Although you may be tempted to skip on down to the more “practical” steps, you will gain greater benefit by taking the time to explore homeschooling in a more philosophical sense. It is very important to know why you are making this decision. Homeschooling is a wonderful journey, but there probably will be difficult days. On those days, you will need to be confident that you made a sound, informed decision.
Begin your journey by working through your philosophy of education and the reasons you are choosing home education. The Vision section of the CHEC Guidebook, A Comprehensive Guide to Home Education, is a great place to start. (Available through the CHEC Store.)
