I’d say yes, no and later.

Yes: if it’s helpful, cheers for them, and helps them support other families. It might offer you some valuable material that will help you be protected in case of some legal issues. It’ll probably give you a little more information that you can pass on to other people—so, sure, if you want to join it.

The other answer would be No. If you’re in Texas like us, we were quite protected, legally, and never ran into any problems. Never knew any problems, so there really wasn’t a need. This decision mostly depends on what state you live in. Some states I’d probably join it before I even mentioned the word “Homeschool.”

The third option is just simply the word Later. So if you don’t join now, you can join later. You can join when you need help. You can join when you know more. It’s something to investigate and decide for yourself.
