New to home schooling, actually just starting this week I am scared however my 9 year old was being bullied and had become emotionally disturbed and everyone found it best we pull him from public schools before we woke up one day and he was no longer with us.

with all that being said I am not a teacher, I honestly have no clue what I am doing and I am scared I will fail him any advice or links or anything at this point would be helpful. Thanks in advance

I have the 9 year old (grade 3)
I have a 6 month old and another on the way

Well, sounds like you have very little chance of providing a worse environment at home than he was experiencing at school. Give him a few weeks, if necessary, to calm down and detox from school, and use that time to research curriculum options. If you're feeling overwhelmed, you can try starting with a packaged curriculum for the first year and see how it goes. After the first year is over, you'll have some experience and know what you and your son like/don't like and can then maybe break things up by subject and grade level.

You should also attend this event, and browse through various curriculum options at booths:

BTW, we're also 20 minutes outside St. Louis, in Fenton.
