Tonight starts a new year, but for those of us who follow the traditional school calendar, the year is halfway over. Now's a great time to stop and reassess how things have been working for you and your family. Have you been satisfied with the materials and resources you've been using? Is your schedule too hectic or too sedate?
If you are thinking about a change in direction, you might want to start browsing through other homeschooling resources and teaching techniques for inspiration.
Or resolve to broaden your circle of homeschooling families, and find supportive people who can give you first-hand advice on new strategies to try. In addition to homeschoolers in your local area, you can talk to other homeschooling parents in the About.com Homeschooling Forum. Give it a try!
And happy homeschooling in 2013!
