In the researching stages of my homeschooling journey I was definitely overwhelmed with the abundance of blog posts and information on how to homeschool out there in the web. Although most of the blog posts and online info contained very helpful information, it was very confusing because everyone seemed to have a different way of doing things. I was already dealing with a lot going into homeschooling, the last thing I needed what to make the process harder on myself and the boys with confusing information. I decided to disregard all that I had read over the last 2 months and just start fresh by going off of two websites that I stumbled upon after a Google search. I want to share with you the websites that saved my sanity by quieting down the noise of all the online info I’d read with their straight to the point information. HSLDA.org does a great job of explaining Texas laws regarding homeschool as well as providing us parents with an array of support groups, chats & legal advice. They even have their entire website in Spanish should you need it translated. If you become a member, you get free legal assistance, should you ever require it. Better safe than sorry right? To be honest, I didn’t become a member immediately, I actually JUST started my membership in January of this year, we weren’t sure if homeschool was going to be a permanent thing but now that we’ve made up our minds, I decided to formally become a member. The second website I used in withdrawing my kids from public school was the Texas Homeschool Coalition website. They have withdrawal letter templates you can use along with tons of free resources and information on legally homeschooling. Fortunately the state of Texas is not super strict on their homeschool laws which made the process to homeschool and transition from public school much easier. I hope this information is helpful in your research stage & that you’re able to begin your journey with all the unnecessary stress and overwhelm.
