Dear Helping Hand,

Is it possible for me to homeschool my grandchildren?


Perhaps. The best advice I can give you is to contact the Home School Legal Defense Association. Their address is Home School Legal Defense Association, P.O. Box 3000, Purcellville, Virginia 20134. Phone: (540) 338-5600. You can find them online at Ask them to send you a summary of the homeschooling laws in your state. Next, ask the membership department for their advice in this matter. Homeschooling definitions can vary from state to state, so this is definitely one for the experts! You might want to consider the following questions before you contact HSLDA:

In whose home will the children be taught?
Who will have the primary responsibility for their care? Will one of the parents be at home or will you be the sole caregiver?
Are the children living with you or with their parents
Who will pay for the homeschooling materials?

Any time you take on the task of homeschooling someone else’s children, it is always better to go into it without the rose-colored glasses. Spend time talking about possible difficulties and challenges and make sure that all parties concerned are agreeable as to how to settle them.
