Parenthood: A Stewardship in Education

Reed A. Benson
Professor; BYU Religion Dept, Every once in a while when one of those little children would come into our home, my wife would look down and say, "now Reed, there is a last days baby. Well, when I took her off the ceiling, she said to me, "Reed, don't you think I have anything else to do? Well, bless her heart, like the pioneers that crossed the plains, she did it willingly because she had to. No, that isn't true, but anyway she was a good sport about it. The mother of modern home schooling in Utah said she'd never met a woman with less self confidence going into home schooling than my wife. But she jumped in. She'd had experiences, both good and bad, in the public and private schools that provided a background. After I had completed that experiment for one year, my wife got so excited about it that she's home schooled ever since.

Come enjoy Reed Benson's wit and wisdom.
His wit will make you laugh and his wisdom will touch you deeply. Using examples from his own experiences, Dr. Benson will discuss the many advantages and few disadvantages of homeschooling, legal questions, planning considerations, including curriculum and textbooks, and how to teach in your own home with confidence and faith. He will also share with us how to make the "Lord's library" the foundation of our home school books. May Hinckley Benson will share how their "grand experiment" in homeschooling taught a fearful mother 10 simple principles that assure any mother that she can teach her own children with confidence. She will teach us the importance of being humble and being teachable, both as necessary spiritual qualities in the child and in the parent, and how an attitude of humility will naturally enable us to create a happy, successful family education environment.

The Development of a Home School by Reed Benson (dissertation)President Ezra Taft Benson's son Reed Benson has long been a homeschool advocate and has spoken at many homeschool conventions (including the first Saints and Scholars conference in WA state). You may have purchased his dissertation on homeschooling if you have attended any of these past conferences. Brother Benson's health is now frail and he hasn't done conferences for some years. However, as of September 2005, his dissertation is online at this link so you can still read it and share in the tradition.
