An e-Book for Encouraging Mom’s who are Homeschooling an Only Child
We are a unique breed. The family that has an only child. Look around, most families have 2 0r 3 children. Then in homeschool world we are quite the exception. Even stereotype concludes that homeschooling families mostly have 5, 6 or 10 students. So an only child who is homeschooled is considered strange.
People worry, they think that if you homeschool a single child they will miss out. They worry that a child without siblings won’t learn to interact with others. Strangers feel they have the right to tell you that you are depriving your child if you don’t provide them with siblings or worse yet a public school education.
Are you a homeschooling the only child in your family?

Do you often feel left out, alone and as if no one understands the unique role that you find yourself in? Let me tell you, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. In fact, I’ve recently discovered several homeschooling mom’s of only children. Some online and some in real life and just at a time when I needed them most. I met Amy Stults in blogging circles and we later realized we live in the same area and have since become friends and participate in several homeschooling activities together.
A Book for Homeschool Moms of Only Children
In this book you will find two moms who share the joy of being a mom to an only. They encourage and support your decision to homeschool and they reassure you that you are making the right decision. You will also find quotes from other moms (including me) along the way who share the joys and benefits of being a mom to an only. There are also quotes from children (including Little Man) who, with much insight share the beauty of being an only child. They share a perspective that is both surprising and wise.
Personally, for me, reading this book brought a measure of peace to my heart concerning being the mom of ONE. I love my son and am truly grateful to have him in my life. But, I had dreamed of multiple children, until reading this book I had not found comfort in being a mom of an only. The reality is God designed my family and He designed it to be perfect with an only child. Finding peace in God’s plan has helped me to come to terms with my reality, to seek His Joy for my life and to lay aside my own sorrow over what was not to be.
