Homeschool Parent Support

What kind of support is there for parents who have decided to homeschool, or have begun the decision-making process?

The Time4Learning Parent Forum has been a great place to interact with other homeschool parents. Benefit from the opinions of experienced homeschoolers. Find a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on. Locate families in your area, compare curriculum, and trade parenting advice. While you're there, share a recipe or craft idea.

To meet the needs of its members, the forum has expanded to become the Time4Learning Parent Community, a rich source of resources for homeschooling. The Home page includes informative articles about topics of interest to homeschoolers, and the ability for members to comment on what they have read. Be the first to comment or join an already active discussion.

Do you have a special interest? Join or start a social group to connect with like-minded people. Topics can be many and varied and do not have to specifically deal with homeschooling.

Have you considered starting a blog? The Time4Learning Parent Community is a great place to easily get started! If you're already a blogger, maybe you have considered started a second, themed blog.

In addition to the new features, parents in the Community now have the ability to start a home page, maintain their own photo gallery, and "friend" other members. To allow members to get to know each other better, one regularly posting member is highlighted each month.

Look for fun contests, like the current January raffle, where members have the opportunity to win a free, three-month subscription to the Time4Learning on line homeschool curriculum.

What else would you like to see in the new community? Please comment with your ideas for additional features, games, or activities. Thank you for being a part of our community, and don't forget to take advantage of all of the new capabilities!
