Does this sound like you?

  • You aren’t sure if you should homeschool.
  • You doubt your abilities to teach your children.
  • You worry that you won’t have enough patience to be with your children 24/7 and teach them.
  • You wonder if you could homeschool your gifted child or your struggling learner.
  • You worry that your children won’t be socialized if you homeschool.

Deciding to homeschool is a big decision.

Many parents have a lot of questions about homeschooling.

I did!

I was sitting in a children’s ministry meeting at church, and one of the other moms on the ministry team was telling us about her homeschool week.

I distinctly remember telling her, “I could never homeschool. I don’t have enough patience!”

Well, God has quite a sense of humor. Over the next several weeks, he placed other homeschool moms in my path, and three different people asked if we were going to homeschool.

I said, “Okay, God. I get it. I’ll look into homeschooling.” Honestly, I didn’t know much about homeschooling.

I began asking questions. Lots of questions.

  • What is homeschooling?
  • When would I get a break from my children?
  • What would I teach them?
  • What if my daughter and I clashed?

And then, I suggested to my husband that we consider homeschooling. He had a lot of questions too! Honestly, he had more questions than I did!

  • What about socialization?
  • How will they participate in extracurricular activities like speech and debate, drama, choir, or sports?
  • Will they get into college?

Next, I started researching. I read everything I could get my hands on.

Wondering what I found? Here are a collection of podcast episodes and blog posts in which I share the answers to the questions I asked when we were considering homeschooling and more that I wish I had asked.
