  • My husband and I are homeschool graduates. We'll be homeschooling our children, although they're only 2 1/2, 1 1/2, and 5 months old at the moment. There are a lot of great homeschool groups here on CafeMom too =)

  • mUstBdeStiny08:
    I tried the online school with my son. It didn't work. I was sad. The program was great, we used k12, but we just couldn't seem to make it work for his learning style. We have since switched to Charlotte Mason and the FIAR series. Those are working better. How old are your kids?

  • Depending on where you live I would say WAIT AS LONG AS POSSIBLE to introduce FORMAL education. My state has a compulsory school age of 8 and with my son, I wish I had waited. I am slowly introducing my middle child to school by reading out loud and fun simple crafts and games. They grow up so fast as it is. I am trying to get mine to slow down a bit and enjoy being kids :).
