Detox is that period of time you give yourself and your children to adjust to the transition between schooling (public or private) and homeschooling. The general rule is 1-2 months for each year your child has been in an organized school situation. We strongly suggest you take this time to detox. Children are far less resistant to home instruction if they are given this time, and parents need this time to change their "schoolish thinking." You can use this time to familiarize yourself with Virtual Homeschool International and our features.
