New to this so apologies.

My DD is not ready for starting school yet but I am considering home education when she is. I don't know anyone who has home educated and would love to hear from anyone who has. It would be great to see what is involved. I like the idea, but unsure about the reality... time, cost, sanity?
Thanks in advance smile

It is a lovely life. It is what humans were built to do. It builds close relationships and is less stressful than school.
Cost and time is up to you. Two hours a day of formal work, one to one, is plenty. Sanity? Well our house is much calmer now we homeschool.
