How can a family or single mom homeschool and still work full time. Are there anyways to homeschool and work outside the home?

How can a family or single mom homeschool and still work full time. Are there anyways to homeschool and work outside the home? I am looking for tips, examples, stories, and ideas. Any and all information on the topic of homeschooling while holding a job of any kind would be helpful.

  • Well from experience if your children are being home schooled you make your own schedule. Like when the single parent gets off work

  • Set your own schedule. After work summerize on some subjects. On the weekends dedicate more time to learning. If your kids are old enough they can do some type of independant work to. Reading can be especially, great during those times. It can be done. I suggest you google single homeschooling moms for tips to help you.

  • The single homeschooling moms I know have done a variety of things to make it work. One mom is divorced and she and the father have opposite work schedules so that one of them has their child every day & they share homeschooling. Another mom has a home daycare provider who helps the kids with their homework during the day but she does the actual homeschooling in the evening. Others have a grandparent or other homeschooling family that keeps their children during the day and helps with some of the homeschooling. Another mom with older kids who can stay by themselves at night works nights, then she gets them started on their independent work for the day in the a.m. & sleeps while they do their work. She has time to go over work and answer questions in the evening. Others work double shifts/long days & then homeschool on their days off. It can be done, you just have to get really creative & manage your time well.

  • I personally don't think you can give 100% to both. Make a decision, one or the other.
