Parents Considering Homeschool?

As a subscriber to the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) newsletter, I wanted to share this information to those families who are considering homeschooling as a solution for your children's education.

I subscribed to this informative newsletter a few years ago. This organization provides resources to homeschooling families and legal support to families who want to homeschool but may have met resistance from federal or state laws restricting their rights as parents.

As a teacher and as parents, we have been considering this option in the future for our sons, especially since the option to send them to a private school is pretty slim at this time.  I feel homeschooling would be a great way to take control of our children's education. Parents can now join HSLDA for free through April 30, 2009

According to HSLDA, By becoming an HSLDA member you can help build a stronger coalition for protecting parental rights.  Approved applicants will be granted a free membership good through July 31, 2009. Of course, you will be able to renew for continued benefits after this trial membership period. Join now >>

In addition, HSLDA is offering this free seminar for parents considering homeschooling:

Homeschooling Young Children

I was happy to discover your Little Bytes News blog today. I was unable to find an email link in your profile. I hope it's OK that I'm contacting you through a public comment. I've developed an educational program for Windows called SpellQuizzer that helps children learn their spelling words without the battle that parents often have getting them to sit down and write them out while the parents dictate to them. The parent enters the child's spelling words into the software making a sound recording of each word. Then the software helps the child practice his or her words. It really helped my children with their weekly spelling lists.

I would appreciate your reviewing SpellQuizzer in Little Bytes News. You can learn more about the program at There's a video demo you can watch at I'd be happy to send you a complimentary license for the software. Please let me know if you are interested.

Thank you very much!
