Have you decided to homeschool? Whether your situation has just pushed you into the world of home education or you’ve dreamed of homeschooling your children from the beginning, homeschooling can seem so daunting when you’re first starting out.
*This post contains affiliate links. See my full disclosure.
There are so many things to take into consideration: the legal requirements, the popular methods, curriculum choices, conferences, homeschool support groups and co-ops, making sure your child’s social needs will be met, your homeschool setup, schedule and organization… phew!
With so much to research and adjust to initially, you may feel like you could use a little guidance.
With this in mind, I recently asked over 20 seasoned homeschooling moms to share their number-one piece of advice to new homeschooling moms, and they were very generous to take the time to do so.
Some of these moms have begun homeschooling within the past few years, others have over 20 years behind them! All have valuable advice to pass along.
So grab a cup of coffee and consider this post your mom-to-mom coffee date where you get to glean from their experience, perspective, and wisdom as you are beginning your own home education journey.
I hope you will find some encouragement and assurance as you read through.
Pin for later!
Best Advice from Seasoned Homeschooling Moms
Each child learns differently and the joy of homeschooling is the ability to tailor the curriculum around your child’s learning style. Teresa, 6-year homeschooling mom of two children, ages 11 and 14
There will be hard days, hard weeks, and even hard years. It’s worth it in the end!! Don’t quit (and you are going to want to quit at some point). If there are things that you can let go of right now to make it easier, do that.Jenn, 18-year homeschooling mom of 6 children, ages 4-24
One last piece of advice I would add is to immerse your family in community with other like-minded homeschooling families. Don’t go at it alone!
