Homeschooling, on the other hand, involves a commitment by both parent and child to embark on a learning adventure that is different from school. Some parents choose "school-in-a-box" (so named because everything you need is sent to you) from a curriculum provider, and basically duplicate the school environment at home. Most homeschooling families, however, gear their studies to their child's abilities and interests, choosing from a wide variety of resources that encourage academic excellence. Initially, this involves a lot of research and observation as you experiment and discover what works best for your son. This process may take a year or more before it is running smoothly. After this initial adjustment, most kids are able to enjoy learning many for the first time! For more information about homeschooling your son, please read Leaving School and Learning at Home. Good luck!
