    Welcome to Time4Learning.
    I will tell you that, in general, Time4Learning is aimed at younger students, through 8th grade. Where I would point you first is the Welcome to Homeschooling Guide. It is free, and a great place to start. Second, I would send you over to the State Forum for New Jersey. The moderator and other members over there are full of state specific information and guidance and suggestions regarding laws in your state. I hope these two places help you get started on your homeschooling journey. Best of luck!

    Hi Moe, I'm Kathi. I'm the moderator of the New Jersey Forum. The first thing I think you should do is stop, pour yourself a great cup of tea of coffee and sit down and relax. It's not has hard as you think it will be. The good thing is you are in one of the best states to homeschool in. Get connected with several of the many great homeschool groups in the area. There is a link in the New Jersey forum that will guide you to some in your area. Some of them have wonderful groups for teens. Let me know what part of the state you live in and I will direct you to some of the groups. Attend some of the activities and talk to the other moms. That is the best thing I found, just talking to the other moms. So come on over, introduce yourself and let's see what we can do to help.

    Moe, I can certainly relate to your panic - I have so been there. Reaching out and finding others in your area and with kids of similar age is really the best route. Let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you find your path.

    Hi, I'm in NJ and there is just so much going on. If there is a way you could contact me or I could contact you, it is easier to explain that way. I did get more information but, I just need a little guidance.
    Thank you again. Everyone is just so helpful and kind.
