". . . don't try to do it alone. Seek companionship and encouragement from others, and walk together. I had a homeschool friend with boys slightly older than mine. We stuck together like glue, and offered each other support when it seemed like the whole universe was aligned against us. I'm telling you, it made all the difference in the world!
Looking back, my friend and I provided each other with four critical ingredients for homeschool success: a willing ear to listen, a gentle voice to correct, a wise word to encourage, and a warm heart to accept. With these critical elements in place, I believe even the most challenging homeschooling experience can succeed through high school graduation. I've seen it — in my life and the lives of others." — Lee B. of The HomeScholar Helper
"The other thing that really got me through my very difficult first year, was networking online and finding moms I could relate to. My circle of friends online has been such a huge support to me through the years." — Carisa of 1+1+1=1
