I’m not sure what led you to this decision to educate your child at home but I am pretty sure of one thing – you want to do your best. You want to give this thing your all and provide your child with the best possible learning experience.
Homeschooling is not for the faint of heart – there will be challenges that arise and you will need some guidance along the way.

When you have these questions answered, you will find much joy in your homeschool.
