My DD is only 2.5 so we haven't started homeschooling yet, but we are planning on it when she reaches school age. I am curious what it has been like for the parent who is homeschooling? Do you work as well, or are you a stay at home parent? I feel like I will have so much more time then a parent homeschooling multiple children. Also, did your children stay home for the preschool years, and did you stay home or work before they are school age?
As far as socialization is concerned, do you feel like it is hard to find friends for your child, and for yourself to spend time with in the day. I have a great network of moms I know now, but none of them are planning on homeschooling. I also don't expect to be living here when we start schooling, since DH is a grad student, and we will go wherever he gets a job.
I have read through a lot of the threads in the homeschooling and stay at home mom forums, but I never seem to come across ones for parents of only children. Is it because most parents of only children are working and their children are in school? I wouldn't assume that was the case, but sometimes it seems that way. Anyways, if you are a homeschooling parent of an only child, or plan on homeschooling an only child, I would love to hear what it is like, and any advice you might have. Thanks.
