Looking for a way to earn money from home while homeschooling?

One of the biggest concerns I hear from parents that are considering homeschool is how can they afford it. For one parent to give up their income is a huge sacrifice, and obviously not doable for many. 

Well, I have a sponsor that I’ve worked with for several years that has a possible solution for you. Deborah Burns has been a medical transcriptionist for over 30 years. She used the flexibility of this career to earn money while homeschooling, plus helped support her family while her husband was in grad school. Now she helps folks learn the ropes of this industry so they can do the same!

How to Homeschool #21: Create a Homeschool Oasis

As we get so focused on figuring out the nuts and bolts of teaching math, history, science, and language arts, it can be easy to overlook the need for what I call The Homeschool Oasis. Our children are not machines, and they cannot (and should not) be task-driven all day, relentlessly graded and assessed as they face new challenges left and right.

There is a space between sit-down school and free play that I call The Homeschool Oasis. This space offers structure for important experiential learning that is best offered as a free gift, without the pressure to teach, grade, or assess. This is an important secret sauce to a successful homeschool routine.

In today’s video I share about some of the items that work well in the Homeschool Oasis space, so you can start to think about how you can include that in your days.

How to Homeschool Part 12: Organizing your homeschool day

There are as many ways to organize a homeschool schedule as there are families that take on this quest. While there is excitement in such freedom, it can also be so broad that newcomers feel overwhelmed by all the options. In this collection of videos I offer some things for you to consider as you figure out what works for your own family, as well as some of the things that worked for mine.

How to Homeschool Part 11: A full childhood

One of the great gifts of homeschooling is the opportunity to respect your child’s humanity, nurture their normal developmental stages, and safeguard their childhood.  I offer these videos as food for thought and inspiration as you continue to envision what learning at home can offer. It is so much more than simply doing school at home!

How to Homeschool Part 10: Reasonable Expectations

So often, new homeschool parents think that their kids should be engaged in sit-down learning from 8am-3pm because they think that’s how school is. Not so! In today’s post I talk about reasonable expectations for attention span, as well as how many hours of formal academics to expect in a typical school day. Good news: Homeschooling offers you an immense amount of freedom and flexibility to create a learning environment that you and your kids will thrive with!

@enrichment_studies You don’t have to be “doing school” from 8-3! #Homeschool #homeschooling #homeschoolmom #howtohomeschool ♬ original sound – Erica Johns: How to Homeschool
