Instilling Basics Teaches Leadership

"If I told you that homeschool parents had established a leadership academy in their home, you might be surprised. Even most homeschool parents would be surprised because surveys show the two main reasons parents choose homeschooling are to avoid the negative peer environment of public schools and to teach from a religious perspective. Few homeschool parents identify training their children to be leaders as the reason they chose home education. But are they right? Perhaps many homeschool parents are training their children to be leaders without realizing it.

In fact, the two main reasons given by homeschooling parents for their choice point to the development of a leadership academy in the home. Preparing children to be independent thinkers rather than to follow the latest fad of their peers and presenting the case for belief in something beyond themselves are important for the development of leaders."
