When we first started homeschooling we knew NO ONE who homeschooled. The way we started homeschooling was a weird one as well. We were at a meeting at the public school regarding our daughter who was having trouble. They requested a meeting with us and wanted her to be there as well. We did not have a problem with her being present. The school psychologist looked at us first thing in the meeting and said, "Your daughter will never learn unless she is medicated." I couldn't believe she would even say that let alone right in front of our daughter. For the next few months all our daughter would do was say, "I can't learn, I don't have any medication." She used this as an excuse for everything. So we gave her a vitamin, telling her it was learning medication. Just as we suspected...she started doing well. We called for another meeting with the same people and told them about what was had happened. The same lady said to us, "If you think you can teacher her better than us then go ahead!" Well FINE we will. After leaving the meeting it hit us...mainly me....what did we just do???
There began our home schooling journey. That same day we decided to go visit our other children in their class rooms. We went to our son's classroom and he was having a great day. What we saw next in our middle daughter's class room both broke my heart and confirmed to us what we had to do. Our daughter Hannah was sitting in the corner with toys. The rest of the children were at their desks doing work. We asked if Hannah had been bad...they said, "No this is where we always put her, we don't know how to deal with her." OH MY!!!! Our daughter has Auditory Processing Disorder and has trouble in noisy situations.
I went home very angry for what we saw and had to deal with. So at that moment began my quest for how to homeschool. A google search brought us to The Old Schoolhouse Magazine. We immediately got a subscription. That first year we did not use any curriculum. We used the magazine and the internet. This is the best homeschooling magazine around!
