Homeschooling with confidence


415 31st Avenue, Villieria, Pretoria

Come ask your questions! Is homeschooling legal? How can I defend my home schooling? Can my children be taken away? What should my child learn? What about discipline? What about socialisation? How do I start, and how do I keep it up? Help! It doesn't work, what do I do now? What about resources?

From 08:45 until 13:00

  1. I have a son whom is 8 never been in school cause he is misdiagnosed some of the dotors says he has ADHD SOME SAYS ASD. So ive been trying to get him at school n they want to inject him with something so he can calm down in class and that I dont like. Cause I knw how to control him so is it possible for you to assist me to homeschool him

    1. Hi there!

      It should be perfectly possible for your to home school him yourself. Are you at home to teach him?

      What is important for him at this stage to learn is to learn a love for reading, and to learn maths. Read aloud to him from good, interesting story books for about an hour every day. He can play with Legos etc while you are reading. He will listen better that way. For the rest he should play and help you and his Dad around the house.

      Please e-mail me to for further assistance.

  2. Hi Karin. I have x4 foster children whom I have pulled out of their school for physical abuse and it being in a really bad location. They have all been hurt or physically abused in some way, shape or form. I have x1 9 year old & x2 11year olds (twins) & x1 who has just turned 12 years of age. I know they are behind academically but I would really like some advice on what to do. I know a Grade R teacher who is going to be homeschooling them for a short while just to get back to any basics they may have lost out on but it’s also only one child per day for 2 hours. And then the next child goes the following day for 2 hours. Do you think this is enough time for them? They also don’t have any proper CAPS educational books & I was wondering where I could purchase them from once we start getting donations in?

    Thank You
