Llewellyn and I attended the HEAV conference June 11-13 at the Richmond Convention Center. I think we have found the best way for us to attend the conference. First, Llewellyn’s parents come up and keep the children. This is a good time for us to be alone, to discuss school and other issues, and choose curriculum. Second, we stay in a hotel in Short Pump and drive back and forth to the Convention Center (we’ve tried staying downtown and like staying on the West End much better).
He noted that whereas 70-88% of children in typical youth groups end up leaving the faith, 94% of children who are homeschooled retain the faith of their parents.
