Abeka moms, Christine and Dana, both have husbands with atypical schedules. A traditional school environment made it difficult for their husbands to spend time with their kids. Since the switch to homeschool, these families have seen a huge improvement. It’s allowed more time for their children to be around their fathers and has created the flexibility they needed to get a great education built on a Christian foundation.
Christine started homeschooling her children sixteen years ago. Her husband’s job required that he work weekends, and his schedule wouldn’t allow for them to have a true family day. At the time, their kids were in a typical school environment Monday through Friday. But once they began homeschool with Abeka, they were finally able to have time together as a complete family.
Dana and her husband own and operate a ranch, and when they decided on homeschool, he had been traveling frequently for work as well. It was getting tough for the entire family to spend time together. Dana and her children also help out on the ranch, so when issues arose in their public school system, she started digging for ways to keep her children at home to have more time for family, to help on the ranch, and to better their education. After attending a homeschool conference and a lot of research, she chose Abeka Academy. For their family, the video homeschool lessons have been the perfect fit.
Abeka Academy made it easy for Dana. DVD and video lessons on demand helped to lighten the load, and the accredited option gave her peace of mind that her children were always on track. “They did the work for me,” she said.
Dana and Christine have more in common than they knew. When they made the decision to homeschool with Abeka, it gave each of their families the opportunity and flexibility to grow closer.
