I am most likely going to homeschool my three children (12, 10, 8) next year. This would not be my first time homeschooling. I homeschooled my 12 year old for a year in first grade. I am excited to homeschool them and looking forward to the opportunity. This was a kind of unexpected decision, but we are homeschooling due to the public school not meeting my son's needs (it never really has, but starting middle school has been particularly tough). My girls are fine in school, but they will want to come home so, unless they tell me otherwise, I'll bring them home, too (they ask to homeschool at least monthly, so... heh). I am finishing up my BA online and had planned on taking a year off, then applying for a Master's program in my area. I also work part time online (between 8-15 hours a week). I had thought I would abandon getting my Master's but lately I really feel like I don't want to do that. I found a local program that is a mix of online and in person classes and is offered part time. This makes my desire to earn a master's reasonable again. But is it really? What kind of moms are homeschooling? I have this vision of mostly stay at home moms schooling their children. I'm not asking about what your children do or what your schooling philosophy is as much as what do YOU, as a mom, do? Are there other moms who homeschool their children and work or are students themselves? How much time does it take out of your day? I'd love to hear about your experiences and what you do. Thanks!!!
