    Default How did you first start??

    did you just jump right in and sign up all your kids
    or did you try it out for one child then the others??

    i have 4 kids and not sure i can afford $65 a month right
    but have been looking at this program for some time now
    trying to decide what to do

    also does anyone else here have multiples they are homeschooling?
    wondering if i should get one account and let them all work together for a bit until we know if they like it or not

    thanks for any insight!!

    I started T4L with my older daughter (age 12) but my (almost) 8 year old was signed up a couple months ago because we were so happy with the program. We pay quarterly for a larger discount ($30/month).

    I think trying out your kids, close to the same age, with one account is smart. That is what I would do. Just remember that reports will be combined so it will be harder to keep track of who did what. If I were you, I would place the kids into 2 groups (for 2 accounts) and try it like that for a short while.

    I have a feeling you will like the program, and for it to work best (in my opinion) you will probably find yourself looking into getting each one their own account (if he/she will be using it regularly) - just a guess, to to keep in mind.

    Good luck

    thanks!
    think will set up an account next week for the triplets as a test run
    to see how well they do and how they like it...

    I pay quarterly, too. How much do you pay Stephanie?
    Since I only have one doing T4l, for now, I can only imagine how confusing it would be only having one account for multiple children at or around the same age. But i'm sure you'll like the program to where you will want a separate account

    I give them a money order for a certain amount (because I don't have a bank account or no bank card.)
    I am wondering what Stephanie pays because her and my amount that we pay might differ. :?

    I pay through Paypal - $90 every 3 months for two accounts. Login to your Paypal account and send the payment here [email protected]

    I guess I shouldn't have said $30/month because if I made monthly payments, I would lose the quarterly discount.

    Call T4L to set it up, or send the payment via Paypal, but send followup to make certain it is applied properly.

    I have two that are school aged, and I started them both at the same time. They both previewed the sample lessons and decided it was the direction they wanted to go. I would not be able to assemble a comprehensive core curriculum for multiple children for less than it costs to do T4L, so the choice was clear for me.
