    Post Weekly Poll: How long have you been homeschooling?

    How long have you been homeschooling your children? I've been homeschooling since 1999 and my youngest is 5, so we'll be at it for quite a while longer.

    I didn't know that's when you started. We kicked things off in 1999 too! Coinky-dink!

    Done homeschooling here. We homeschooled for 11 years, starting in very early elementary. Kiddos are only 12.5 months apart in age, so i was essentially done withing one typical school "career."

    We are in our 5th year.

    It is also the longest continuous job I've ever held without going back to school, switching topics or taking a break to have a baby .

    If we start the count the year our oldest didn't go off to Kindergarten, that means we're in our 8th year, and unless we have a need to stop, I'm in it for the long haul, as my youngest is 2. I guess I'll be 59 or 60 when he's high school graduation age, wow. That's actually not that far off. I better get to the gym more often.

    Technically, it's 7 years officially homeschooling, but I like to count pre-k too, so I'll go with 8.

    Yep. I started homeschooling with a child that wasn't my own. My oldest was almost 2 at the time.
