Why Home School Your Kids by Sandy Hall

The thought of homeschooling your children may seem quite overwhelming at first. There are so many questions going through your head. Where do I get curriculum, what curriculum should I use, can I really do this, and of course what about socialization? Let me put your mind at ease. It's not as difficult as it looks.
Relax and have fun. The reason you are homeschooling is to enjoy the time spent with your children and to learn together. Here is something you might want to think about. In the typical school, one teacher spends 6-7 hours teaching 20 children. This is equivalent to one on one tutoring for 1-2 hours a day. Learning is a lot easier in a relaxed atmosphere with this type of one on one attention.
Start talking to people you know who already homeschool their children. They will have plenty of good advice to get you started. If you don't know any homeschoolers then try to find a homeschool support group in your area. Many churches also have organized homeschool support groups.
Next you should find out about the homeschooling laws in your state. Different states have different requirements. Some states have testing requirements. Some have specific curriculum requirements. State support groups generally have a summary of their state laws. Check the listings on our State Homeschool Support Information page or ask a local support group.

He looked hurt at Stonekits harsh words but then payed attention to what the queen said. Goldenkit looked back and saw his 'tail.' His eyes grew wild and he pounced on it. A stab of pain shot throgh him as his claws sunk into his tail.
