Why Do Homeschooling Alone?

Homeschool is a journey filled with many challenges. A rewarding journey, to be sure, but one that requires time, dedication, and hard work. Some families who opt to homeschool their children decide to go it alone. After all, one of the reasons you decided to homeschool was so you could customize your child’s education and manage it on your own. But homeschooling by yourself is easier said than done. Having a support system is critical when it comes to homeschooling–oftentimes that comes in the form of a homeschool co-op.
