I am in the process of reviewing an on-line course to teach new homeschoolers how to homeschool. This has me wondering how many people who start homeschooling have someone experienced to get advice from. I knew several homeschoolers before I began to homeschool and I went to one friend’s home and she showed me what curricula she was using with her children and told me a little bit about their days. The rest of the research I did myself and joined some on-line homeschool groups. For support, I mainly talked with another friend who was also beginning to homeschool at the same time. I wasn’t exactly learning from her experience, but we did bounce a lot of ideas off of each other.
I would like to do a non-scientific survey. Please leave a comment and tell me if YES – you have or had someone (not on-line) you considered a mentor when you began to homeschool or NO – you began the homeschool journey pretty much on your own.
Thanks everyone for your help.
