Ever since hubby told me to really consider homeschooling our children by next year, I have been Googling about homeschooling programme, talked to my SIL who homeschool her 5 children, talked to her children about what they have learned, got some AOP books from my aunt who homeschool both her children, took a look at ACE workbooks and met with a mother who just started homeschool this year using the Sonlight and Noeo Science curriculum.
Meeting with some of these mothers motivated me to start homeschooling as soon as we could. But finance is the obstacle now. We need time to raise up the fund for it. We weren’t prepared earlier for homeschooling so we did not have any education saving for our children.
We wanted them to go through what we went through; government school then to local university with scholarship or government loan. We need not save for their education cost, just like how we got our degree.
Unfortunately, due to the deterioration of Malaysian education standard, we see the need to homeschool our children. We see the need to put character first before academic excellence in which the government school does not emphasize.
We are praying that God will bless us with more than enough to finance our children homeschooling needs.
