    Do I have to go to work today & teach

    I love homeschooling my kids!

    As I see school closings due to weather, it is a relief that we don't have to worry about that. We make our own schedule and don't have to fit our lives around a school calendar!

    I sent my son back to school

    for two years and they completely failed him. He went from ending 6th grade in pre algebra to starting 9th grade relearning the basics. Thanks a lot for not challenging my son. If you want children taught right, sometimes you have to do it yourself.

    I Homeschool My Son

    I live in a small town and our public school was inadequate for my son's special needs. I have a Bachelor's in Elementary/ Special Education so I decided to teach him myself.

    I'm Going to Homeschool

    I have decided to homeschool my son starting this fall.  I am so sick of the public school drama: teachers on power-trips, wasted school days, tons of homework, indoctrination, and the list goes on.... I would love advice from those already educating their children.
