Afraid homeschooling is hard? Like anything, there are ways to make it a lot easier. Check out these tips to keep your sanity when homeschooling.
Sometimes, my kids are assholes.
There. I said it. I think there’s a myth out there that homeschool moms are somehow more patient than other moms. At least in my case, that’s completely untrue. I would love to pretend that I am one of those Zen, Daniel Tiger’s Mom kind of mamas, but I’m not.
I believe that homeschooling is the best educational solution for our family, though, and so I power through on the days that I want to sell the kids on eBay.
If you’re a homeschooling mama who’s here because life has gotten so tricky, you’re wondering why you ever decided to have kiddos in the first place, I see you. You’ve got this. Mama, if instead you dream if homeschooling, but are afraid you’re not up to the challenge, I hope you’ll take this as a giant pep talk.
All of us struggle with homeschooling sometimes, but here are 14 tips you can use to make life a little easier.
Make time for you
It’s easy to burn out when you’re home with the kids All. The. Time. The secret to keeping your sanity is to make sure that you have some space in your day just for you. How the heck do you manage that?
You insist on it.
Your personal time might happen when kids are napping, watching a cartoon, or playing all alone. Cultivate independence in your kids, teach them to respect boundaries, and make sure everybody learns the value of quiet time.
