No. A few reasons,

1. I dont think im equipped to educate my children to their full potential
2. We need 2 incomes, I need to work
3. In the state we live in (in Australia) you cannot go to university without a school completed VCE (years 11 and 12) unless you are a mature aged student.

There would not be one single benefit to me homeschooling my children, it would 100% hinder them.


Sorry, I ran with it there, haha.

Maybe ask ont he homeschooling board if you dont get many responses here?

Us too, although I'm not sure how much help I'd be as this is our first year.

Just wondering I anyon uses My Father's World.
I've been looking at it, and it is quite appealing.
I've been making my own curric for years, but feel I need to go back to something more structured. I like that I can do my middle 3 together, essentially.
Its a bit spendy though, so I was looking for some feedback.

I make up my own stuff, too except for math. I have heard great things about mfw, though. Can you get it used?

You could try the homeschooling board...I know that MFW is one that quite a few on there have used.

We very well may be joining the homeschool ranks next fall. It depends on if my kids get into this charter school I applied for. I like the looks of Sonlight myself.
