Very Happy Hi!
I have 4 kids and worked full time teaching at a Christian school where they went and it was overwhelming. I couldn't imagine hs, too. But I was just wondering, are you a single mom? If so I can understand why you'd be working. How many kids do you have? I do know of a woman who works and hs her daughter who is the only one at home and her husband is at home on disability, too.
I was a single mom of 4 at one point but just couldn't bring myself to put my kids in daycare and couldn't afford it. For you I don't know your situation but all I can say is that from what I know, parents who hs often make sacrifices to do what is best for their children. It's not easy giving up the income but once our children are grown it will be well worth it to see how they turn out.
I hope I have helped a little. Welcome! Very Happy

I work full-time outside my home and homeschool my daughters. I work evenings and we do school during the day. It is hectic, but I wouldn't stop homeschooling for anything, and I have to keep working. Hope that helps.

I don't leave the house to work full time, but I just started a business, so it basically amounts to the same thing. Granted, my LOs are both under three right now, and there are days when I wonder if I'm going to have time for everything when we start "formal" schooling.

I have been working and homeschooling for years, in and outside the home. I would love to see this as a forum topic, as a place to encourage working parents and trade tips.
