If you have read and followed the previous 6 steps, you should be prepared to home school. Now all you have to do is begin.
A few things to remember:
- Enjoy your students and the opportunity to home school.
- Be flexible. If something is not working, be willing to try something new.
- Keep realistic expectations. Comparison to the public school system or other home schoolers will leave you frustrated. Set educational goals that fit the needs of your children.
- Know you are not alone. Staying connected with other home schoolers will provide information, support, and encouragement during difficult times.
