I started writing this blog to figure out if I should homeschool or not.

It took me only about a month of blogging to realize that there is overwhelming agreement in the education reform movement that a customized education is best for kids.

The issue with homeschooling is not whether it’s best for kids. The issue is whether or not parents can handle doing it.

I homeschool because it seemed to me that it was like breastfeeding: Of course it’s the best thing to do for the kids, it’s just difficult. So I told myself that even though I had no idea what I was doing, it’s clear to me that even starting with no idea what I’m doing is better than putting the kids in school.

Now I have been homeschooling for three years. I don’t have all of the answers figured out, but I have learned a lot. Everything I have learned about homeschooling is documented on this blog. This guide is broken down into sections to help you find the answers you might be looking for.

Every family can successfully homeschool their children. The key is finding a path that works for your life.
