Whatever has led you to that conclusion, take some time to do your own research. Taking responsibility for your child (ren’s) education is a serious undertaking and should not be done lightly. There is a lot of information out there on styles and this and that, but in the end you know you best and you know your children best. If you decide to homeschool, do not do your child (ren) a disservice by being uninvolved, and just thinking that they will be okay by being home versus being in a school setting (public, private, charter, etc.).

Develop your homeschooling philosophy/foundation and stick to it. Do not be swayed by this program/curriculum only to purchase it and find it not to be for you, check it against your philosphy/foundation. Read, read, read and keep reading as you are never to old to learn and you need to learn if you are going to provide instruction to your children.

Now that I have said all of this, here are some great books to help with your philosophy/foundation development:

Very good books, if you are seeking a Biblical foundation for your homeschool.
