Hi I'm Karen and currently interested in homeschooling my 10 year old son. I am discouraged with the public school system and am taking a stand for my sons education. He his currently going into 5th grade. His love of school has declined with the pressures of common core/ela testing. Any info will be appreciated, I am in upstate NY. Thanks

Best way to start is to Google "homeschool requirements by state" or "homeschool requirements NY". You want to be sure you are following your state's laws for homeschooling. Every state is different. We are in TN and have HSd since the beginning with DD(almost 9) and DS(almost 10). Good luck!

 Check out the homeschooling groups here on CM. They are FULL of great info. First, find out what the requirments for your state are.

 

I have been homeschooling for four years now(since DD was in pre-k), and love it. It is best for our family. Feel free to ask any questions :)

HI Karen. Welcome.

I understand that public school can be frustrating. You should check out the homeschooling moms group. There is a lot of great information in that group.

Like others have said look into homeschooling groups on here. They are pretty awesome.

Check into your states laws & requirements into homeschooling. Every state has different laws about it. 

From what I've read New York is one of the more strict states when it comes to homeschooling but of course that doesn't mean it's impossible.

Look on Facebook for local homeschooling groups to get some ideas for homeschooling in your area or the laws/rules. I'm going to start homeschooling next year too.
