Reading homeschooling quotes is the quickest way I know to turn the hopelessness of a bad day into the inspiration to improve it. Here are over 100 of my favourite homeschooling quotes to help you bolster your positivity and motivation, encourage and inspire you – save them, pin them, share they with your friends (and people who need a little deschooling – here’s looking at you, in-laws) print them and stick ’em on your wall, scribble them in your journal, or use them as your mobile wallpaper!
