Thinking about homeschooling your child(ren)? There are tons of reasons why you can or should homeschool. There are also reasons why you shouldn’t homeschool. Most of those reasons are personal (finances, time, health…) despite what others (who don’t homeschool) would like you to think. If you are considering the wonderful transition to the homeschooling world, I applaud you. You will never know unless you step out of your comfort zone and try.
So where do you go for help? Who do you turn to for answers or comfort? Where do you start? Learning the pros and cons of homeschooling is a good starting point. Joining a forum of homeschoolers is another excellent starting place. Veteran homeschoolers can easily answer questions for you and offer support. They can direct you to places you would have never thought about on your own. A good “How to Homeschool” guide makes stepping out a lot easier too. The guide should present vital information in sequential steps. I liken them to a blueprint or a lesson plan.
Best wishes on your new adventure!
