How To Homeschool Part 2

Last week I shared an e-book about how to homeschool. I think it is big help to families new to homeschooling. This week I found a neat webinar on You Tube called 5 Things I Wish I Had Known When I Started Homeschooling.

5 Things I Wish I Had Known When I Started Homeschooling

The video offers great insight from veteran homeschool Moms. I like hearing from others what has and hasn’t worked for them in their homeschooling adventures. I have tried things that didn’t work for others, and lo and behold, it worked for me.

It is okay to experiment with different homeschooling techniques, curriculums, styles… That is the only way you will ever know what truly works for you and your children. It is also a great way to discover new techniques you never would have dreamed would work for you. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Don’t be afraid to fail…failure simply means you discovered something that doesn’t work for you and helps you pinpoint what does.

Dare to be different this year. Try something that is not in your homeschooling comfort zone. Share your experiences with others so we can learn from you.

If you have tried new and different things this year, please take a minute and leave a comment for the rest of us who are eager to learn from you!

Should I or Shouldn’t I?–That’s the Question

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!
