CONNECTION IS CRUCIAL !
The best way to get support and encouragement (and you will need this more than you think) is to connect with somebody personal - either by visiting or even by phone. This is called homeschool networking. To know who the other homeschoolers are in your area is often not easy - so how do you find them ? Often homeschoolers are not eager to share there personal information publically, and therefore you will not really know where they are unless YOU initiate the search.
Apart from numerous Homeschooling support groups on Facebook, there is also the South African homeschool support groups on Yahoo,
homeschoolingsa · Homeschooling in South Africa
HomeschoolSA · Homeschool South Africa
HSKitchenTable · Practical Support for South African Homeschoolers
tuisonderwys · Tuisonderwys in Suid-Afrika - Home education in South Africa
Discussion list on home education in South Africa. Membership of the list is not limited and any matter may be raised, provided that it relates directly or indirectly to home education and provided that common courtesy is maintained. Group is maintained by Leendert van Oostrum.
Another interesting place to visit virtually is the SA homeschool HUBwhich is still in development but it may become a very useful means of connecting with other homeschooler in South Africa.
