Getting started

Postby karenpasqualucci » Wed Dec 14, 2011 11:21 am

I really liked the list of unsung benefits - they are very real! As a martial artist I see the bullied and the beaten in my classes. One in four children will have been bullied in some way during their school carreer! That is just a side benefit of the homeschooling!

You're right! That is a pretty awesome resource. http://www.home-school.com, A2z, and http://inclusivehomeschool.com are my favorites.

Speaking of introduction posts and 'first 10 steps' posts, this is the most in-depth guide I've found for getting started homeschooling.

Hi, our daughter is in 6th grade. She has been enrolled in a private Christian school. We are unhappy with the educational results thus far. We have no other educational options where we live. So, homeschooling is our last alternative. I have read Mrs. Pride's 10 steps. There are no groups in my area. What I need now is where to go from there. I am a tad overwhelmed with all of the information. And school is going on right now - :( I don't want her to miss lessons.

I have briefly looked at ABeka Academy and a multitude of programs. I'm just not sure what to do.

We all feel overwhelmed in the beginning, so you are in good company. :)

It would help if we knew what state you are in, because that can affect, well, almost everything we can suggest. I would not recommend ABeka Academy under almost any circumstances, so there you go. :-)
