One of the Reasons We Home school

When Alex was 3, I heard Val Shepard (Elisabeth Elliot's daughter) speak about 'servanthood'. She home schooled their 8 children. She asked, "where do our children learn to serve and deny themselves if they are gone all day?"

Would a teenager really give up some free time to read to a younger sibling? Or help them with their letters or teach them to put their laundry away?
