In this article/podcast, Sonya Shafer discusses how nobody prepares you for the difficulties of dealing with the "everyday-ness" of homeschooling and how much it can wear on you.

Have you ever noticed that often it’s not the academics that wear us down but the life issues in our homes? I’m not saying that planning, preparing, and overseeing lessons every day is a cake walk.
