In the last 9 years, I’ve come to know that homeschooling has a VERY cyclical schedule, especially if you’re in your first year or two.
February is quitting time.
It just is. That’s when everyone has had enough and sits down to count their failures as they start researching school enrollment requirements, drop-off co-ops, and the furthest boarding schools.
Why? A lot of reasons:
- You came in with high expectations and feel like nothing is working.
- You and the kids are bored to tears with your expensive, grade-A curriculum that the veteran homeschoolers have raved about.
- The kids are pushing back against everything educational.
- The outside pressure to “prove yourself” is getting to you.
- You haven’t been out of the house in days because you’re already “behind”.
- The novelty has worn off for everyone and you didn’t realize “it’d be like this”.
- You’re drowning in a sea of trying to keep up with life outside of schooling.
- And the list goes on…
If this is you what do you need? How can I help you reassess and meet you where you are? What isn’t working? What is? Where are you mentally?
