Judy Aron's thoughts on Homeschooling Conventions

When we first started homeschooling we attended a weekend homeschooling convention. A couple years later we went to a convention with Susan Wise Bauer as the only speaker. Both of these were very helpful.

If you are new to homeschooling, consider attending a Homeschool Convention. You'll get a chance to check out different curriculum, talk to other homeschooling parents, and get exposure to a variety of ideas on how to homeschool.

Judy Aron, who blogs at Consent Of The Govern, gathered several sites which have lists of upcoming Homeschooling Conventions in her post: Homeschoolers: Convention Season Is Upon Us. It is worth a gander.

Conventions can also be refreshing to those who have homeschooled for awhile.

Many have also found them very helpful in transition times, i.e. when your child is going to begin 'high school'; thinking about college; when baby is now also doing academics etc.

So yes, conventions can be very helpful for those new to homeschooling, but they can also be helpful to those who have been doing it for while.
