We will begin homeschooling in the fall...I know its a while away but I am trying to prepare so I am ready and I have a few concerns and questions. I don't know any moms that homeschool and I am concerned about making sure he is learning at the speed he should. My mom really wants him to go to school and has made me feel like I am taking that away from him...but he wants this probaby more than I, and I have told him any time he wants to go to school he can......any support out there. What about finding groups of local homeschoolers to socialize with?

First thing you should do is check out www.hslda.org and find out the laws for your state, then check out the homeschooling groups in your area.

You should also decide what kind of homeschooling will be best for you and decide where you'll get curriculum, if you want to get curriculum.

Then let him learn at his pace, that's the great thing about homeschooling, your child can learn as fast, or as slow as they need to without feeling like they have to conform to the norm.

Hi Jarrell. I too want to start more structured home-schooling in the fall. I know that there are programs with homeschool associations, it just depends on where you live. I live in a relatively small city and have found a couple groups. I think the best place to look is at a church somewhere. You could try calling during office hours and asking if they know of anyone or anywhere that has an established home school group. If they don't know they might be able to put you in touch with some one who home schools and who could show you the ropes. You could always start your own too! Let me know how it goes! Good luck with your mom too; I know how that is. Frustrating!
