  • Make a schedule and start doing your activities. You can start now. Homeschooling doesn't have to follow the same schedule.

  • First, you need to check out your state laws on home educating. Go to and look up your state. Then, you need to figure out your style and your child's learning style. Here is what I did, I went to library by myself and checked out every book they had on homeschooling and spent the next two weeks reading and observing my kids.
