Whether you have made the decision, or whether you are still thinking about it, here is a collection of articles that will help transition into homeschooling.
We started homeschooling in 1998 – Josh was 4, Jess 3 and Naomi 1year old. When we were first starting our family we thought / dreamed of homeschooling but then as I settled into motherhood I wasn’t convinced that the methods I knew of homeschooling (schooling at home) would fit my parenting style so I lay aside all thoughts of homeschooling. Until 1997, when Naomi was a baby and needed regular medical treatments in Perth where I met up with an old friend who happened to be homeschooling. She showed me a different side – a collection of resources that encouraged the parent in their involvement in the child’s life, in discipleship and encouraging the kids in their walk with God. I knew we had to think again – this time with different curriculum resources than I had considered before. We were also challenged at this time about building relationships with our kids, about being an influence in their life and felt that homeschooling would give us time with our kids. So we started to homeschool.
