Any idea where I would be able to find information on if my state allows this...we're in IL.

Re: HS possible for WOHM?

Check for information on your state laws. It looks to me like it would be possible because your regulations are simple. In my state I could only homeschool my own children and those directly related to me (nieces, nephews). But in other states I've known families who have watched children for working parents and had the kids work along side their own children. Each child's parents were directly responsible for all legal paperwork and such. It also looks like in your state you can claim an education tax credit for some homeschool supplies.

I'm trying to figure out the same thing.

I'm a single mom, and right now I live with my parents and work very few hours a week, and a little stuff from home. Im also going to school mostly online.

Ds is 3 now, but I have no idea where I will be 2yrs from now as far as where we will live, my work status, what my mom will be doing (she is a retired teacher), etc.

Re: HS possible for WOHM?

we do it. dh works 40-50 ours out of home, i work 24 hours out of home. we do work opposite shifts. it can be hard at times. but i think the homeschooling family to sit is a great idea. i would do it!! also consider that homeschooling takes far less time than public schooling. its pretty easy to do a few lessons/activities in the evening and a fun educational outing on the weekend!
