Aye-Aye-Aye-YI!! Managing your home while being homemaker, teacher, counselor, curriculum designer, principal, etc. can be overwhelming. If you need homeschool help, you’re in the right place!
The number one way homeschooling moms cope with household management is to involve their children in learning household duties, skills, and responsibilities. Most homeschooled children help regularly with laundry, cleaning, cooking, helping siblings with lunches, etc. When you’re a homeschooling mom, you simply don’t have time to do it all yourself, and involving your children can prepare them well for independent live when they grow up.
