Homeschool Advice How to Get Started and Beginning Homeschooling Problems

  • How do I start homeschooling?
    Answer...
  • Hi. I've just begun homeschooling my 14 yr. old son, and the problem I need help with is how to homeschool and hold down a job at the same time. I'm determined to homeschool because public schools are detrimental to his happiness and to his learning, but I'm having a hard time giving the "teaching" my full attention after being at work all day. We've both decided that unschooling would be beneficial for him, or at least we're looking into it, but at the moment I feel that basically it's as if he's on an extended vacation. I have things for him to do, but it feels as if I'm not doing enough. I guess I need something more structured because the "unschooling" isn't working, but I don't want a regimented program, either, because so many of the things in a program like that don't interest him, and then the problems begin. The homeschooling network here is incredible, and I do know that I should utilize it, but my difficulty with that comes with working during the day. Any suggestions?
    Thanks!
    Dear K.,
    Answer...
  • Do you have to be more educated, as a teacher, to be sure you get everything you should in a unit study?
    Answer...
  • We are beginner homeschoolers. Weve been homeschooling my 4th grader since the beginning of the year. He absolutely hates it. What should I do?
    Answer...
  • There's a support group in my town that looks like it would be wonderful, but I'm really not sure I should take time out of our already busy schedule to go to its activities. What are the pros and cons about joining a support group?
    Answer...
  • Is there any information about homeschooling an only child? We have been homeschooling our daughter since the 3rd grade. She currently is in the 7th grade. I read extensively and subscribe to many homeschooling periodicals, but I've never seen this topic addressed. Thanks, Paulette

  • I have a problem. My son has off and on refused to go to school this year. He is in the 2nd grade and he just says he wants me to homeschool him. I have wanted to in the past and did for preschool and kindergarten. I believe my biggest problem is that I am plagued with fear. I am overwhelmed with the idea. I already have issues of finding a sitter for him when I need too. I have two children a daughter who is 6 and he is 8. He is much more persistent in needing and wanting his parents. I want to be there for him but I am not sure if taking him out of school in the middle of the year is ok. I don't want him to think he runs the show. Most people whom I have consulted tell me to be strong and send him to school. I am very confused. Most people don't understand the concept of homeschooling. I know its a huge commitment but I would like some professional advice, what do you think?
    Help!

    Answer...
  • Im convinced homeschooling is best, but I work part time and would have to share the teaching responsibilities with my mother. Could something like that work?
    Answer...
  • How does a single parent without any family or good social supports homeschool a child? I have to work full time.
    Answer...
  • I have a daughter that has been in a home bound teaching situation for nearly two years. Now they made her go back. She hates it, and has always hated school, but she's a straight A student who loves to learn. I just don't know what to do? I don't know how to get her started in homeschooling. Every one at the school board tells me I can't do it. Please give me some feedback!
    Answer...
  • I would like for someone to come to my home and homeschool my child for me. How can I go about doing this?
