The curriculum required by your state should match the curriculum that you are going to teach your children.
If you are going to homeschool your child, then the curriculum that you teach must be according to state standards to prove that you are teaching them something viable. You must make sure that your curriculum is actually endorsed by the state you are in. Your state educational board will have information that will help you choose the right curriculum to be compliant. In reality, the curriculum that you provide your children is not 100% under control. Homeschooling is flexible, but not in regard to state mandated curriculum.
It is important that you become disciplined. Your children are now going to be educated by you, and the social norms and values will come from you as well. If they get frustrated, you can't just let them take breaks. That's not how it works. If your kids need to do their work, hold them to it. Playing "bad cop" is a role that you will have to play everyday.
Being a teacher - even when you only have a couple of students - is very hard work. Setting a strong example for your kids is something else that you need to do. School isn't just for learning academia. A work ethic must also be imparted.
Give yourself a little time. Without a doubt, it will take some adjustment time. Learning to operate in homeschooling can be a little difficult at first. Some people can take between six months to a year to actually make a determination in regard to whether or not homeschooling will really work out. As long as you've been working with state mandates for education it shouldn't be too hard to transition your children back into regular school if the homeschooling isn't working for you. Perhaps you will find that homeschooling is great for your kids and yourself. If so, don't quit! It is important to be patient with your kids, and your ability to teach your kids. Homeschooling is not easy! Cut yourself some slack and see what you can do. In conclusion, if you want to do home schooling with your children, this is something that you can accomplish if you really want to. Trying to figure out everything all at once can be overwhelming. You need to try to learn as you go instead of trying to rush everything all at once. All you have to do is correct the mistakes that you make along the way and it will be fine. To your success!
