Active Duty Homeschooling

Homeschooling while on active duty can be challenging, but don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Learn to focus that same flexible attitude that you apply to your military member’s work hours. Relax. Accept that sometimes the book you want is going to be packed and sometimes you must go on a field trip without your spouse. Make it a great adventure, one that teaches your kids from real life rather than just books.
