Homeschooling

Homeschooling

Does anyone here homeschool.. How does it go, do you use an online program or books.

Have you ever heard of "Life of Fred" or LOF.

I homeschooled for years and I just got my Master's in Teaching from USC. There are so many different options out there for you to choose from and you just need to pick the one the one that best suits your lifestyle and your child's learning needs. I'm sorry for the vague answer, but I don't want to recommend something that would be wrong for you guys. However, I do support homeschooling 100% and if I can be of any help, let me know!

I homeschooled my daughter. We opted for all online schooling. I researched several and switched schools after her first year. I just homeschooled for her high school years (grades 9-12). She loved it. She could interact with other students. If she had trouble with anything she could email the teacher. If several students had trouble in the same areas the teacher would skype with the students. It was like a classroom. My daughter graduated early. She is now about to graduate college. The only hard part for her was transitioning from a self paced study to a regular classroom pace. She adjusted really well though.

Homeschooling is a commitment for the entire family. You need to have backup from you partner or spouse if they are in her life. Why? Because younwill get flack from your family, friends and her current school. Stick to your convictions. Homeschooling was a wonderful experience for me Andy two daughters. We went from grade to to Sophomore year in HS. We got to take field trips, do art classes, extended classes like Potatoe Chip science, History through Rock and Roll. Of course being Fisneu pass holders field trips there involved using day. All the riders be musical, spent ti.e on Maim Street for the rag time piano and the barbershop quartet. Etc. I went with a private school w home studies, they took care of student records and state filing

Thank you both.. @A MyFibroTeam Member and @A MyFibroTeam Member. My daughter is going into 5th next year and is NOT ready for it. I worked with her a lot before she started school and did extremely well she knew counting and some spelling and some additionand loved science then kindergarten she started complaning it was boring. 1st grade was horrible she picked at her clother drew on her self all bordem.. The teacher decided I did to much with desi and she was overwhelmed..her grades went down.. Then 2nd was at another school where they felt she knew the info but was insecure, but she did good. Back at the other school for 3rd and it was going down till again the teacher said she might have a memory problem, this girl can remember so that's not the problem, well she didn't do to well but passed fine this year she fails everything.. When I go over things with her she does ok but test time she ranges from a 7-high 60's it's shocking.. She gets loads and loads of aditions support that isn't really working.. Its something I toss and turn over a lot

Yes two of my girlfriends homeschool their kids. One does an online program the other does a semi unschooling method. I wonder because for years I've wanted to homeschool my daughter but have so much guilt that due to the constant up and down I feel like I could fail her. I want to see if anyone that deals with this thing if they have had any success homeschooling or problems..
