Hi everyone

I'm a 33 year old mother of a teenage girl, she is almost 15.  I would love to homeschool her but I don't even know where to start.  We live in missouri.  I hope to hear from anyone I love to chat and learn new ideas.

Hello! Welcome.

The first place to start is to decide why you want to homeschool and WHAT you want out of it? Do you want excellent college prep or more of an enjoyment of learning? Does she need to catch up? build self esteem? Is she really far ahead and need a challenge? Or do you just want her home? 8) There isn't a wrong answer but finding the WHAT will help point you in the right direction.

 I agree! Also find out the laws for your state so you know what you need to do to homeschool here is a link http://www.hslda.org/laws/analysis/Missouri.pdf
