    Default Homeschoolers - your advice/experience/views please?

    Hi all - this is my first post here. I'm looking for feedback from families that homeschool their child/ren. Could you give me your thoughts/experiences/honest opinions? Do you love homeschooling? Would anyone like to give it up? Is it as hard as I think it would be? Best bits/worst bits? Many thanks in advance - I am seriously considering it for my grade 3 child and my soon-to-be prep child.

    We're at the same place as you and similar ages.

    Strongly recommend you chech out HEN (Home Education Network) and there are heaps of groups on Facebook sedicated to various forms of home schooling. You'll get much more feedback there from experienced people than you will here.

    There are some thathome school here but the subject does not come up all tha often from whatbI have seen

    Thanks DaveTTC - I really appreciate your advice. I'm going to head straight over to have a look at that link. You aren't in Brisbane by any chance, are you? Thanks again.

    I've been homeschooling since mid last year. We are unschooling. We don't use carriculums, we don't force our kids to sit at a table all day doing book work. We are natural learners.
    I won't say it's always cruisey. We hsve our bad days but the good ones make up for it.
    If you love being around your kids for the most part then go ahead with it. It's good to do some deschooling, not just for the child's sake but for yours as well.
    Be prepared for negative comments,
    Get to know and meet any home/unschoolers in your local area and surrounds.
    If you had of told me I would be homeschooling my kids only a few years ago I would of laughed. I didn't really understand what homeschooler was, but after reading, studying etc getting to know others who homedchool I found different styles/methods that work for us. We started off relaxed homeschooling at first but after a few months decided unschooling worked best. My girls (9 and 11) go to a co-op school two days a week (their choice).
