We obtained a curriculum to follow and purchased a computer with the idea that we could get some online tutoring help if needed, but at that time there did not seem to be much available. There were many times when I felt I could have used some assistance, particularly with math and I was very nervous about starting algebra as it held mysteries for me, which I had never really mastered while in school. However we struggled on and eventually settled in a town on Vancouver Island where I was able to enroll the boys in school. The transition went comparatively smoothly. They were 12, 14 and 16 at the time and I was a bit concerned that there might be gaps in their education as I had not been able to find a tutor I could afford.
Nowadays, there are more options for parents to obtain tutoring for their children and quite inexpensively. After the boys started attending school, they were introduced to the concept of homework that was to be done after school hours. This was not met with delight, I can assure you, from any of us. They thought of it as doing home schooling as well as attending school. I would have welcomed some assistance with their homework as, by then, I was a single parent and working full time, mostly in the evenings and weekends, so I was not always available to help, and anyway they were starting to get into subjects that I had not covered in my years at school.
My eldest son and his wife are now considering home schooling for their boy, not yet in Kindergarten, and I am happy that there are more options for them to get help than I had.
