...at least that's how I feel anyway. I've always thought about homeschooling but even though I work from home, I'm a very busy person and I'm just not sure I can swing it. Granted we're talking three preschool age children, so I don't imagine I would have to spend that much time per day schooling, right? This is a temporary thing for me because once they are kindergarten aged they will go to public school like my oldest does. That's the plan at least. I had the twins enrolled for preschool next year at a free preschool but then they called and said they didn't get as much grant money as they thought they would get so they had to cut one class -- the class we were to be in. I can't afford to send two, nevermind three, kids to preschool. I can't even afford to send one to preschool to be honest. So I'm pretty worried about how things will go this next year. I think Homeschooling would be fun and incredibly rewarding, but I'm just not sure I can do it... I'm bipolar, which thankfully is well managed with medication, but I have VERY little patience. So I'm afraid I won't be patient enough for them. Plus, homeschooling three preschoolers my very first time trying this is very daunting to say the least. So could any of you offer any advice or perhaps some resources on where to get started? I've read a TON of information online and several books on the subject but I still feel lost on what my first steps are. What skills does a preschooler need to learn? What are some cost-effective ways I can teach my children. And most importantly, how do I keep from trying to re-create a classroom? I sort of half-a$$ed tried last summer but it was too school-ish and I didn't like it at all. I would like to do unschooling but I'm REALLY lost on how to make that work.... So yes, please give me all the advice you can muster, because I'm going to need it!!! LOL And, thanks in advance!!!!
