Homeschooling Quotes:
Humor and Encouragement

Homeschooling quotes and humor are just what you need sometimes!

A quick injection of John Holt or John Taylor Gatto can be just the encouragement you need when things seem a little tough.

Homeschool Quotes: John Holt

I thought we'd start with some of my favorite quotes from the iconic John Holt.

john holt quote

If I need some encouragement, I often look back to what he says because he puts things so clearly you can't fail to remind yourself why you chose homeschool in the first place.

Homeschool Humor

I'm going to put some quotes from my children William and Catherine in the hope that it will inspire you to share with us funny stories which have brought a smile to your homeschool day.

One way we can all help each other is by lightening the load; that feeling of responsibility is one of the bad things about homeschooling that can be overwhelming, and humor is a great way to lift your spirits.

Here are a few classics from our homeschool humor:

William and Catherine
  • Catherine: "I'm not clever at everything Mum." Mum: "I'm not clever at everything either. No-one is clever at everything. I can't do William's K'Nex." Catherine: "But you are clever at cleaning."
  • William: "I don't like your Shepherd's pie Mum it's got too much vegetation in it."
  • William: "I do like lots of different sorts of food Mum, just nothing that's cooked at home."
