HIPPY Community


Our HIPPY Community 2011!
{Learn more about HIPPY or find one in your community HERE.}

As a Christian, one of my concerns with homeschooling was the “homeschoolers are weirdos” argument. CRAZINESS, right! Or was it… Learning to love ‘as we are going’! Christ called us to love Him and Others. Simple. If we seem weird because we do that then oh well. We also plan to interact with Christians and non-Christians; homeschool groups are no exceptions. I mean we don’t stop shopping at Wal-Mart because we’re not owed by Christians and aren’t solely employing Christians. We are called to be in the world just not Of the world.
Maggie is only 3 and therefore most homeschool groups don’t consider us “homeschooling” yet and have few to no activities for her age group. So we are using the local HIPPY group as our “homeschool group” for now and using the next 2 years before kindergarten to soak up as much as I can about homeschooling and groups/coops!

“Your child will not become a social misfit. Children do not need to be socialized in a large group of same-age children to become well-adjusted socially. Quite the opposite. Most parents want their children to learn their social graces from adults, not other children. Homeschoolers have healthy relationships with people of all ages, including the new mother next door, the retired couple who loves to garden, their friends at ballet, 4-H and Karate and, most important, their parents.” – 10 Most Important Things You need to know about Homeschooling


What are your thoughts on community? Anyone else doing HIPPY out there? Anyone in my area in a great homeschool group/coop?
