MP 033 : Educational choices; how do you know what’s best for your child

“…parents must be acknowledged as the first and foremost educators of their children. Their role as educators is so decisive that scarcely anything can compensate for their failure in it.”
~ Familiaris Consortio #36

Making educational choices for our children is a task that is daunting and stressful for most parents. How do parents know what will be best for their children and for their family? The reality is that no one can make this decision for you. Parents need the grace of God to consider homeschooling, public school, or Catholic school and chose what is best for their child. In this podcast we give some principles that we have used to guide our decisions and share some experiences of all the different schooling options we have chosen.

  1. Hi,
    I’ve been enjoying listening to your podcasts. This educational podcast is very timely for our family. Just curious– y’all talked about sending your kids to a Montessori school for the young/preschool years. Bet you didn’t mention specifically, so I’m wondering– how old were they when you first sent them? Our pediatrician recently recommended beginning kids full-time in a Montessori school at age 2 1/2…! Seems very young to me, so I suppose I’m interested in another opinion/perspective.
    Thanks! God bless.
