Hi, I'm planning to start homeschooling my son this year. He's a bit reluctant and I'm alot scared. He is currently in public school and has struggled with organization and motivation all the way…Continue
I too am just beginning in homeschooling our boys. One is 13 and the other 9. We will be doing 4th and 8th grades and yes I too am scared to death. I have taught Kindergarten and 1st grade for 18 years and I don't think that scared me…"
"Wow, great insight, and a great word. Thanks so much for the encouragement. We haven't decided on a curriculum, but instead have purchased our first text book from Aplolgia. We are excited to begin and have started with our son and grand…"
"We brought our son home in the middle of 9th grade--he was 14. Never too late! We have seen a lot of positive changes in him, although I will admit at times it is a struggle. But nothing like the struggles we had when he was in school. I keep…"
I will be homeschooling my rising 6th and 5th graders for the first time next school year. I just wanted to tell you that and let you know that you are not alone. Middle school is tough and my 11 year old is not ready for it. Why should…"
"We live in a neighborhood and had 6 hives in our back yard. You can have honeybees on an apartment balcony. Our neighbors loved our honey. We had the neighborhood kids over to help "inspect" the bees. They are really not a problem and…"
"Try mason bees if you are not looking at keeping a hive. Since they are not hive bees, they do not swarm, and seem to be relatively easy to keep. They are individual home dwellers with each living in a small hole. Unfortunately, they do not produce…"
"Wow, thanks for all the encouraging words. My son is finally warming up to the idea because some of his friends at church will be homeschooling this year too. I found a catalog from Lifeway and he has already decided he wants to take the auto…"
"I just started on this website and still don't totally get the whole process but I would be glad to lift you in prayer and answer any questions that I can. Homeschooling has been an amazing journey for our family and has taken so many twists…"
"Hi, I'm Susan Jones and I live in LA. That's Lower Archdale for anyone who lives in the triad area. I plan to start homeschooling my son and my grand daughter in the fall. They are 12 and 7. This is a big leap of faith for me because I am…"
"Thanks so much for sharing this Linda. I am actually getting excited. My son is starting to warm up to the idea since I came across a catalog from Lifeway Christian Book Store that had auto maintenance as an elective. He wants to get started on that…"
"This is our first year of homeschooling and I have a 12 year old boy (also a 9 year old boy, 5 year old boy and 4 year old girl). He was not excited about homeschooling. However, once we started, he has really enjoyed himself. He enjoys being at…"
"No i just took my 12 yr old out in Feb 2010 and it has been life changing so much more confident and happy. We had alot of problems with public school, wish i had done before now. I work full time but my hours are a split shift, so it works out ok.…"
"Definately find your state homeschool agency for referrals to local homeschool groups. For us, socialization is so abundant that we have to try to be selective in what we participate in. We have two groups that we are members of and do the art type…"
"Thanks for the encouragement. Any further pointers will be much appreciated. My son isn't exactly thrilled with the idea right now, but my 26-year-old daughter is also taking her 7-year-old out of public school and that's his main…"
