You CAN homeschool your child, for free or frugal!
Homeschooling doesn’t have to be scary or difficult. I believe that a mother is often the best person to educate her own child, even without a teaching degree! I have a Master’s in Education degree, but I believe that doesn’t make me any better than any other homeschool mom without one.
You just might be your child’s best teacher. I’ve worked in the public school system, and although I’ve known some amazing teachers, a mother’s love and dedication cannot be underestimated. You are there for your child 100%, and you CAN give him the one-on-one attention he needs and deserves.
If you are invested personally in your child’s education, I am here to help! I’ve tried to write and research the BEST free and frugal homeschooling resources and encouragement for you here on the blog. And if you don’t see it, just email me or find me on social media to ask! I’m glad to help you and your child succeed.
