Considering Homeschooling?

Have you been toying with the idea of homeschooling? Are you thinking about giving it a whirl? I hope that you do... it was one of the best decisions that I ever made. But there are a few things that you need to keep in mind when beginning this journey.

1)Review all of your options and speak with veteran homeschoolers
2) Speak with your spouse and determine what is best for your family. The entire family will need to work together to make it work!
3) Determine what style of homeschool curriculum fits your family's needs. Each person and each family has specific needs that will determine exactly what curriculum will work best for them.
4)Determine where you will learn. Some do better with a specific place, and others do well wherever they find a spot.
