DH really wants to homeschool our son at least untill middle school. Hes olny 4 right now. But Im not sure about this. Im worried he wont get enough interaction with other kids his age. But at the same time Im worried hell get picked on if he goes to school. we think he has ADD or ADHD..like Dh, so I thought that it might be better for him to go to school and be taught by someone that knows what they are doing. I dont know what to do. Please tell me how you decided to homeschool, and how you do it.

My plan was only to homeschool for 1 year to get my daughter caught up because I was tired of fighting the school for help. We started in the beginning part of 4th grade. We haven't stopped because we had so much fun and she caught up to grade level and started advancing so fast. My younger girls didn't want to be left out, and we're still homeschooling. My oldest is in 9th this year, and the other's are in 4th and 2nd.
The homeschooling community is much bigger than people realize. There are all sorts of things to get you kids involved in and places to meet other kids. For a child your son's age I would recommend checking out your local library and finding out if they have a story hour or preschool playgroup. Your son is a good age to experiment with. Try homeschooling him now and see what it's all about and make up your mind later. GL
