Glad I found this thread. I have been at home since DD (age 2) was born. Now my husband is going to sell his business so that he can have a turn staying home w/ the kids. I'm going to pursue my own interests in childbirth education and postpartum doula work. I have lots of great ideas and can't wait to get started.
There is, however, a small conflict. I promised 8 y/o DS (from a previous union) that we would try homeschooling over the summer break and continue into the fall if things work out for both of us. DH doesn't want this responsibility and feels that I won't have the time and/or energy to devote to DS's studies. I think it CAN be managed, because I will set my own hours. If we get up early, we can work together for a few hours before I go to work. Also, much of my work will be done in the evenings.
From what I hear in this thread, it's possible. Realistically, how many hours a day does one need to spend in educational pursuits? Are there any gov't guidelines or requirements?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
