Your approach to education

Realize that you care more about your child and their future than anyone else. Therefore, it is you who are most suitable for the role of teacher for your child. Home education is a big responsibility, but if you fit it to your family's lifestyle, it will work regardless of your education and experience. You are not required to give up your personal interests - you can lead a normal life outside of the time allocated for training.
While it's still fairly easy to teach an elementary school program, you may find it difficult to build confidence when it comes to a high school program. But it's doable and people do it. Just know what you are learning!
Make a study plan. The sheer volume of material and methods available can overwhelm a beginner. It's easy to forget how useful all this is! Figuring out your approach will be the first step in limiting everything. There are many resources and check this article that can help you navigate through the maze of ideas. Research, read and plan what you want to give and how you want to give it.
Libraries and bookstores have books on homeschooling methods, other people's experiences, and proven curricula.
The Internet offers an endless source of information: basics on a variety of subjects, method articles, support groups, and public school courses. It even has lessons in most subjects from teachers, other homeschoolers, and even TV stations.
Authentic classical education includes the teaching of reading, thinking and speaking as separate skills. However, anti-school advocates, while agreeing with classical educational systems, usually have a wide range of resources that give children experience, but not a formal curriculum. All in your hands.
You should touch art, science (biology, physics, chemistry), languages, music, mathematics, history and geography for beginners.
Look for local support. You can find local groups that meet all over the place, organizations that hold periodic seminars or conventions, or even online groups that share experiences and resources. Many groups arrange joint lessons - under the guidance of parents - in a large number of subjects. If you start to feel overwhelmed, frustrated, or alone in a family education, support groups can give you advice or simply share the experience of parents who are not alone.
They are also an invaluable source of advice on how to comply with all schooling laws in your area. If you have questions, then you should wrap up in this group. And your child may meet other children studying at home.
 
Prepare resources. Homeschooling resources may vary from method to method. You can order textbooks, course kits, and online learning tools, or plans from resource sales. As cheaper alternatives, many parents use libraries, bookstores, exchange rates, thrift stores, and garage sales.
