Christian parents have a God-given responsibility to teach their children to love the Lord their God, the only source of all that is good and right in the universe.
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates. (Deut 6:4-9, NIV)
Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. (Eph 6:4)
An increasing number of parents choose homeschooling to help them fulfill this responsibility, and they come to see it as a great privilege. CHAP exists to help you delight in your children’s education and to assist you in submitting to the governing authorities of this Commonwealth we call home.
