    Hi everyone! We're making some nice improvements to the site that I have a feeling you will be really excited about when we share them all with you...but along with every site update always comes a few bugs. If any of you are experiencing difficulties with the site, the FIRST thing to do is to go into your browser and clear your cache. If you aren't sure how to do that, check this great Wiki-How article for instructions specific to your browser.

    Once you have cleared your cache, then completely close down your browser and reopen it before navigating back to SecularHomeschool.com. If that doesn't fix the issue you are having, then help us help you by sharing your problem in our Technical Issues forum. If possible, please let us know the following things when reporting your issue:
    • type of computer you are using (HP Laptop/iPad/Asus Netbook/etc)
    • your operating system (Windows 7/Mac OS X/Linux/etc)
    • your browser type (IE 7/Firefox 10/etc)
    • as clear an explanation of your issue as possible (screenshots are always helpful but not crucial)

    If someone else has already shared an issue that is similar to yours, don't hesitate to simply add a comment to a previous thread saying something like..."yeah, that's exactly the problem I'm having!"

    I apologize for any inconvenience you might be experiencing with the site or forums, and hopefully we will get ALL the bugs worked out ASAP. And the benefits will hopefully outweigh the short-term difficulties. Thanks for your patience, everyone!!

    site-news-jpgBased on suggestions and feedback from our members, SecularHomeschool.com has added a new forum section to our main forum page. This section is geared toward those who are homeschooling (or thinking about homeschooling) children in the middle school and/or high school grade levels.

    Approaches to homeschooling lower and upper grade levels can vary quite widely, so it will be helpful for parents of older students to have a dedicated place to discuss the ins and outs of curriculum, college prep, record-keeping, and just generally parenting an adolescent.

    As with all the forums, having a dedicated forum doesn't mean that every thread about homeschooling middle/high school HAS to be posted in the new section, but the hope is that members will be able to find grade-specific threads more easily and with less searching. I hope this will be a helpful and well-used addition to the site!

    How exciting it is to see that our SecularHomeschool.com membership has now exceeded 4,000 members!! I started this site back in April, 2009 and it was a couple months before we even had twenty members. After feeling so disillusioned with my local faith-based support groups, and finally coming to the conclusion that I just might be the only secular homeschooler within a 100-mile radius, I began SHS to help me feel a little less "alone" in the homeschooling world.

    Even after just a few members came on board I began to feel more in tune with homeschooling than I think I had ever felt before. These people "got me" and I, in turn "got them." We laughed, we talked about this unusual thing called secular homeschooling, and we wished for even more people to join us.

    For those of us who are still here who remember those "good ole days" (SHOUT OUT to dbmamaz, camaro, inmom - - am I missing anyone??), ...

    SecularHomeschool.com has a good many members who are pagan, and it seemed like a cool idea to pull together information that they've shared on the forum and in our social networks to create a nice crowdsourced list of links that may be helpful to other pagans who are just kicking off their homeschooling journey. After all, if you've ever done a web search for "pagan homeschooling" you've likely already realized that there aren't a ton of places for pagan homeschoolers to hang out and create support for one another. Googling “pagan homeschooling” brings up a ton of resources, but clicking through to them, you quickly realize that most of them have now gone defunct. I’m concluding that this isn’t because there wasn’t enough interest, but because people simply couldn’t easily find and network with each other.

    Thanks to our members, though, here is a list of some pagan homeschooling sites and resources which you may want to bookmark, if you haven’t already.

    It's that time again...summer!! Which means that SHS.com is kicking off it's annual summer postcard exchange!!

    If you are interested in participating, we have a new private password-protected forum expressly for this purpose! All you have to do is use the Contact Us pagewith your site username to let us know that you want to participate and we will send you the password for the forum so you can safely post your child(ren)'s name and mailing address for the exchange!

    Note: You MUST be a member of SecularHomeschool.com to participate in this project!!

    A postcard exchange is a terrific way to blend in some geography, language arts, and social studies into the lazy, hazy days of summer. Here are some ideas for doing just that...

    • post a large (wall-size?) map on an empty wall and pin each postcard to the appropriate place on the map as it arrives
    • let your children do the choosing of the "outgoing" cards. These can often be found in post-offices, gift stores, hotel lobbies, and especially in your tourist's bureau or visitors center. Locating these cards creates a sense of "pride" for kids about their local area
    • or...let kids create their OWN geography-related postcards using
