Are you wondering how to get started homeschooling?

You are not alone! I recently received the following questions from readers of Homeschooling-ideas.

    I am VERY new to homeschool. In fact we are only into our third week and I have to admit the start is a bit overwhelming.

    I'm looking for guidance from the ones who have gone before me...

And the question;

    "How do you undo damage done by a public school and re-ignite the children's love for learning?"

I remember well when I began to homeschool. It is a scary time. Especially if you feel your children are switched off from learning. You never feel quite sure you are doing it properly! So I have written some tips on things I wish I had known.

  • How to Homeschool your Child.
  • Homeschooling for Beginners - things I wish I had known.

  • FAQ on How to Home School.

  • I have also asked my readers to help out and tell me what they wish they had known when they first started to homeschool :
