I want to homeschool our children. But I am not sure the best way to sit down with my Husband and hash it all out. I am already a stay at home mom so it isn’t a huge leap to keep the kids home. Our oldest who is turning 4 will be going into Kindergarten next year. I still have a lot of time to decide all of this but I am always looking for input.
Quite frankly I am not happy with the local school systems where I live and am very wary of putting them into public school. The local Catholic school is very pricey and if we started sending one I would want to send them all. This would end up costing over 20k a year and our budget can’t make that much room. :eek: I realize that that $ would be slow to grow to that amount, but I wouldn’t want to have to change schools for them.
If you are homeschooling can you share some insight into your day? Was it difficult to adjust? I have three young children. Was it easy to work it into your routine or did it take a lot of planning? What curriculum do you use? Is it Catholic based? That is a major reason for me wanting to homeschool. I want something that will work all aspects of the Catholic faith into our daily lives. I am pretty sure I want something that is fairly well planned out for the first year. I don’t know that I have the time to plan everything out myself.
I am not worried about me being able to teach or that my kids won’t be “socialized.” We do a lot of activities already and are very diverse in our age ranges and people we spend our days with. This is unlikely to change. Also, any advice for finding local homeschooling groups? I am having a hard time finding other homeschoolers in my area to bounce ideas off of. I think that would help me really decide what I want to do.
I apologize if this is in the wrong forum. Thank you in advance for all your responses.
