We are debating home schooling our children.
Right now they are only 4 and 1 so we have a little time to figure it out but curious about our options.
Any Advice is helpful :)
We were thinking letting them do elementry in public, then switching to home schooling around 4th or 5th grade. Good or bad idea? Why or why not?
Do you teach your kids or do you have someone else? Which do you prefer, or whats better for the kids?
How to you go about even starting home schooling? Who do you contact, where do you get the books and tests to make it all legit?
What do you do with your kids about being "social" still. We are not religous so church isnt likely, so where else can you take kids to meet other kids, to make friends?
or any other tips or things i should know feel free to add :)) THANK YOU!
Thank you all for the advice :) It has been very helpful, i am deffinatly thinking about going with HS. The only thing that has me still on the edge about it is (selfish I know) I was looking forward to being able to go back to work and have free time when the kids were in school. ( I am currently a SAHM)
But I really beleive home schooling is the best way to go for my kids. Is there anyone who has SOMEONE else home school their children? I was even thinking maybe if I can find another like minded mom in my area with kids around the same age, maybe teaming up, and one week she does it, the next I do. That way we still get our free time, the kids get what they deserve, and they also will have interaction with other kids other than family, and even diffrent kinds of learning styles... Would that be a good idea?
