Girlfriends’ Guide to Homeschooling: Am I being punished for having a special needs homeschooler?

If you aren’t aware an additional resource that I have for the homeschooling community around the globe is a YouTube channel and FB page for Homeschooling Girlfriends.

Girlfriends’ Guide to Homeschooling!

Topics center around generic concerns, information and insights as it pertains to homeschooling in general.

Oh my dear Homeschooling Girlfriend……. we can talk on a lot of subjects that are near and dear to our hearts and still have a long list to go. Can’t we?

This week our subject takes us back to special needs homeschooling.


No one understands more than a homeschooling Momma the challenges, hoops to jump through and the pushback one gets when homeschooling a special needs child. It can make you feel ask if ‘society’ and the systems that are in place are punishing you and your child just because they have a special needs.

Well…..let’s talk about this!
