Step 6: Incorporate Your Support Network

by Mary Ann Kelley

Involving the important people in your life will give you as the homeschool parent a better chance of success, and will also introduce valuable opportunities for your family. Particularly, involving the grandparents can be beneficial once they understand the benefits of homeschooling. Our Grandparents’ Guide to Homeschooling can help your parents understand how to support your decision to homeschool.

Grandparent Guide to Homeschooling: Supporting Homeschooling

This support network isn’t limited to grandparents, however. The important people in your life – your “village”, so to speak – can offer opportunities for sharing strengths when you incorporate them into your homeschool life. You might find that your sibling who majored in math is willing to tutor algebra, or your friend who works in the media is willing to set up a tour of her workplace. Although it’s important to be respectful of boundaries in your relationships, you may find people in your village willing and able to enrich your children’s learning activities.
