I meet so many homeschoolers who are doing a great job but are still wracked with a total lack of confidence! They are overwhelmed with where to start at each new stage. Some parents love the idea of homeschooling but they have 101 reasons why they could never do it.
As a former public school teacher and current homeschool mom of five kids, I want to shout from the rooftops that parents are uniquely gifted to teach their own kids! You can do it!
The key to minimizing overwhelm is knowing where to start.
How do I start to homeschool when my kids are little?
How do I homeschool multiple ages?
How do I take care of my home responsibilities with all these kids who never leave?!
How do I plan out my year? My week? Help! I need help with today.
What if my personality is very different than my kids?
These questions and so much more are answered in my online courses, Homeschooling 101 & Homeschooling 102.

Great Course for anyone thinking about homeschooling! Abby’s approach is very clear cut and easy to understand.

I highly recommend this course to anyone who is considering homeschooling! S.M.
This is a must have for anyone that is considering homeschooling. It is so down to earth and realistic. I’m glad to know that I’m not alone with all my “but..” questions. Abby was key in helping me overcome my concerns and realizing I don’t need to be perfect or fit into a homeschool box, but that we can adapt homeschooling to fit our families uniqueness’. Thank you for the encouragement, we can do it! K.D.
