What is Homeschool?
Homeschool is when you decide to educate your child yourself outside of a public or private school system.
You decide what you want your child to learn and you create a curriculum.
It’s fun to gather the books and learning toys needed to work with your child.
Many parents decide to purchase a curriculum as well.
There are many resources once you decide what you want your child to learn.
How will our lives change?
Finances are a big part of this lifestyle change.
You and your partner must sit down to see how much is needed to run the household.
Consider what you can cut out or cut back on.
Also consider the new cost of purchasing materials for Homeschooling.
Single parents are still able to Homeschool.
Remember you decide your Homeschool terms.
It is perfectly ok to teach your children when you come home from work or only on certain days.
Most states have a generous requirement for days you must register as learning days.

Will Homeschool education be enough?
Many Homeschool children are very well rounded and educated. If you have your sights set on a certain career path or university reach out to them!
They will be delighted to tell you what requirements to focus on.
There is also a good chance you are not the first parent to contact them with such a question.
Who can help me?

The first suggestion is to join a Facebook group for Homeschooling parents.
