I live in the state of California. I'm wondering what i have to do to homeschool a Kindergarten boy. How do i know that his education will count if later i decide to put him back in a public school? Where do i find the standards for what he needs to know? How many hours of work should i expect out of myself for his homeschooling? What other things should i consider before i make a final decision one way or the other? Any advice, tips, opinions, in put from your own experiences; etc?

Kindergarten is not required, so you don't have to worry about it "counting". Check into charter schools in CA. There are many that allow you to choose your curriculum. You get to homeschool and at the same time he is enrolled in a public school so he has the school record you are concerned about, and you have a teacher who will help to guide you. Here is a link to all CA charter schools with home school programs http://www.homefires.com/charter/

So you are going to teach him it's OK to quit instead??? Work with the school and your Pedi, maybe even a behavioral specialist if you have to .... but don't teach your kid that when the going gets tuff you just quit.
