One of the downsides to homeschooling is losing that second household income. You don't get paid to stay home and teach your children. But you need to earn money with a job that doesn't detract from your homeschooling duties or your family.

How to Make Money While Homeschooling

Homeschooling parents can supplement their income by taking on part-time jobs that align with their homeschooling duties such as after-school care, blogging about homeschooling, selling homeschool resources, creating a YouTube channel, making and selling Christmas decorations, or teaching English online.

Frequently Asked Questions

Homeschooling is a big job. But if you need some extra money rolling into the household, you might want to take on more work. We’ve given you a list, but in case you have more questions, we’ve answered some below.

1. Do I have to pay taxes when I sell online?

You will need to pay taxes for any profit you make from selling online. The platform will report your earnings to the IRS and send you a Form 1099. You then must file it with your taxes.

2. Do I need liability insurance to provide childcare in my home?

Part-Time Jobs for Homeschooling Parents

When one parent stays home, money gets tight really fast. If you're experiencing this you might want to consider a side hustle.

Some part-time jobs like teaching English online, align well with your homeschooling routine. If you're a writer or want to outsource it, you should blog.

A YouTube channel can be a fun way to earn extra money.

Regardless of what you do, you'll be carving out time from a busy schedule, so ensure it's a job you'll enjoy.
