That’s OK! Not every school teacher teaches every subject! For the elementary grades, a textbook with a teachers guide will give you the structure and the teaching tools that you need. When your child reaches high school, that can be the time to call on subject specialists to help you out! You can reach out to your friends, family, faith community, homeschool groups, local networks, and online communities to meet your child’s needs in a unique and personalized way. For an added boost to your confidence, keep in mind that homeschooling uniquely melds two of the strongest predictors of academic achievement: parental involvement and one-on-one learning.

First, you might be surprised to discover that the typical homeschool day—especially for elementary-aged children—takes a lot less time than it does in a traditional school setting.

But your instinct to consider the time commitment is right on. Homeschooling is a big investment for you as a parent. It involves taking full responsibility for your child’s education—planning out their school year and field trips, arranging for testing or other assessments, recordkeeping, figuring out what parts you will teach and what parts you might delegate to a tutor, a co-op, another parent, or an online or local course, etc.

And you’re already wearing a lot of hats—that’s true, too! Homeschooling is incredibly flexible—that gives you the beautiful opportunity to completely customize your homeschool schedule around your child’s learning pace and interests, your family’s calendar, and unique learning opportunities.
