Casey said, "We really do a lot of eclectic things, we just have learning all over the place."
Verbick said, "We're able to use practical experience at maybe an earlier age, because we have that time allowance with our kids. Then we can also, age appropriately, add responsibilities, that they're able to use those skills in a practical manner in all types of situations."
Parents choose to home-school for a variety of reasons. Verbick says that she's seeing more and more parents considering home-schooling as an alternative.
Verbick and Casey agree that there's a popular misconception toward home-schooling and socializing. They argue that they teach their kids about socialization everyday.
Verbick said, "It is not that much different than what's being considered the traditional method, we're doing the tradition method too, its just not in that path."
