I'm fed up with the NYC public schools.<br><br>
I'm a single, WOH mama. I'm trying to find a way to homeschool my son. Obviously, I would have to teach him at night. Someone suggested that I find a homeschooling family that could watch him during the day, make sure his homework is done, etc. Obviously, I would pay.<br><br>
Does anyone else have this arrangement, or know someone who does? Any advice? I'm also checking the homeschooling forum.<br><br>
TIA!

Are you on the <a href="http://groups.yahoo.com/group/API-NYC/" target="_blank">NYC-API</a> list? One of the co-leaders homeschools her son, and would probably be able to give you a lot of information.

I know there are several Queens families in my LI homeschool group- but there may be something closer to you. Check the Yahoo Groups and MSN groups for a homeschool group in your area.

Thanks a lot mamas but can I get any info without going through Yahoo? I keep losing the ID and password and have had to create new profiles and it's just been too much headache.<br><br>
Is there anyone I can email directly for info?<br><br>
TIA!

How about getting in touch with the New York City Home Educators Alliance, <a href="http://www.nychea.org/?" target="_blank">http://www.nychea.org/?</a><br><br>
Thee are also some links here: <a href="http://www.nyhen.org/LocalGroups.htm#Southeast" target="_blank">http://www.nyhen.org/LocalGroups.htm#Southeast</a>, including one specifically for African Americans in Brooklyn, but alas, it is mostly yahoo groups.

Hi Yamilee!<br><br>
Thanks for your post. I just spoke with someone at the nyhen.org and she was very helpful. She's going to put me in touch with some single parents who are homeschooling as well as some families who are open to homeschooling someone else's child.<br><br>
Thanks again. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Once you've signed up for a particular Yahoo group you can set it up to send everything to your email, so you don't have to deal with your Yahoo ID directly at all (well, you do when you set it all up but then you don't have to continue to do so to keep in contact with the group.)<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wave.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wave"> Fellow single homeschooler here (but I'm in Nassau County, pretty close to the Suffolk border.)

Hi Ruthla,<br><br>
You are amazing! I read thru some of the old threads and YOU ROCK!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
I know about Yahoo but the problem is it won't give me my password and ID. My AOL emails have already been used so it won't issue me another ID using those emails and I don't want to get another email address somewhere just to register with Yahoo yet again. I'm so sick of them. Ugh.<br><br>
The woman I spoke with today about the families was really nice so I hope (1) this works out or (2) I get a job in another state.<br><br>
I really can't deal with this much longer, for my son's sake. This school has put me in so many tears since September that you'd think a lover just broke my heart or the like.
