Do you have bright kids at home?
Are you thinking about homeschooling a gifted kid?
Would you like to homeschool and travel?

Welcome to "Bright Kids at Home" a place for families who are looking for ideas about homeschooling gifted kids.

"Finally, a practical website geared towards homeschooling and traveling with gifted and talented students."

Homeschooling is exciting and challenging at the same time. Homeschooling a gifted kid is an even more exciting and challenging proposition! Over the years I have discovered a lot of things sharing my every day with a gifted kid and this website became a journal of what I learned as a mentor, as travelers, as homeschoolers. I recently transformed these pages into a book that any homeschooling parent can use.

Our homeschool "method" was eclectic. We were homeschooling for academic reasons... As of 2018, my student is a college graduate and a professional using the degree he earned. I have preserved these web pages over the years to maybe help another student enjoy the same sort of success. These pages still enjoy a lot of visitors.

People choose to homeschool for many reasons. When we started homeschooling in 1999, the academic world was very different, the political world that controlled the academic world was also very different. The end game for many homeschoolers then was to get into a good college and leave with a degree that made them employable in the field of their dreams. I imagine the reasons parents continue to choose homeschooling are still the same, safety reasons, religious reasons, moral reasons, academic reasons.
