Thank you to everyone for your support of HA in 2014! May your holidays be happy and we look forward to continuing our work in 2015.
Hi. Very good articles, honestly. I am just wondering if there are articles on non-fundamentalist homeschooling families, who have allowed their kids to watch regular television, movies, fraternize liberally, etc. ? However, thank you for your honest portrayal of homeschooling from the evangelical standpoint (it would be nice to read stories of homeschoolers who were not non-secularized and insulated). God bless.
There have been a few. But HA doesn’t get many submissions from non-religious homeschoolers. That could be because there wasn’t very many of those from our generation, or because they haven’t found our website yet since we tend to get passed around the religious homeschooling circles.
