If you and I sat next to each other to enjoy a cup of coffee together, and you were to ask me what it takes to homeschool, I'd say, "Perseverance." In What Does It Take, Pt. 1, we talked about the commitment that it takes on the part of the parents. Yes, homeschooling is a huge commitment.
To teach day in, day out, week in, week out takes tenacity and an attitude that says, "I'm going to stick to this!" And that's hard—especially when we don't always see immediate results or fruit.
