How do you get it all done in a day? (Part 2)

One of the top questions homeschooling parents have is, “How many hours each day should I homeschool my child?” In this post, we want to encourage you that regardless of how many hours you plan to homeschool, failing to actively meet that goal doesn’t mean you’ve failed to educate your child properly.

We recently released a blog with a response to the question, “How do you get it all done in a day?” This is a companion to that post, offering another homeschooling parent’s response to the question. Unsurprisingly, her answer is not much different—that is, you can’t get it all done in a day!
