Questions
 
Hi! I am new to the board. I frequent TTC #1 and so it may seen strange that I am here. My DH and I are TTC #1 (Duh lol) but I am trying to kinda decide what I want to do as my child(ren) grow up. We want between 2 and 4 kids in the long run and I think I want to home school.

Sorry I am writing a book.

My MIL home schooled my niece for one year when preschool didn't work out for her but now is going to put her is PS (a better one then she was in, hopefully it helps) where she will start 1st grade meaning she got through two grades in one year and I personally think that she could go to second if it wasn't for her behavior problems.

I want to be a SAHM so I think that homeschooling would be a great way to have my kids at home with me. Basically what I am asking is; How do I get info about homeschooling to know I am doing it all right so that my kids wont eventually have problems getting into college? I am in Texas if that helps.

Texas is a super easy state. Read about homeschooling. Check out books from the library. Homeschoolers get into college just as easily as children who are educated other ways. Even unschoolers who use no curriculum and learn through life get into college no problem :)

Hello! Stick around with us here. :)

Yea, Texas is super easy, your very blessed. I have never seen a homeschool graduate refused a place in college if they so chose to go that route.

Hey thanks for letting me know that. I don't know now if its going to happen know tho. I tried to talk to my DH about it and he didn't really go for it. He is worried that if we don't send our kids to punlic school they won't get the same oppertunities as far as sports and friends etc. as we did. I don't know how to handle it cause I really thought that he would be ok with it and I think that its something I really want to do. Any Advice?

I don't know about where you are but in lots of placed homeschoolers are allowed to participate in public school sports. You may have to jump through a few hoops to do it but it may be possible. There is also the YMCA, parks and recreation, etc for sports opportunities. Here in NC, well the area I am in, even has a homeschool sports league. They offer soccler, volleyball, etc and compete with kids from other counties, etc.

As for friends, well you have tons of time for extra-curriculars where they can make plenty of friends. Then there is co-op, the neighborhood kids, etc. I wondered about my kids in the beginning too but we have so many friends now that it is hard to keep up with them all. :) Tell him the statistics for homeschooling are rising every year. He would be surprised at how many kids their are out there receiving a home education.
