(I’m really hoping that this doesn’t break any rules, so I’ll remove it if it does! Also, I’m really not trying to start any fights or anything; I’m just hoping to find others like me…)
I’m 24 years old, and while I don’t have children yet, my husband and I are hoping to grow our little family within the next few years. I’m really interested in CM homeschooling, and it really feels like something that God is calling me to do once I have kiddos.
For background, I’m a confessional Lutheran in a pretty religiously-conservative denomination/synod. I believe that the Bible is the infallible Word of God, that we are saved by Grace Alone through Faith Alone through Scripture Alone, etc. (I’m very very Lutheran!!)
However, I lean more “liberal” in politics. I’m a supporter of universal healthcare, really socialist in some specific other specific areas, and I’m not completely opposed to governmental oversight for some things. (It’s one of those situations where I feel like there are many moments of “choosing the lesser of two evils,” which for me tends to usually be democrat candidates for office.
I work in a healthcare environment, and I am very “pro-vaccine,” as well (and I fully support mask mandates during COVID-19).
I do not mean to bash those who have very different political leanings than I do, and I do support many personal freedoms. This is not to disparage you at all, and I wish you all the best, and I truly want you to have the rights that the Constitution has afforded us. But I really don’t agree with many political viewpoints that I’ve seen from various homeschooling communities.
That is to say, it has been hard to find people like me who are more “liberal” politically, who are homeschooling their kids or planning to do so. I’m just reaching out to see if there are others, as I really want to homeschool my kids, but I feel really stressed because it feels like I may not have support from the general homeschool community due to my beliefs.
Is there anyone else like me out there??Alysee123Participant
I am a secular liberal homeschooler. We are a small but mighty group. I am not religious but we homeschool because my husband and I didn’t have the greatest experience at public school. Welcome!NoelNoelParticipant
Good to know! And thank you!! It’s really encouraging to know that there are others out there 🙂 How long have you been homeschooling?
