A few years ago I decided to take the mountains of knowledge I had gained over time while homeschooling my children and share it with other people. I was homeschooled for a while myself, and I helped with my younger siblings, then after a lot of consideration, and quite a bit of aggravation from my children’s school, I decided to pull my children out and homeschool.
It isn’t an easy process, there is work that has to be done, but it isn’t terribly hard either and can be done with at least a minimal amount of want and effort. The one place where it really starts getting difficult is when you go looking for resources. Believe it or not, there is a huge, (nearly unlimited), amount of homeschool resources out there for everything from absolute beginners to mega homeschooling

Extended details on the story above:
To be perfectly honest, it was a huge convenience on all of us in many ways, because my kid’s original school closed and they had to move to another one in an entirely different town. It was almost a 30 minute drive, and we had to do it every morning.
We loved the old school, it was a really nice and fun environment, but the new one was like stepping into enemy territory. Basically, the town next to us needed a new school, but didn’t have enough students to qualify for a new one, I suppose “school falling down around us” just doesn’t cut it. So, the school district decided that the best thing to do would be to merge our two schools, that way they could get that new one built. We parents did not want this merge, and tried to fight it, but it was completely useless.
The new school went up, in the other town of course, since they were the ones that actually needed it, and we all went from having a five minute commute to our humble little school where everyone knew and liked one another, to a 25-30 minute drive to the other town’s new school, where we were clearly not wanted. Yeah, long story short, or well, shorter, I suppose, it was tense and not a lot of fun. The teachers even treated the kids from our district different because our Principal got the main Principal title and theirs got to be her assistant. If they didn’t like us before, they hated us after that announcement.
My youngest son, who hadn’t gotten the chance to attend the original school, was bullied in the new one by, you guessed it, kids from the other school, and when he went and told his teachers, they had the nerve to tell him to stay away from those kids and hang out with bigger kids. I’m pretty sure the top of my scalp boiled and popped a little bit when I heard that one. My son, only 5 years old at the time, wanted to slide and play in the playground like a normal child, and these two older boys came over and wouldn’t let him play. Then, not only were they mean and rude, but they then choked him, right there on the top of the slide. So, the decision was made to take them out and homeschool them ourselves.
