I have thought about homeschooling since my 5-year-old was born with asthma and low blood sugar. I looked in to it some when deciding on a school for him but because my husband did not want me to I sent him to school. My husband was homeschooled and he hated it. He really wants our children to go to school. Our son is in a wonderful school where his grandmother works. However, we are trying to raise and children in church and I feel like the church is missing in his education. We can not afford to send him to private school and I am not sure I can afford everything I would need to homeschool him so that he is still getting the best education possible. I do not want to make him behind. Can anyone give me any advice?

What state do you live in, If you go to K-12.com you may find that their is a virtual school in your area tha the state will pay for.
I have one in my state. Ohio
They pay for all the books, supplies, and loan you a computer to use along with a printer..
We cant afford to pay for home schooling eather and without this program we would have no choices...
Good Luck, I love home schooling my son....

I live in Kentucky and from everything I have read so far the state provides no assistants.

I moved to a good part of Iowa and was going to put my child into the school district. I am a pastors kid and God is certainly out of the picture! The alternative lifestyle is being taught and other things that are in curriculum so my mom which is a retired school teacher that has a masters in education did all my lesson plans and we turned our den into a schoolroom. My motto is this: When they're that young you need to protect them from other kids that aren't raised the same and teachers that have no patience and curriculum which you wouldn't think is now being taught younger and younger is there. Your spouse may have had a bad experience in homeschooling but that was a different era. There weren't homeschoolers associations back then where there is socialization playdates and activities. He needs to realize this. Theres a lot of dangers in the school system that our babies that young need to be protected from. The formitive years are 0-10 where they get to know themselves and feel confident about themselves. This is not the time to put them in a classroom where they may be made fun of and bullied and mistreated. That does follow them all their days. So if he wants your child in public school, put him in when he's ready for junior high. You'll be glad you waited.

I know for us in some ways it was hard and in some ways I knew it was best for my children. I have 4 and the older 2 were doing well in school but the older they got the more bad things they learned too. I really had intended on going back to work after my youngest one got a little older but I just hate to think about the youngest ones learning all those bad habits. So this past fall I took them all out. Its been great. Its been hard at first because I am not the most organized person but its getting better all the time.
I think in the long run you will have a better and closer child if you can homeschool. We had our oldest in private school also and if we could afford that we would put them all in. Now with just 1 child most private christan type schools have scholarships available. You just have to ask and it helps if you go to church there a little too.
I bet if you ask around at your local library you will find a local homeschool group to get more help from.
Good Luck....... : )

1. Homeschooling does not have to be expensive. I recommend belonging to homeschool support groups in your area. Florida Parent Educators Association is a good start: http://www.fpea.com/

2. Teachers are now the biggest influx into the home school venue. Here is an article about the reasons they are giving: http://ezinearticles.com/?Why-Are-

These things should help you make a decision.
