Homeschooling is the practice of educating kids at home or out in the world instead of traditional schooling. While the concept might be different or even radical for some, it’s on the rise. Since 2012, homeschooling has grown consistently by 3-8% per year.
Our question of the month comes in from Tyler from Livonia, Michigan:
The thought of potentially living on a single income is scary, but it’s something that we’re considering more and more as a family. My wife is growing tired/weary of simply leaving our son at home and not being there / providing for him as she feels she should.
So, the question is this…
Any tips for transitioning to a single income to support a family?
I know it’s something the Hills navigated quite successfully, and I’d like to at least explore it to see if it’s doable for us. My initial thoughts are around a phased approach, but it may be better just to dive in.
Being a Stay-at-Home Mom can be incredibly difficult. Long days, no contact with adults and repetitive tasks that feel like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic can make you lose your marbles. Yes, it is incredibly rewarding and you develop an unbreakable bond with your children, but raising small kids can be physically, mentally and emotionally draining.
