Homeschooling Moms Homeschooling Moms

My oldest dd wil not trun 4 till May but I am already seriously thinking about home schooling her. Any advice or info you can give me will really help. I'm not very good at researching all this and to be honest I'm quite lost. I live in Ga incase anybody else does and can explain the laws to me. Thanks in advance.

A few books:



 



The Well-Trained Mind
,  A Guide to Classical Education at Home
  by Jessie Wise and Susan Wise Bauer.  This book is GREAT!!  It is a very rigorous way of study but I have
taken many examples from it even though we are fairly relaxed.  It is worth the money for sure!  It goes from Pre-K to 12th.

The Successful
Homeschool Family Handbook 
by:
Raymond and Dorothy Moore.  I recommend
this to every new home educating parent. 
I first read it in ’94 and have read it numerous times.  I recently gave it to one of my daughter in
laws J

Hearted Child
