How do you define "homeschooling right"? What is the "right" way to homeschool? Just curious. I am not sure if I am doing it "right" and would like to be so informed by the "experts" on how to homeschool.

I don't think you have to be an expert to know when a child is being properly educated :-) The signs of a good school (in the home or out of the home)? Exposure to social situations, exposure to life situations, the opportunity to make friends and frequently hang out and enjoy time with other kids your age, learning from knowledgeable instructors, being able to achieve grades and learn material on the appropriate level, proper SAT preparation, proper college preparation, proper real-world and business preparation, an atmosphere conducive to learning, opportunities to lean outside of the classroom (field trips, work-study, internships) and proper discipline and concern for the child's well being so on and so forth.
To me, those are hallmarks of a good school (and "doing it right!") regardless of if it is hybrid, satellite, home, private, boarding or public!
