Hi just to let you know I just started homeschooling my younger daughter and I am a single mom. I work 4 days per week. She goes to an enrichment program on Mondays then a wonderful sitter who does arts, crafts hiking and baking on Tuesday and Thursdays then her grandma and grandpas on Wednesdays where she works on more traditional type work esp reading comprehension. Then we hit it on the weekends and Fridays with more reading, science, history etc. The nice thing about homeschooling is that you can do it however you want and it is great! most anybody can make it work.

This is just my second year homeschooling. Last year I was a SAHM, and this year I am going to start working part-time and giving that a shot. I have an interview tomorrow, so we will see! I will still be the only one doing the school work, so I'm hoping I can swing this!

My first year homeschooling I was working Monday, Tuesday morning, Thursday full day and every second weekend. My daughter went to a preschool most mornings and came to work with me the days I worked the afternoons. We did homeschooling with her in the afternoon and it was mostly just reading as she was very young.

For the first 8 months of this year I have homeschooled full time as I was on maternity leave but have now returned to work part time mostly on weekends. If I am working full time during the week then we drop the homeschooling and take that as a holiday period. Weekends DH watches her and we can continue our homeschooling in the week.

That is the joy of homeschooling - that you can make it work for you in whatever circumstances you need to.

I am a single mom and I have been homeschooling for the past 12 years while working as a substitute teacher. My mother helped with the homeschooling when my dds were young. Now they are in high school in a virtual academy where they have teachers that they are accountable to. That has been a blessing to me because it is less work for me and they are getting a great education with a great curriculum (K12).
Many blessings,

I have started working this year - tutoring after regular school 3 afternoons per week. My boys (5 and 3 1/2) go to a preschool and have a babysitter who takes them to the public library on the other afternoon. I find it hard to juggle everything, my husband likes the place spotless and dinner sorted, and doesn't seem too interested in what the boys are learning or doing. Is that normal? I love the tutoring but am unsure now it will fit as the boys get older.

I work evenings mostly. Am home with my daughter all through the day and then my husband gets home and I leave. Thankfully it's not every day, probably 3-4 nights a week so I still get to see him too. Jude- I feel for you having a husband who wants the house spotless! That would be very hard to have that pressure on you in addition to everything else.
