Home Educator's Family Times

This is the site of Home Educator's Family Times, an online magazine for parents and families who have chosen alternative, individualized approaches to learning. These experiences might take place in the comfort of your own home, on the road (sometimes called road-schooling) or a mix of traditional schooling, homeschooling, travel or experiential. Whatever you have chosen, we are here to support and encourage your very individual decision with helpful articles, how-tos and words that encourage.
