Homeschool Moms Offer Their Insights

The social media world is lighting up questions about homeschool curriculum. Perhaps it's the weather, the time of the year or just something in the water. Whatever it is, right now the hope and promise of the next school year is more exciting than the current one. And with this excitement come the questions:

"Which Core should I get for my students?"
"What's this homeschool program like?"
"Should I use this resource or that one?"
"What do you do about _______?"
"How would you modify this?"

The insights of homeschool moms are in high demand. I see people asking all over the internet: forums, Facebook, blogs. As the questions swirl around the World Wide Web, I'd like to share a few places where you can consistently get great advice about homeschooling:

  1. Sonlight Curriculum Advisors
    Sonlight's Advisors are homeschool moms, not sales people. Advisors aren't a group of people sitting in a call center or office waiting to sell you stuff. Sonlight's Advisors are homeschool moms who make time in their day to answer your questions about homeschooling and homeschooling with Sonlight.

  2. Homeschool Conventions
    It's no coincidence that the convention season begins around now. This is the time you want answers, so this is time to provide them. Homeschool moms from all over the nation (and even one or two internationally) lug their boxes of Sonlight stuff to conventions to show you what Sonlight is like. They answer your questions, show you the materials and then make themselves available as a resource for you throughout the year.

  3. Virtual Booth
    The Virtual Booth is my baby. I poured a lot of time and effort into this tool. You can get the basics of a convention booth before you take the effort and time to visit one. You can poke around a Sonlight convention booth, get lots of foundational information, and find some fantastic resources without moving form your spot right now. And the two "hosts" of the Virtual Booth? Also homeschool moms.

If you're looking for advice from homeschool moms for your upcoming homeschool year, we've got you covered. Chat with an Advisor. Find a homeschool convention. Or swing by the Virtual Booth.
