I was wondering how soon you should start or what things you should do to help your child along. Im due July 2 and my husband and I have decided to home school our son. This is because we feel that if they can take God out of school we dont want our son to go there and I dont feel private school is that much better being hows I went to private school most of my life.

I think it depends on your situation. Since you know you'll want to homeschool from the start, I would start as soon as you feel comfortable in an informal way. Have specific times for "tummy play" or for different things that help infants. Then as gets older have specific times for coloring and have the pictures colored be semi educational in nature during that time. And so on. This way the child will already be used to the routine.

This is our first year homeschooling but since my son started preschool at age 2 (he had a speech delay and just this year 'graduated' out of speech therapy in 2nd grade) he already had the routine down. I didn't have to teach him to sit still during school times and stuff. Preschool, Kindy, & 1st grade in B&M (brick & mortar) schools did that.

Hope that helps.

From day one (literally) you can start reading books together. That's very important. You'll "just know" as time moves along what to do next. Meet your child at whatever stage they're ready for. You'll know. ... and each child is different, even in siblings.
