Being a working homeschool mom means that you run out the door in 5 minutes or less. In that time, you lose your keys twice, your cell phone once, and you leave your coffee by the microwave. Many people are worried about homeschooling and working, either inside the home or outside the home, because it is way too much to handle. I have to admit most days I agree. Being a mom is hard. Being a homeschool mom is hard. Being a working homeschool mom is hard. It’s all HARD. Today, I want to talk about 5 challenges working homeschool moms face and how you can overcome them.

All of the teaching methods that worked so well for me, were exactly the opposite of what my children needed. They needed hands-on activities!

  1. Due to a family tragedy, my children ages 15, and 14 want me to Homeschool them. Many years ago when my oldest child was about to begin Kindergarten, I gave Homeschooling a lot of thought. I scared myself away from that partly due to my insecurities, worrying I wouldn’t be good enough and might mess up my kids, and partly because after working with my oldest child, using the Hooked on Phonics program, I did have my daughter reading well before she would start school, but she seemed to lose her desire to read because I’m very controlling, and pushed her too hard. Interesting enough I am not that way with other peoples kids (I work for the local Elementary School). How do I get started with them at this age, when I have no idea what to do? Does everyone that Homeschools their children spend tons of money on curriculum or are there ways around that? We visited Mardel”s and saw how expensive things can be, so I plan on visiting our local library very soon. We still aren’t sure we can afford to do this, but we want to try and find the best way to help our children and stay within our budget at the same time. Any advice you could offer would be great. Thanks!

    1. Homeschooling is definitely affordable for almost any budget! Going to check out the library will be very handy, but one of the most helpful things you will find is to see if there is a homeschooling group in your area. Often there is a lot of book sharing going on in those groups, when one families children are done with certain curriculum they’ll often offer to sell for cheap, or just plain give away the books. Also do a lot of poking around the internet about different curriculum. There are countless resources for nearly every subject with plenty of feedback as to what worked and what didn’t. Congrats for making the jump to homeschooling. I promise the first few weeks are the scariest, then suddenly you’ll realize that you’re making it out to be much harder than it truly is!

    2. I too am looking at homeschooling my niece. I have found a wonderful list of resources on both pinterest and on amazon. lots of free ebooks are out there. good luck

  2. I am new to homeschooling and I have a seventh grader who struggles greatly academically and I am having a hard time. I get very frustrated with his lack of drive. I am not sure what to do. I am scared I did the wrong thing. We had a big blowout today and I just don’t think I can do this. He has a language based learning disability and I don’t know if I am the right person to help him. Has anyone else struggled with this. Feeling like a failure.
