If you live in the North Texas area and homeschool just 1 child, this is the group for you. Discuss all that makes this a great situation and exchange information.
North Texas is generally considered to be the Counties in Red in the map to the left. We are not that specific; if you need fellowship because you are homeschooling just one child and live elsewhere, you are welcome to join us as well. There will be specific information shared for the North Texas area, specifically the DFW environs; however, that you would need to disregard.

This group is for parents who are currently (or are considering) homeschooling their only child. We are of every faith. We are from various locations. We are everything from school-at-home to radical unschoolers. What binds us all is the unique challenges and triumphs of homelearning with an only child. Please note: This is for one-child families only. No "only by default" allowed. This is a secular group. For "Judeo-Christian beliefs and worldview" of homeschooling of an only child, please join elsewhere.
Archives are kept online and are open to nonmembers to read.

Homeschooling an only child can be quite challenging at times. This group is open to anyone for support, encouragement and ideas for those who choose the home-schooling road for you and your child. Although we are based in NC, anyone can join for support. We have a database that you can access to see who is in your state to get together with.

Homeschooling families with singletons have issues that are very unique. Join in to offer support and encouragement to other single child homeschooling families. Feel free to discuss general homeschooling issues or singleton issues that don't pertain to homeschooling. It doesn't matter which homeschooling style you use. Families with children spaced far apart are also welcome to join this group since your issues are quite similar to those of us with single child families.
 
This group will only be lightly monitored. Please keep comments kind hearted. No flaming, racist, or mean spirited posts will be tolerated. And please do not post ads for used curriculum here. All are encouraged to participate regularly instead of just lurking in order to keep this group active. Please introduce yourself to us in your initial post after joining.
While the main focus here is homeschooling and singleton issues, off topic posts are welcome (with the exception of religion and politics, which often result in heated debates). Please send messages to the group in the body of regular email and not with file attachments.
If you sign up and go with NO E-MAIL, please post a reason why and you will be notified if it is approved or not. Thanks for joining and Happy Homeschooling your "one-derful" singleton!

If you have a single child family, this is the group for you. We don't care for the term "only child" because it sounds so negative. We like the term "singleton" instead...Hence the group name.

This is a secular group for parents homeschooling only children or homeschooling only one of their children. This is a safe space where we can share the joys and wonders and trials and tribulations of homeschooling only one child. This group welcomes all homeschoolers of single children regardless of method of schooling used, race, religion or lifestyle. We will be tolerant of views expressed by others. Posts are to be on topic to homeschooling or things affecting your homeschooling. Not everyone has the same beliefs. Not everyone uses the same methods of child raising. As long as we can all be tolerant we can all get along. If you are offended by something someone else says please delete or talk to a moderator.

Email me if you find other e-loops that are for
those homeschooling only one
and I will post them!
From my booth and my speaking, Iím finding a small subset within those Homeschooling Only One comprised of grandparents home educating their grandchild. I have only found one e-group specifically for those with one grandchild, or many whom they are homeschooling. The one I found is no longer a listed group on Yahoo! groups. I will continue to keep my eyes open, but please if you find any that are focused on the grandparent doing the homeschooling, please email that link to me! I'll be happy to add them to this list.
Thank you!

While this group is not solely "Christian", we do have a Christian view point most of the time, but we welcome ANYONE from any faith. When you homeschool an only child, you need all the support you can get! It is not only for "only child" homes... Maybe you have 3 children, but you are schooling only one at home. What do you do? What about socialization? What about playmates during the day? I know there are so many questions. Maybe you have events you would like to share, feel free to post them. Be encouraged... Yes, this road is less traveled, and there are may obstacles along the way, but with support, WE CAN DO THIS!
