Have you heard about the online bookstore The Learning Basket? We are featuring one of the beautiful mommies behind one of our favorite online bookshop today, Ms. Rosanne Rodriguez Unson.
We officially started homeschooling when my daughter was 2 but we were doing “learning” activities without the label even before then. Reading aloud was a big part of our daily routine from when she was a newborn.
Why did you choose to homeschool your child?
Honestly, my husband and I go back to this same question every now and then, and so far, we’ve arrived at the same answer – we want her to enjoy her childhood. Even before she was born, we knew that our daughter will not be put to school at a very early age. We wanted her to be free to move and play and explore whenever she can and wants because this is what children should be doing. We want her to grow up with a true love for learning. We want her to wonder and marvel at the things around her, not because of a school requirement, but because our world IS truly wonderful and marvelous. We want to ignite a passion for reading and/or and/or math and/or science and/or art and/or music and/or sports, not because of academic pursuits, but because to find one’s passion is to find happiness. We want her to grow up in full awareness of God’s love for her and we believe that it is by our example of loving God and loving her that she can truly see this.
