Hello to everyone, I am new to this group. I will tell you a bit about us and then I will ask you a couple of questions, two doubts that are burning me every day since we started homeschooling. My husband, our  three sons (15, 10 and 7) and I recently moved to Chile from Florida, USA. They do not speak Spanish, as I do, having been born in Venezuela.  Our children had been going to public schools since they have the age to go.

You only started last Spring, so you need LOTS of deschooling. Lost of doing LESS "for their education." Or at least doing things that don't look or smell like school.

The more relaxed you become, the better things will work. That might sound crazy, but it's true. :-)
This might help, too:
