23.  Improved Family Relationships 

Homeschooling allows family members to understand one another more holistically. For parents, watching their children progress academically and watching them occasionally struggle, allows for a more compassionate view of their efforts.

Through effective networking, parents can achieve one of the Top Ten Reasons for Homeschooling in 2006 - diversity.

Older students have the time freedom to get a "real job" instead of working fast-food or at a movie theater. They can take on mentorships or apprenticeships in areas that interest them, and come out of high school with a much better idea of what they want to major in college and to do with the rest of their life. In addition, as a hs parent you see what areas interest them and where they are strongest, and can better help guide them in the choice of a career.

In public schools, teachers may advocate evolution, abortion, homosexuality, women's liberation, premarital sex, situation ethics, values clarification, the occult, etc. Prayer and presentation of Biblical and religious truth are essentially banned.

40.  Better Textbooks

Public school texts may advocate all the humanistic false doctrines we have mentioned. They never advocate or defend Biblical teaching, respect for God, etc., because such has been banned. In home schools, excellent texts are available that advocate pure values. History and science are approached from Biblical viewpoints. Literature assignments reinforce true morality, without violence, profanity, and other forms of immorality.
