by Michelle Swanson from her blog One Big Connected Family – Why Do Homeschooling Families Have So Many Kids???
The big question remains: why do homeschooling families have so many kids?
Some families are part of the “quiver-full” movement. You know, the Duggars and the Bates kinds of families. The ones that believe you should always be seeking and never preventing the blessing of children from God. You can google that whole philosophy for the next few years and have some fun. Our family doesn’t fall into that category.
Those of us who don’t fall into it, probably just REALLY LOVE kids. If you are going to live on one income and keep your kids around you ALL THE TIME and sacrifice yourself totally…paying your taxes but getting virtually none of the educational benefits for doing so, and then shelling out loads of extra to educate your kids at home, you BETTER love kids.
Many of us (our family included) DO take seriously what the Bible says about children being a blessing. So, that’s another guess as to why a lot of Christian homeschooling families can be on the large side.
