    Advice for students:

    Before you start, do some research. Know your state laws. Look into all your options. Co-ops, dual enrollment, single online courses, online schools etc. The more you know, the stronger you are. Read some curriculum reviews. Go to homeschooling forums and be a fly on the wall. Read, read, read. -Evaluate your financial situation. What types of extras can you afford. People often don't include these when they talk about the costs, but I think it's important you do. It's not like you wouldn't pay for these if your kids were in school, but unlike school, pretty much everything has a price tag. Some people can afford martial arts, chorus, field trips, private music classes, all at once. A lot can't. By doing that, you'll find options that may cost less. And remember, anything other than homeschooling only activities are open to all. - There are LOTS of options for socialization. Time outside the family allows older kids the opportunity to develop their own relationships and make good choices. Those opportunities don't knock at your door. Help your kids find them. - Once you start, be flexible. That is be flexible with curriculum, schedule, style etc. Don't give up because you need to change things up. We all make changes, and it is a good thing. Don't be a follower. Just because Mrs. Smith in your homeschooling group loves a certain style or curriculum, doesn't mean it's best for your kids. If at a later point, school seems again like the right choice, it doesn't mean you failed. -Give your child some say. Depending on your child's age, how much is variable. When you're on homeschooling decisions (curriculum/style etc) make this about their needs, not yours. See the point above about being flexible. -Grow thick skin. People are going to question your decision to homeschool. Homeschooling parents may judge how you homeschool. If you're going to homeschool, it's important to learn to tune it out. Otherwise it's easy to be angry and defensive: a waste of energy. - Watch your ego as you go along. It's easy to be complacent and to think all schooled kids are less educated, less socialized, less polite etc. If that were true, universities wouldn't be filled with all types of students. Ditto with jobs. Complacency leads to low levels of achievement. Judge your kids successes on their accomplishments, not by comparison. - Last: Make time for yourself. Kids need to be a part of the family, not the driving force. If we indulge them and forfeit our every need, it leads to some pretty self-centered kids. Aren't we seeing that now in society? That time could be leaving the kids with dad and going to the coffee shop. Or get to the gym a few times a week. Just make yourself some time. It's good for kids to see mommy has a life. Having a life makes mommy a happier person and role model.
