I've been a stay home mom the entire time I've been a single parent (9 years). I went to school in that time and recently I have been working to build my career and continue to be at home. So far, so good.
I have a few extenutating circumstances though. I was very secure and set up well financially BEFORE the marriage and got more solid financially during our marriage. I live in a country where we are given government funds to help aid low income families with children and I am given money to homeschool. All of these things have helped me immensely.
I did online school for a long time when the kids were quite little, then I went to school part-time and my mom helped with the kids. I did receive financial assistance for school and that helped too.
I know Dar has been a very resourceful single, homeschooling mama for many, many years. If you search old posts by Dar, you may be inspired by her.
