Overview

Millions of people do home schooling and the numbers grow every day. The world has become a bit of a scary place these days, and not all of us are comfortable with sending our baby out into that world alone. Consider the following:

• National Studies show that 49 percent of schools report some type of crime involving theft, vandalism or physical threats.
• There are 100 times more guns in the hands of American schoolchildren than is reported.
• Students age 12 to 18 were victims of 2.7 million total crimes while at school.
• Over 3,000 students were expelled from school in the year 2000 for bringing a firearm to school.

All I have to do is mention Columbine, Colorado, and you know what school violence can do. The statistics are only rising, and the perpetrators are getting younger and younger. I remember not too long ago hearing on the news about a first grader who had a handgun in his locker and threatened to kill a fellow student if he didn’t do what he said. It’s shocking and very, very scary for everyone, but especially for you, the parent.

What are equally as disturbing are the test scores that our children are getting on standardized tests. No child left behind provided for testing all children to determine their academic performance and insure that all were getting a quality education. The results have been disappointing. In math, our students are performing at just 3% of the world average for the same age students. In English, that percentage jumps a little, but only to 7%. Children in other countries are getting better educations than our own kids, and that will eventually hurt us globally.

These are just two reasons people cite for choosing to homeschool their children. In fact, the top five reasons given, in order are:

• God and religion taught along with academics
• Avoiding school violence
• Providing a better education
• Allowing the child to work at his or her own pace
• Family convenience

It’s a trend that’s becoming more and more popular – mainly because it does seem to produce highly educated adults in the long run. But is homeschooling right for you? Perhaps it is! You want the best for your child – right? Who knows them better than you do? You were their first teacher after all. Why shouldn’t you continue as their teacher? If it’s financially possible for you to stay home and school your children and you want to, there’s no reason you shouldn’t. So where do you start?

This eBook will guide you toward making the decision to homeschool, what you’ll need to know before you start, and so much more! Look at the following:

• De-Schooling your child
• Setting up your home for a school area
• Choosing a curriculum
• Setting a homeschool schedule

And so much more! A lot of parents would love to homeschool, but they’re afraid they just don’t have the abilities. That’s where we come in! Even if you have no college experience and just a high school diploma, you can still teach your child in the privacy and safety of your own home. Hundreds of people have done it. In fact, most homeschooling parents actually DO NOT have a college degree of any type – and their children are flourishing.

Don’t give up on the dream, though. You can get all the information you need and never have to leave your home! This eBook will give you what you need to know.
