  • I have this same problem. However, when I say to interviewers, I stayed home and homeschooled my children for 8 years they tend to ask....what are your kids doing now? I say, I am homeschooling them. I get oh, how are you going to do that? I don't want to answer these questions. I have a hubby that homeschools with me, I don't do it alone. So it becomes thier business. How can I answer this honestly and politely? Sorry to hijack the question OP.

  • With the truth. I know that's blunt, but as a former manager for a staffing company - the truth is the best and only solution for a gap in employment. If you've had recent schooling/education that could help fill the gap - but just stick to honesty.
