Many parents are very excited to begin home schooling their child. But such excitement is tempered by the air of apprehension. They worry about how to keep their child interested in the material, how they are going to fit everything in, and, of course, they worry about their child being happy.

It is a matter of finding these resources and using them, when it comes to parents guaranteeing their children's eventual home school success.
Parents planning to home school their children, really, can have all the resources they need. Many public libraries have reading programs set up for young children and a home-schooled child able to benefit from them. Your local library will also have the variety of books your child needs to research subjects, as well as reading for enjoyment. Many of these libraries offer cassette tapes, videotapes, CDs and DVDs and educational computer games for children. The local library may be the resource you use the most to ensure your child's home school success.
Other resources may be available in your community, as well. Many parents of home-schooled children have started up support groups. Often, these groups will plan activities for the children, such as field trips to museums. This will allow your child to interact with others, as well as give you support from others that have the same goals for their children.
