Group Description

Welcome!

The Bahá’í Homeschooling list is a support group for homeschoolers (or those thinking about doing so) who wish to educate our children using the guiding principles of the Bahá’í Faith, and for people wanting to learn about what that means. All discussions assume that the members of the list have, or are willing to, familiarize themselves with the basic teachings and tenets of the Bahá’í Faith, and are working under the belief that the Sacred Scriptures of the central figures of our Faith are the revealed Word of God, and are therefore infallible.

It is our belief that homeschooling, as our profession and chosen way of life, is supported in the Holy Writings of the Faith, and that we are educating our children in accordance with guidance from Bahá’u’lláh, Abdu’l-Bahá, and Shoghi Effendi, as well as support from the Universal House of Justice. Abdu’l-Bahá was, Himself, primarily educated at home, and we believe we are on the best path for our children by following in His footsteps.

This is an open list, so not all members must be Bahá’ís. However, this is neither a forum for theological debate, nor to debate the verity and efficacy of homeschooling. It is our goal to achieve a spirit of sharing, kindness and loving support.

If you need more information about the Bahá’í Faith, please feel free to ask questions. Also, be sure to check the "Links" feature on the menu bar on the left side of the homepage for websites that can also answer your questions.

One of our members shared this insight:
"...children will look at their parents and think "what did the Faith give them?" If they see that it brought us joy and contentment and inner peace they are more likely to want it for themselves than if they see nothing but responsibilities and tiredness and problems."

Joy, contentment and inner peace..... now THERE's a goal for homeschooling we can all look forward to striving towards.
