To homeschool or not to homeschool?? That is the question that has been on my mind lately. So, I thought I would blog about it in the hopes that some of you have experience in this area. Thinking back I have considered homeschooling an option since my oldest was starting school, but until this point in time we have gone the “traditional” route of private and public school.
You may wonder why we are considering homeschooling since we’ve had a positive school experience so far and the short answer is that we would like more of certain things in our children’s education and less of others. I know that is a vague answer but I’ll save the long answer for another post. And I think the biggest reason is that the thought of homeschooling has never left my mind, so I think it’s time to start listening more closely to my motherly instincts.
I have just begun to research homeschool regulations at the Georgia Department of Education website and the Georgia General Assembly website to find out the law concerning homeschooling. Next will be the research about curriculum and how to implement a productive homeschool in our household.
Today I would love to hear from any moms who are or have homeschooled your children. What works or doesn’t work for your family? Do you have a favorite website/resource that you could share? Any words of wisdom for a parent new to homeschooling?
I look forward to hearing about your experiences and sharing ours as we decide if homeschooling is right for our family!by
