What if Your Kids Want to Go to Public School?
My article "What If Your Kids Want to Go to Public School?" was recently published by Bizymoms.com, and it got quite a response!  I had an interesting email conversation with Julieanne that I wanted to share, because I thought others might enjoy the follow-up articles I suggested.  Thank you, Julieanne, for giving me permission to share your comments. Lee,Thank you so much!   I read your article tonight called, "What If Your Kids Want to Go to...

New Homeschooler Jitters

New Homeschooler Jitters
The first year of homeschooling is such an adventure!  It's hard to balance school stuff that matters (like reading, writing, and math) against the school stuff that simply isn't necessary when you are homeschooling (desks, tests, and watching the clock.)

Alternative Education = Less Control

Alternative Education = Less Control
Whenever you become involved in state sponsored Alternative Education, you have less control than when you are homeschooling independently.  In fact, any classroom setting (public school, private school, alternative education, and even co-op classes) give you less control and flexibility than homeschooling independently.

Homeschooling and Housekeeping

Homeschooling and Housekeeping
