The OFTP Newsletter: Home Rules

In the past, members of the Ontario Federation of Teaching Parents received a bi-monthly print newsletter, called HOME RULES. It was then switched to PDF file format, viewable online. Currently we send out a monthly e-newsletter to members, directly by email.

Past issues are still available to members and are full of articles by members, reprints from other publications, homeschooling news tidbits, recommended books, links to online resources, and more. As a sampling, we've reprinted a few of the articles in our blog -- see the posts with the tag Home Rules.

Have an article, resource review, or kid's art to submit?

We welcome your contributions! See the suggestions and guidelines on how to contribute to the newsletter or blog.
