If you're a single homeschooling mom, how do you do it?! Even if you're not a single mom, but you homeschool, I would love advice. My husband passed away. I have homeschooled my son all his life. Now, we are moving (probably to Montana, Idaho or Wyoming, but nothing is set in stone, yet). Initially, I thought I'd just have to give up on homeschooling, and put my son in public school since I will have to work full time. A friend thought I might be able to find one or more homeschool families in the area who can teach him along with their own children. Not sure, but I think the legality of that depends on the state. ???? I'm just looking for ideas on how to keep homeschooling. My son is 12 and not very "academic". He is very functional and well-behaved, but "special needs" when it comes to school work. It would not work for me to just spend an hour or so with him in the evenings, and then expect him to do most of his assignments while I'm at work the next day. He loves tinkering with engines and is becoming an amazing mechanic (better than most men!) He is completely self-taught. I'm not asking how to teach a child like that. Just providing a little background information. I'm a registered nurse, but haven't worked outside the home since my son was born. We adopted him at birth, and I'm an "older mom". I am also a certified Bowen Practitioner (similar to acupuncture, but without needles). I could work from home or for myself in a commercial location once I build up enough clients, but will have to start out working outside the home for someone else. To me, the thought of going back to work, leaving my son all day and putting him in public school is absolutely dreadful! Any suggestions on how to connect with other homeschool families in another part of the country, or advice on how to make this work will be appreciated.
