What You Need to Know to Start Homeschooling

Description & Show Notes

Once you have made the decision to start homeschooling, where do you begin? Have you ever wished that someone would just give you a checklist so you could mark off the steps to get your homeschool off the ground?

Pull up your comfy chair and listen in while our panel of veteran homeschool moms cover some of those items from your checklist:

- Am I required to have a degree of some sort to teach my children at home?

- How do I find the right curriculum? Especially if I have multiple children and they have radically different personalities?

- You don’t know how poor I was at math when I was a student. How am I ever going to teach my kids math?!

- There is no room in my tiny little house for a schoolroom. Now what?

- Organization is a foreign language to me. How can I possibly keep track of all the books and supplies and records and “stuff”?

These ladies will share practical ideas and encouragement from their years of experience, as not only homeschool moms but also their 20+ years of counseling and directing families at homeschool conventions. They are passionate about helping families get a good start on their homeschool journey.

Chart Your Path from Public School to Homeschool

Description & Show Notes

Now more than ever, you might be faced with some very real and urgent decisions to make about your children’s education. Perhaps you’ve never even considered homeschooling as an option for your family. Or perhaps you have known that you need to make a change for your kids, and homeschooling has been kicking around in the back of your mind for some time.

On today's podcast, these veteran homeschoolers talk in-depth about making the transition from public or private education to home education. Listen to one veteran homeschool mom talk about her experience transitioning to homeschooling as a child. And another mom who made the decision to move her own children to a homeschool model. 

If you have been asking yourself the following questions, this workshop is for you:
- I don’t have a teaching degree, how can I possibly teach my children?
- Will my kids suffer academically by being homeschooled? Will they be able to get into college?
- Is homeschooling even legal? 

These and many other questions will be covered by our panel of veteran homeschool moms. Drawing on their experiences homeschooling their children, as well as over 20+ years of counseling families at homeschool conventions across the US and Canada, they are passionate about sharing an education choice that has worked so well for them.
