Do any of you home school and work? We are facing some really big life changes and there is a possibility I will need to work, at least part time. My kids are 10, 6, 3, and 1. They have never been to a school. I would rather them not go to a public school and I just don't think we will be able to swing a private school. My 6 and 3 year old daughters are autistic and I worry about them not getting the support they need/deserve in a public school, and being labeled as problem children.
I do. Z worked 8-4, so I homeschool in the mornings. I work 5-9 shifts a few nights a week. Sometimes if our day goes longer than planned or if we have any distractions, I write down lesson plans and Z will usually help out if I have to go to work.
Mine are 7 and 4.
I support homeschooling and Z and I had to decide how we were going to make it work if I had a job and this way works for us.
I picked up a part time job in November to help with a tight time. Now, I think I will hold onto it until we have our savings replenished. I have 4 kids, too. 12,8,4,2. It can be hard but not toooooo hard. 8)
I actually always worked part-time, roughly 20 hous per week. But it was at a gym so the kids could come. About 3 years ago I had to stop working outside the home due to my medical issues. But now I work on commission for my craft pieces. It's hard to juggle both, but it is totally possible.
I work part time at the hospital (4 days a week). My mom keeps the kids 2 days out of the week, and my husband is home the other 2 days (he works for himself so it's flexible). I send what they need to do, and check it when I get home. On my days off we add in science and history, and I focus on teaching them new things or reviewing things they need more help with.
I work full time and am a full time student myself. My husband is a stay at home dad and does the homeschooling. My mom may move in with us and if she does then my husband may get a job. We will try to do semi-opposite shifts so someone can be home most of the day.
