In thinking of homeschooling my children next year bc I just don't feel it's safe to send kids to school now days. I don't know how to go about it or how hard it is. If anyone can share any info about homeschooling I'd really appreciate it.

Your blessed to live where you live. We have a very large homeschool organization right there in Corinth called Eagle Homeschool.

My nambe in Gabbai, I'm one of the workers in it's homeschool lending library. You can go to their website to get more information at:

www.eaglehomeschool.com

You can also go to the link that has the newletter and can contact any number of the leaders. My contact information is on the newsletter with the name Gabbai.

We hold enrichment classes 2 times a year (fall and spring)for an nominal fee, and we have many field trips, sports and other activities to choose from.

Feel free to contact anyone of them. We start classes tomorrow if you'd like to view our organization. We hold our classes Tuesdays from 12:00 - 3:00 PM.

We have a large lending library to borrow books from. It's a first come first serve basis and is based also on availability. We also keep several catalogs of curriculums to choose from. I'll be upstairs in the lending library. There are several knowledgeable parents that can offer advice and direction on whether or not to homeschool.

We are a christian based organization and most if not all feel that to homeschool a child is a decision led by GOD.

I hope that helps you. Be blessed and come check out our organization.

Don't do it!! You want your kids to be normal dont you? And have friends? Kids that are home schooled don't have friends because their never around anybody but their family. And as for school not being safe, things could happen in your own home to.

Homeschooled children are very social, just not in the negative sense. They are very well-adjusted and mature. They score higher on tests, seem to have higher moral standards, and are more likely to go to college.

Facts speak for themselves. Public schools are a breeding ground for cliques, bullying, bad behavior, bad influence and exposure to drugs, alcohol and sex.

Most homeschooled families have high moral standards and are instrumental in teaching their children to become GODly, productive and responsible members of society.

I'm not sure where you are getting your "Kids that are home schooled don't have friends" statement from, but our homeschool has over 200 members. They interact with each other throughout the year and have plenty of opportunities to socialize and make friends.

Again to the original poster, check us out and judge for yourself.

I homeschool my child and I make sure she has social involvement. She's not weird or crazy or anything; she is a normal well rounded child. It was our choice to do so because she wasn't being challenged enough in a classroom setting.

I buy my resources from CBD.com and find a lot of really great FREE printouts and assignment boards online.

I'm not going to lie, homeschooling is HARD! It tests your patience as well as your child patience. My advice is do what is in your heart. There is a lot (and I do mean A LOT) that goes into homeschooling. Check out all of your resources before committing to any decision.

I have never come across a person that was homeschooled that was normal! I am not trying to be negative, it's just a fact. I have even had to work with a few new employees and wondered "what's wrong with that guy" only to find out he was homeschool. Another person that was homeschooled was the most angry person I had ever known! As I got older I realized it was because of homeschool he had no idea how to handle problems. Don't do it, unless your child already has problems.

Well, my child is homeschooled and she has so many friends she don't know what to do with them. I am glad we made the decision to teach her at home. She is happy and she is safe and she is learning.

I'm sorry you personally haven't met a "politically correct normal" child. I guess that just makes you above all, doesn't it? I'm SO glad I am down to Earth and I realize I'm not above all.

My child is above the norm of all stigmas attached to homeschool. All her friends are well rounded and social (and they are in either private or public school settings). All because a child is homeschooled does NOT mean there is something wrong with the child or parent; it is a personal choice for us to do best by our child; just as you may have done for your child or children in a PS.

Yes, with a homeschooled child, a parent MUST make sure that social activities outside the home are met. Whether that be cheer, dance, 4H, whatever; the child needs to be socially active in something-anything!

Thank you for sharing your opinion and how you personally think homeschooled children are weird. Others may agree however, I know many more that will not.

I only have one in school as of now and he does have some problems. He has ADHD and bad anxiety. He is very smart and a honor roll student but he has problems with worrying constantly. He cries everyday and begs me not to send him bc he's scared something's going to happen to me or someone in the family

As a retired teacher, I can tell you this. Homeschooled children were FAR above other children that came into my class. I taught high school and that was when many parents had to send their children to public school because the parents were slack on Algebra, Chemistry, Physics and other more difficult classes. I could pretty much tell you within a day or two the children who had been home schooled because they were far more advanced then most children who had been in public schools K - 8.

That's probably because the parents were invested in their child's education. Some parents of public school children don't say a word to their children about school unless something bad has already happened.

The ones I came in contact with were all very smart. I am just saying that they did not have ANY idea how to act with others. They also could not solve everyday problems that we all have in our day to day lives. I guess a way to say it is no common sence, but not just that. I can not explain.

I understand what you're talking about, however, do not judge all homeschool children by the way a few act. It is the parents responsibility to keep their children active and social. What you're talking about isn't the fault of the now adult child; it is the fault of the parent(s) that did not properly socialize their children.

Homeschooled kids can't do cheer 4H or School dance, football, baseball, or any of that bc that's real school things, gymnastics is the only thing really they could do

I'm not sure where you get your information, however, homeschool children have those opportunities to do such activities. The homeschool parents have to pay for the luxuries. Our parent school has a football, volleyball, basketball, and cheer squad as well as art and music. And to add to it, anyone can participate in 4H, but to satisfy you, our parent school also offers 4H as well.
