Come partake in lively, stimulating discussion with fellow homeschooling parents in a relaxed, friendly environment. The topic will be “Finding Balance.”
Homeschooling in the 21st century can be overwhelming. Support groups, field trips, classes, learning centers, dance lessons, AP courses, play groups, music, and more. Whatever happened to informal park days and curling up on the couch with a good book? At this salon, we'll talk about the sometimes tricky process of enjoying a comfortable, low-stress homeschooling lifestyle, including ways to find balance for working and single parents.
Exact location and directions will be provided to you about a week before the meeting.
The discussion will be geared toward adults, so we ask that you leave at home children who will be as happy or happier there with a loving caregiver. Interested teens are welcome to attend.
Cost is $15/person (teen and adult) to reserve your spot; the full price will be refunded to you, making your participation FREE. If you don't show up, your money will be donated to support the non-profit mission of AHEM.

Space is limited. No refunds after February 6th except those made to meeting attendees.
*Please note: This salon is up some stairs in a home with cats and a dog.
Salon Series participants will be added to the Friends of AHEM list unless they specifically opt out.

What better way to prepare for AHEM’s State House Day than an in-district, face-to-face meeting with Massachusetts State Legislators!
State Senator Thomas McGee (D, Third Essex) and State Representative Lori Ehrlich (D, Eighth Essex) will be on hand to talk with homeschooling constituents from any Massachusetts district about all aspects of state government. This is an excellent opportunity to get answers to questions such as “What is the difference between a senator and a representative?”, “How are state laws passed?”, “What issues are you working on at the State House?” and many more.
FREE but preregistration is required. Space is limited. Registrants will receive exact location and directions about a week before the event. Register online: http://ahemhowstategovtworks.eventbrite.com
Participants will be added to the Friends of AHEM list unless they specifically opt out.
IMPORTANT: If you sign up for this event, please do your best to attend. Remember:
- When you sign up, you are reserving a spot that then cannot be given to someone else.
- It is disrespectful of our host and reflects poorly on all homeschoolers when we reserve space, and a large part of our group doesn’t attend the event.
- If you sign up and do not show up, AHEM reserves the right to no longer treat your reservation request on a first come, first served basis for future AHEM events, only assigning you a spot should there be room after the deadline has been met.
