Homeschooling is a wonderful blessing, but homeschooling is not an easy road. There have been plenty of people who have started and stopped for a variety of reasons. Here are some reasons that homeschooling can fail and how you can avoid them.
1. No Support – Homeschooling is not easy. Perhaps you are trying to homeschool without the support of your spouse, perhaps it’s your parents or your in-laws, swimming upstream is tough and frankly it can wear you out!
2. Isolated – Not knowing another “IRL” (In Real Life) homeschooling family or at least another homeschooling mom can make life challenging. On-line connections are wonderful and have been such a blessing to me, but never getting to hang out face to face with another friend who shares your same lifestyle can be tough.
3. Too Busy – Having the days and the weeks filled up for every child doesn’t leave much time for much book learning, or much time down time for mom or the child. That can lead to burn out quick. It’s okay for kids to have “nothing” to do once in a while.
