We don’t need more tricks or tools;

we need help coping & keeping up.

Homeschooling is important work. That is precisely why it is exhausting, perplexing, and sometimes downright hard. We are both mom and teacher, comforter and instructor, cuddler and slave-driver – ricochetting between responses and children, it’s no wonder we’re tired at the end of the day. And when it’s time for a new day to begin, sometimes we don’t even want to.

Too often, we

  • give in to a sluggish feeling and grow more and more apathetic and listless.
  • get locked into unproductive arguments with our children over their work.
  • give up on our plans in discouragement.
  • greet each morning with a grimace instead of a game-face.

These are mindset problems, mental attitude obstacles. They won’t be fixed with a new curriculum, a new checklist, or a new schedule.

Instead, we need an attitude shift.

With the right perspective, we

  • can get ourselves moving in the morning.
  • can handle our children’s fussing and frustration.
  • can hold our course through temptations and trials.
  • can still smile, even when it’s hard.

A new perspective can be built with concrete practices.

You’ve read blog posts that give you a swift kick. The effect doesn’t last.
You’ve read good books that inspire you. They’re hard to apply to a real homeschool day.
You’ve changed up your routines, but there are still tantrums and tears. And it’s not always only the kids who lose it.

I’ve been there, done that. I long for consistency and for competence. I want to stop the roller-coaster, do the work, and do it well.

You, too?
