I am so glad you're here! So, you've had a bad homeschool day…or week…or maybe even month. But you want to fix it. You're not wallowing in self-pity and convincing yourself to pack it up and send the kids to public school. You're here because you want to find that magical reset button and jump all over it, aren't you?
Congratulations, you are right where you need to be. You've been knocked down, but you're ready to pull yourself up again and start fresh.
How do I know? Because I've been there.
If you'll remember not long ago, I publicly disclosed how incredibly horrible our first week of the new homeschool year was. If you missed it, you can read all about it here.
Well, I'm happy to announce that we are now halfway into our fourth week and we are all still alive, and I've resisted the temptation of the big, yellow bus.
Now, don't get me wrong, the past few weeks haven't been fairy tale perfect, but it was a vast improvement from our first week.
So, what changed?
I can't pin point one specific thing that has made the difference; it's been a mixture of adjusting to the new school year, and adjusting attitudes, but I have learned a few tricks that have helped us reset those more difficult days.
