Complete Guide for Stay-at-Home Moms: Homeschooling Resources

We have decided to homeschool preschool this coming Fall. I have always homeschooled to an extent because I have always created activities for my kids to encourage their learning-and to have fun since I am home with them all day. 

All stay-at-home moms are doing some level of homeschooling. Whether you are full-time homeschooling your children, supplementing at home after your child gets home from school, or just curious about whether homeschooling is for you, this resource list is packed with tips, activities and encouragement for the homeschooling mom!

Complete Guide for Stay-at-Home Moms: Parenting Tips

Considering how much time we spend with our kids from birth on, I think we stay-at-home moms earn a Master's degree in Parenting. If we think of all the hours we spend caring for our children, thinking about advice others give us, and reading up on the latest, greatest solution to our parenting troubles, I think we are masters of our subject!

This may be one of my favorite sections of the whole Complete Guide for Stay-at-Home Moms, because it is experienced moms, with different amounts of children, living in different places, who have experienced different events in their lives who ALL made the same choice to stay at home with their children. 

As you read these 60+ parenting tips, ideas and resources, remember that these are real moms, with their own individual view of life sharing what has worked (or not worked) for them with the hope that it can help you!

Complete Guide for Stay-at-Home Moms: When You Need Homemaking Tips

Despite popular opinion, life as a stay-at-home mom is not all lunches with the ladies and eating bon bons on the couch while catching up on our "soaps". (I think the last time I watched a soap opera was in high school!)

No, fortunately or unfortunately there is REAL work to be done as a mom, wife and homemaker

Yes, the real "dirty" work is necessary, so we have put together a resource to help make things a little easier, more stream-lined and possibly even better organized so you can have more time to spend doing the fun work of being a stay-at-home mom. 

(Although it is pretty fun when the bathroom is clean...for all of the 5 minutes that it lasts!)
