The hardest part of homeschooling often isn't the homeschooling!

With a great curriculum like Sonlight, the teaching is the easy part! The harder part is clearing the hurdles to get started in the first place.

We’re here to help you push past these worries that many homeschool parents face. In this blog series, we’ll debunk the most common hurdles to getting started homeschooling.

We’ll give you tips to overcome and advice to thrive, plus we'll share stories of real homeschoolers who have cleared these hurdles.

We need two incomes. I can't work from home and homeschool.

It can be challenging to live on one income. The fear of losing income and incurring the costs of homeschooling sometimes feels like too big of a leap. You might be surprised to know that homeschooling can be done very economically.

Sometimes its just not possible for one parent to be at home full time. It takes some creative scheduling but homeschooling as a working parent is possible.

If you believe homeschooling is best for your family we are here to help you figure it out. The time you spend with your children learning as a family will be its own reward.

Contact a Sonlight Advisor for advice unique to your situation. And here are a few resources to help clear this financial hurdle.

I never thought I'd homeschool because I enjoy working, but Sonlight's Instructor's Guides make it easy to do both. I don't have to plan anything!  I open and start teaching which saves both time and energy. I can order all my materials in one place assured that my kids are getting a full, rich education despite our busy schedule.”
