At Your Large Family Homeschool, we believe there are as many "right" ways to homeschool as there are sizes and shapes of large families. If you're feeling stuck, it probably isn't because you're doing it "wrong". You likely just need some fresh ideas, some supportive encouragement, and usually a little bit of both!

We're here to support you in finding the best fit for you and your kids and to build your confidence in making those unique decisions for your own family!

Note: We are in the process of migrating articles, videos, and products from Homeschooling without Training Wheels to Your Large Family Homeschool. Some of your favorites may still be on the old site, but they'll be here soon!
