A few days ago at the WHAMderful Life Workshop, I was asked by one of the moms if I homeschool my son. I replied with my default answer – I don’t think I have the patience to homeschool. Then I got to thinking, am I really not patient enough to homeschool, or am I writing it off without even giving it a try? Of course, at this point my son is already in grade school and I won’t know the answer to this until a have another child, which isn’t any time soon.
How about you? Do you think you have what it takes to be a homeschooling mommy? Would you like to try?

I was just thinking about all the things I plan to do differently with my second child (when I have him/her). Among the changes I am thinking about making, replacing preschool with homeschooling is one of them. I really don’t want to commit to anything right now since I am nowhere near being pregnant with my second child, plus I have always said that I am not sure I have the patience to home-school.
So why am I event considering it? Well, I’ve started meeting a lot of other moms who home-school, and I’m starting to see some of its benefits. At the same time, the primary reason why we started sending my first son to preschool at a young age was because he’s an only child, and we were worried that he didn’t really know how to interact with other kids. I’m pretty sure that this is something I now know how to address, plus, my second kid obviously won’t be an only child, so there!
Coincidentally, just when my interest in homeschooling sparked, I learned about this upcoming workshop by The Learning Basket. I feel that this will be a great learning opportunity for parents like me who are even the least bit interested in learning more about homeschooling.
