  • Yes, I have 3 children ages 15 , 10 , and 6. The oldest is in public school, but I've always homeschooled the two youngest.

  • There are a ton of moms on here that homeschool. If you type 'homeschool' into the search field you'll find a lot of homeschool groups that you can join to meet other moms that homeschool.

  • In fact one of the groups has close to 6000 members, so that should give you an idea of how many moms on here homeschool. :)

  • This is also my first year homeschooling too. Im a bit nervous about it. We just moved and the schools arent up to my standards so I feel I have no other choices. Nevertheless, Im still working on getting all my stuff together and it will likely be late August before we even get started. My oldest is 15 and Im going to try to get her into a private school so that she can finish highschool. I dont feel equipped to homeschool her. Its all new for me but I know its the right thing to do. Good luck to you and me both..

  • I am thinking about homeschooling myself (first baby due in a few weeks), yes I know it's early but as momofsaee said there aren't any schools here up to my standards. I have several SILs who homeschool one has a midschooler this year and is doing a homeschool that is web based, perhaps this is something momofasaee could look into for her 15 year old. PM me if you need more information I am sure I can get info from my SIL.

  • I homeschool, this will be our second year. I am the group owner of "Christian Homeschoolers" here on Cafemom if you'd like to come join us. There are alot of veteran homeschoolers ( and newbies too) in the group who have a wealth of information and support!!)
