In our early days of joining our local homeschooling community, experienced homeschooling parents hinted at how closely bonded their kids were to each other. At the time, my little ones were much too little for me to really recognize this attachment, but now as they have gotten older I see their closeness deepen. They certainly have their moments of jousting and bickering, but being together all day every day creates a magical bond that enhances their play and improves their interpersonal communication.
Seeing this sibling attachment flourish is one of the most appealing effects of homeschooling. For us, homeschooling is all about focusing on family as the centerpiece of our lives, and watching our children deepen their relationships with each other each day reinforces why we chose this path.
