I want to home school my son. But, have no idea where to start or what to do. I start research on it and get confused because I'm not for sure what to look for or anything. If someone could shed some light on it, that would be great. Many thanks

First thing you will want to do is check out HSLDA and find out what is required by law in the state you live to do homeschooling legally. Here is a direct link to that: http://www.hslda.org/laws/default.asp
If you can meet your state requirements the next thing to do is check out your local library and ask if they have any contact information for the local homeschool groups...call them...meet with them and pick their brains... LOL.
Also there are several homeschool groups here on cafemom (I admin one). Join a group and pick their brains..... Good luck!!!
