Hi, my name is Sandra; I homeschool my 8yo son, since Feb of 2008, we use an eclectic style but are primarily child led or unschoolers. We started homeschooling for a variety of reasons... my son has dyslexia and the public school system was failing him... he was being bullied by an older child - daily, which resulted in him coming home (again) daily in tears, calling himself names and wishing that he was dead or had never been born.
Since we have started homeschooling his outlook has improved greatly... his reading is 'at grade level, but his science ability has soared. For some subjects we use the JumpStart program however our lessons are mostly from books, the internet and life.
I look forward to meeting everyone!
