It depends on where you live. There are different laws per country and state. Start by google searching "homeschool (you state)"

This is such a great vid as I really hate school Iv got dyslexic and my school doesn’t help me and I find it really hard and hate that I’m always in the same English class just because the teacher is the one who deals with dyslexia kids and I’m always at the bottom my mum won’t homeschool me so I’m trying to do it myself while still going to school until I can find away to do it

You have your brain, no one can look into your brain, except you and someone who knows how to do it. Think what good you can think for your own good whenever you are. Be positive and Happy. Make it a habit to be happy.

Be happy wherever you are, and if you need some help ask. Tell what is the problem? Sort it out reasonably

#1 free resource in my opinion is the MEP math website. One of the best math curriculum's out there, easily on the same level as Singapore and Math Mammoth, and all it costs you is paper and ink.
MomZest (1 year ago)
Ambleside is a great resource- and of course all these other resources are staples for us! Thank you for sharing!
Lluvia Hernandez (1 year ago)
And thank you for sharing all you've shared. I've been doing research of my own for a while and I really appreciate you moms who share your stories because they truly help us moms who are new at this! So thank you!
Lluvia Hernandez (1 year ago)
Okay! Thank you very much!

Hi there! Just wondering if you had or have to take any special classes or have to have some kind of certificate in order to homeschool on your own like you do.
Heather Torres (1 year ago)
Hi. Welcome! In my state (and in almost alll states) you do not have to have any certification or training to homeschool your kiddos. With that said, I have spent years researching how to educate my kiddos at home and have found some great resources in the area of guidance for this journey. We do follow our state standards for what they legally require we learn and then I use some great resources to help guide me through the day to day of the lessons we are learning.

My daughter just turned one but I've been thinking about homeschooling, I'm new to your channel so hi 👋🏼
Ana Soto (1 year ago)
Heather Torres thanks, yes so true!
Heather Torres (1 year ago)
Welcome! It's never too early to start researching. Remember, whatever schooling option you decide to do, you are their first educator. :)

I LOOOOOOVE COAH! Been using her planners and following her for six years. Great resources. I didn't realize how in-depth some of them went. Thanks!
Heather Torres (1 year ago)
I totally agree! She is the best :)
McKenzie (1 year ago)
We are just starting out and really in the planning stages since my son is still young. I'm so glad I found your channel. So helpful.
Heather Torres (1 year ago)
Thanks for watching! ;)
Kelly Genchi (1 year ago)
Hi Heather, I always find your videos totally informative. In a previous video, you mentioned that you homeschool year round. I am interested in learning more about how that works. Do you school 6 weeks on and take 1 week off throughout the entire year?
Heather Torres (1 year ago)
Kelly Genchi (1 year ago)
This definitely helps! Looking forward to the year round homeschool video!!
Heather Torres (1 year ago)
Hi Kelly. Thanks for watching. Yes, that's basically what we do. We do also reserve a few weeks a year as "extra" weeks. These are free weeks to plug in throughout the year when we need them. This helps if we have a sick week, a relative in town unexpected, or just need one more week added on to a week off to really enjoy life. Because we do year-round we make school a part of our lifestyle. My kids (and who am I kidding, me too) do much better with routine. Taking a big chunk of time off in the summer just doesn't work for us. We do however switch up what the different terms are like. For example, we are in December right now and it is crazy busy all month. So we aren't doing any structured history and we are doing language arts review the entire month. I'm going to make a video about year-round homeschool in the future but I hope this helps for now.

Heather Torres oh I totally agree! Having numerous options can be both a blessing and a curse! 😊
Heather Torres (1 year ago)
There are soooo many homeschool resources online that sometimes it can get really overwhelming. I'm grateful for all the options but sometimes I can get paralyzed by the amount of choices.
Yuki Tessitore-Vu (1 year ago)
Thank you so much, Heather! I'm learning a lot from you and really enjoy your videos! I've been following Confessions of a Homeschooler and 1+1+1= 1 for awhile now, so it's awesome to know that you recommend them as well.

Great video, Heather. We've used several of those sights over the years. I love Erica's videos on YT- they are so helpful!
Heather Torres (1 year ago)
Isn't she amazing! :) I love her. In my mind dreams I'm as organized and polished as she is but in reality I'm much simpler and free flowing. She has such great resources and really gave me the confidence to know that with some prep and a lot of love, you can really make homeschooling fun!
