Did your son go away for Kindgergarten?
Does he have friends who have gone off to school? Sometimes that impacts because they feel left out -- especially in the first weeks when the school kids report how awesome everything is...
First step, IMHO, is to find a local homeschooling group.
Local groups come in many varieties and styles -- some are more religiously-focused others more secular; some are academically-oriented, others more devoted to play/socialization.
Depending on where you are and how many groups are around you, you may find that one or another fit your needs and preferences whereas others....um, not so much.
Second, the various homeschooling groups should be the best place for info about classes homeschoolers might be able to take within the school system. (Not to mention being the best font of knowledge related to reporting requirements.)
Third, I find that museums, zoos & park systems are an excellent source of classes. As they are not tied to the school systems there is less of the *problem* of impacting homeschooler status.
Around here (Indianapolis, IN area) each of those resources have specific areas devoted to the homeschooling population -- which is especially nice, as they are during the workday.
Lastly, sometimes resistance indicates that they child needs/wants a different style of learning than what his being presented or offered. Change it up. Try different things. Sample this and that. Get into what they like and see where that takes you.
