Homeschool Not Working? Answers to Your Biggest Homeschool Issues

We’re about half-way through the homeschool year. How’s it going in your home?

Let’s face it–sometimes our homeschool is not working. At least not working as well as we’d hoped it would. We run into big homeschool issues (things we never thought we’d deal with!) and we need to make changes in our homeschool. Like now.

Here are 35 areas where you made need help with your homeschool, along with links to Your Vibrant Family posts that give encouragement, tips and ideas on these topics. I pray they encourage you!

We're about halfway through the homeschool year, and WOW, was it good to look through this homeschool assessment and get answers to some of those things that are not working in our homeschool. Love how real these answers are!
