These posts all exist, but we’ve moved from Parents.com (we were under the Parents umbrella for 3 years)… and I don’t have the links up and running! 🙂 Hope to get them together sometime soon! You can also use the SEARCH button to look for any of the post titles below.
I frequently get asked, “How do I get started homeschooling?” This past summer I wrote a very long series to try to answer some of the questions that might come up–including the baffling dilemma… “How do I know *what* to teach the kids?” and “How do I find homeschool curriculums?” I have tried to gather all these posts and link them in one place so you can pick and choose the topics/questions you might have. If you have any other questions I might not have addressed in this series, feel free to leave me a note over on our Homeschool Den Facebook page and I’ll try to answer them.
