Homeschooling Through Hard Times

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Sharing is caring!

Hard times! As much as we might like it to be, life is not all ponies, rainbows, and watercolor daisies.

Homeschooling Through Hard Times with Homeschooling IRLOn this episode of HomeschoolingIRL we discuss the issue of homeschooling when life gets hard. Difficulties can look different in every family – marital stress, tragedies, health challenges, financial loss – and we’ll consider how each of these hardships can put unusual stress on a homeschooling family.

What is our response? What should it be? Join us as we interview homeschooling mom and blogger Linda Difino, who shares her story of homeschooling through multiple hard times.

For the rest of the year, we will be running a “Best of” series of the Homeschooling IRL episodes. Many of these episodes were earlier episodes that you might have missed. Enjoy!

  1. Thank you for this! I had to stop homeschooling 2 of my kids because of my own burnout. I know God had his hand in wanting me to put my two in school and keep one at home He has been working in my heart in the most profound ways. God is redeeming me and teaching me and molding me into what he needs me to be. I am so glad that you talked about this and let people know it is ok to take a break from homeschooling if needed.
