 Hi Beth,

I'm not sure if you're homeschooling through a program or not, but I have my kids enrolled in a school through K12. It is a really awesome program that helps me stay organized and on track. Also, they send you all the curriculum and supplies and then at the end of the year you send some of it back so you don't have to worry about keeping it for years. I'd be happy to answer any questions you have (we've only done it for 1 year)!

Hi Beth! Welcome

Quoting CheyJacksMom:

Hi Ladies! I'm Beth. I was in this group a little over a year ago when I was teaching my daughter 1st grade. It got to be too much for me and we ended up putting her in a charter school for the last 9 weeks of 1st grade and all of 2nd grade. But now my state has gone to the common core cirriculum and I dont agree with it. My hubby and I feel homeschooling is the only option now. As we cant afford to send her to a private school. So I'm back in the group :-) and needing some advice.
How do I go about doing his without losing it again? This time I will also be teaching my son kindergaten. The main reason why I gave up last time was b/c it seemed to be a constant fight with my daughter. And now I'm going to be juggleing 2 of them. :-/ And ontop of it all my MIL is an ex-teacher. Shes constantly giving me books and cirriculum that I dont find that I need at the moment. Mainly cirric. for 4th grade and up Like I have all the storage space in the world to hold onto it until then. Im talking about the 3inch 3 ringed binders full of all kinds of things and teacher how-to's in the classroom kind of books that are inchs thick. I know shes trying to help and be supportive But it would help more if she would hold onto it until I actually need it or asked if she had anything that I could use. Ugh! sorry about that But my hubby being the kid of a teacher wants me to make up a classroom and be in there with the kids for the school alloted time. And not to come out until schooling is done. He suggested 8-2 of course comming out for lunch but then going back in and running it like an actual school (and reccess scheduled too). Im too laid back to be that scheduled. I was able to go to a mini-confrence for homeschoolers last thursday and it was amazing I took so many notes and it got me really excited about homeschooling But then my hubby informs me that my in-laws feel that Im going to pretty much fail since I couldnt do it last time.
What do I do? What would you do? Im seeing more and more of the positive side of homeschooling and Im determinded to do this and be the mother im suppose to be but just knowing what is being said about me is frustrating and a little heartbreaking. And on top of it all we are struggling financially majorly. I was thinking of going back to work pt to help but then i found out about the common core cirric. and did my research and didnt like what I found so here I am.
Any advice out there?

Hi. I'm not new to CM but I'm new to this group. I have 1 son who's only a year old but homeschooling may be in our future so thought I'd start learning.

Welcome to the group Keri! We all start out felling the way you do, it isn't as scary or as hard as you think it is just take it one day at a time.

Hello Everyone - I'm a mom of three children, 13, 11 and 6. We've been homeschooling for two years now. It was the best decision we ever made to keep our kids home with us. I hope to meet some great folks on here! :-)  We live in South Jersey.

Hello,


My name is Jessica.  I have been married to DH for almost 13 years and am mommy to a 6,4,2 and upcoming arrival (due early Nov.)  We have two boys (oldest two) and will have two girls. 

We started homeschooling DS two years ago with preschool and will start within the next few weeks with both boys (1st grader and preschool).  I have a lot to learn about this stuff and am anxious about doing more than one child. 

We are starting mid-summer because of the baby on the way.  I figure this will help us get into a routine and also give us a head start since we will have down time when baby girl gets here I am sure.
