Anna Duggar talks about homeschooling her kids on a new blog post. She shared why she decided on the method for her kids and what other families should remember when they want to homeschool their children too.

In her new post on the Duggar Family blog, Josh Duggar's wife talked lengthily behind her decision to let her children be educated in a home school system. She shared that she has good credentials to take on the big responsibility of teaching her own children. She admitted that her friends and family also help her when things get overwhelming.

"After high school, I did an online Christian college program in early child education, but what has helped me the most has been taking advice from my mom, my mother-in-law, and other homeschooling veterans," Anna wrote. "It's great to learn from other women who are further down the road. I find women with teenage children who love the Lord or grandchildren who love the Lord, and I seek to learn from them."

She also clarified that not all families are the same and therefore, what homeschooling techniques that will work for one family may not be applicable to another. "It's also important to realize that just because something worked for one family, that doesn't mean it's going to work for you," she said.

It takes a lot of guts and determination to be Anna Duggar these days. The mom recently faced a lot of backlash from staying committed to Josh, in spite of all the controversies he was in the middle of, which led to their family's reality TV show, "19 Kids and Counting" to be cancelled. 

"I know that there are those who feel I have every right to walk away from this marriage, and I respect other people's views but in my heart, when I got married, I vowed to God first and then to Joshua, 'for better or worse, 'till death do we part,'" Anna said on "Jill & Jessa: Counting On," a three-part spin-off of "19 Kids" focusing on the sisters' respective families. 

Financial problems aggravate the situation too. A new report by the Hollywood Take claimed that the entire family is suffering the brunt of Josh's actions more and more. Even though there were speculations that TLC would soon allow the family to have another TV show, the network seems to be in reality, dragging their heels on making a final decision about this. As such, the Duggar net worth continues to dwindle.
