    How many here homeschool their kids and what methods do you use?  What are your biggest challenges?

    I use the Robinson Self-teaching Cirriculmn.  My biggest challange was teaching my oldest how to read since the way his brain processes the written word was so different from the way my brain does.

      I hear you there!  When one processes things differently, it can be very hard to understand how the person thinks things through.  Being a high functioning autistic woman myself, I can get pretty confusing sometimes lol!

    I used to homeschool my children. Our biggest challenge was lack of opportunities to socialize once they reached junior high, as many children in our homeschool group went to a local private school.

      Great answer!  I too wonder if we will run into the same issues when the kids get bigger.  This seems to be a challenge at times, especially when various age group activities may be further away from you.

    My mother homeschooled her three children. Her challenges were organization, getting the kids to do their homework, working through the college/graduation process, and getting cars for the kids so they can drive themselves to classes. But the main problem was organization and inconsistancy.
    For the younger age, she worked with them or purchased Abeka books or video lessons. Once the children reached middle school, they started taking classes outside of the home with other homeschoolers. Science, math, government, etc. This is the starting point for the children to be out on their own and learning responsibility for their classes. By high school, they can do their classes just like a college student and usually graduate early and/or do dual credit.
    Another challenge consisted of the childrens different learning types. One has dyslexia, another with ADHD, the oldest with ADD. Each learns differently and the mother should keep all of this in mind while teaching.

      I also believe my challenges are organization and trying to stay more consistant!  Getting kids to work on things is a huge challenge as well.  Especially with special needs kids, keeping their attention is even more challenging.  Thank you!
