Homeschoolers Using Less Alcohol, Tobacco, & Other Drugs

Many homeschooling parents have been prodded with this leading question: “Why do you want to shelter your child from the world so much?” Sheltering or not, does research tell us anything new about the effects of home-based education? The Context When someone negatively asks regarding the home education of children, “What about socialization?,” they usually have no credible evidence to support their concerns. Now comes more substantiation that homeschooling offers just the kind of socialization that most adults want for children and adolescents. Researcher Michael Vaughn of St. Louis University and his colleagues recently asked the question, “Are homeschooled adolescents less likely to use alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs?”[1] Their findings are fascinating and add one more piece to the puzzle regarding the potential positive effects of parent-led home-based education.

Thank you for your support of the 2015 IAHE Home Educators’ Convention!

I was so, so blessed by such an encouraging, well-organized convention, which I know was a labor of love that involved much hard work and sacrifice from all of the IAHE Board Members and the many other volunteers. Thank you all so very, very much!

I’m so very thankful to every person who played a part in pulling together a fabulous convention. I have been homeschooling for 13 years and have attended so many conventions. I almost didn’t come this year, but I felt compelled to show my support for the IAHE. I was almost feeling like I’ve outgrown the need for convention. Boy, was I wrong. The sessions I attended were so relevant and timely, offering the exact encouragement I needed to hear.

Thank you for all of your hard work to put on a fantastic conference! The past few weeks of schooling have been challenging and discouraging to the point that I was thinking maybe I shouldn’t continue with this homeschool journey. I left the conference feeling refreshed, encouraged, strengthened, and energized to keep running the race. Thank you!!!
