Me and my husband have decided to home school our 12 year old son. He'll be in 7th grade this year. We plan to home school 7th and 8th grade, then, see how high school goes for him. The public schools have failed to protect him from bullies, and it seems like they done even care. Some of his 6th grade teachers would stare blankly at me during the meetings when I would be telling our son that its the teachers job to help you if you still don't get the subject they are working on. All I got from the teacher was the dumbfounded look as if they didn't know that. Instead of agreeing and encouraging him to come to them for help. We've had it.

We are in complete agreement for starting home schooling. But now, I feel lost. One day I'm relaxed, the next I'm all frazzled. I absolutely have no clue where to start. Buying books- answer books, student books, what he needs to learn for what subject. Where to buy stuff, how much does everything he needs cost? I see on different sites that, subject books and everything can run to like 200 dollars, for ONE subject. What!?!?!? Then another online school has for ONE subject with an online teacher helping can cost upwards of 600 dollars.
Then I read that I shouldn't fill out the home schooling form until the 3rd Friday of September.
So, yes, I'm lost. Some words of wisdom would be very helpful. Thanks!!!
