Homeschooling and Working Full Time. Is it Possible?

Before we emigrated to New Zealand and were living in England, homeschooling or home education whatever you wish to call it, was something that had always interested me. Two things stopped me. Having a huge mortgage meant that we couldn’t survive on one wage alone. I owned and ran a café at the time, and I certainly wasn’t going to take two kids under 7 with me to work. Can you imagine?

It’s Not Fair.That’s​ Right Kid. It Ain’t​.

It's not fair. I won't tell you what my mother used to retort with when I used to bellow this at her from the upstairs landing. All I'll say was it involved a gentleman with no underpants who originated from Timbuktu. No PC parenting when I was a girl. It's not fair....
