Teach Your Child at Home  -  Homeschooling Groups

There are increasingly more and more parents that take the option to teach your child at home because they do not trust in every part of their local schools curriculum. But if you teach your child at home you may get to feel a little isolated and alone. Homeschooling your child is fun and very rewarding but you will lack that adult company that is needed for most on a day to day basis.

There are support groups for you if you decide to teach your child at home which are geared to helping you through the homeschooling system. There are various different types of these groups like support for children, support for the parents ( the teachers ) and there is something called 'co-ops support groups' or 'co-operative teaching support groups'. The co-ops support groups offer a place where your children and you can pick up new educational ideas.

Sometimes it is very difficult to find out where these homeschooling support groups are in your local community. Your best bet would be to get in front of a computer and do a search for 'homeschools' or 'teach your child at home' and then your local county. The results should point to the closest support group to your county.

If this computer search does not work out for you then another suggestion is to visit your local library. Local libraries often have a list of local parents who are homeschooling and they will also have a list of any support groups in town or your local area. If you are unlucky enough to be in an area where there are no visible support groups then you should think about starting your own - you were competent enough to teach your child at home so you should be competent enough to start a successful and helpful support group.

If you want to start your own 'teach your child at home' support group or alternatively a 'homeschooling' support group then you should think about putting up an ad or two in the local newspaper and handing out some home-made flyers in your local supermarket. If you do this you will be surprised at how quickly you build up a network of parents in a similar situation to you.

If you do decide to teach your child at home remember the lack of adult contact that we mentioned here. Whilst homeschooling lessons bring you and your child closer together they may well cause a little isolation as well.
