I have 5 kids. 3 are in grade school and I would like to start homeschooling this year. This is very new to me. I've been researching the past month or so and I really would like to try to do this.
One of my concerns is are letting the school know that we're doing this. I have been reading up on Ohio laws. Anyone in Ohio who would be willing to talk to me - let me know! My kids are in a great school. We don't have many complaints. I just think too much time is spent watching movies, eating snacks, having parties, learning things that are nonessential, etc. The behaviors they are learning don't make me very happy either.
I don't think I'd want to start with boxed curriculum, but I'm open to different ideas. I'm just afraid I won't be organized enough starting out, and it will be a big mess. I know it'll take time to get it right. I am excited to read the other posts on here and learn from all of you.
