Hi. I'm new to homeschooling and new to this group. I started homeschooling my 1st grader in april when we pulled him from public school. Next year I will be doing 2nd grade and Kindergarten and will have a 1 year old as well.
I know all the pros of homeschooling and I want the best for my kids. But I am REALLY struggling with the whole homeschooling lifestyle. I always thought my kids would get old enough for school and then I'd work part time, volunteer, and pursue my own interests. Then be back home to spend time with them after school. I know I can still have my own interestes while homeschooling but it is so much harder.....especially since my husband works long hours and I rarely have anyone to watch my kids so I can go do anything I want to. I cant commit to anything bc his schedule could change and he wont be home to keep the kids. And I cant afford a baby sitter for 3 kids very often.
I just wondered if anyone else has this same struggle?
