We all had plans, dreams, and visions of what homeschooling would be like. Then Monday morning comes. The toilet overflows, the cat vomits on the bed, and your ten-year-old says “This math book is stupid!” Yep, welcome to homeschooling. Don’t be discouraged and give up. There is hope. Really. You can do this.
Whether you are beginning your homeschool trek or have been at it for a decade, these days, weeks, months will happen. Susan K. Stewart, with more than twenty years homeschool experience, knows the downs and ups of the day-to-day struggles. She also knows “this too will pass.” Joy is at the end of the journey.
There is joy. There is laughter. The milk spoils. Still, your children will survive. Harried Homeschoolers Handbook gives new homeschoolers assurance and tools to travel the homeschool road. Veterans are encouraged to regroup and look forward to the successful end. Grab your favorite beverage, some chocolate, put your feet up (or close the bathroom door), and be encouraged.
