You don’t have to do it all

How many of us wake up thinking we have to do this, this, and this? I have news for you, you don’t have to do it all. We feel overwhelmed because we think we should save the world. Some days, your kid may just read a book and you need to be okay with that.

Helpful Tips for the Overwhelmed Homeschool Mom

Take some time off

The world tells us to not take time off, but our kids tell us that they need the time off school. Taking time off from school allows you to invest in your children. Your kids are more than just little robots who need to learn. They need to explore and be cuddled by their mama from time to time. A day off for a lazy day or even a fun field trip won’t hurt a thing!

Talk to a fellow homeschooling mama

If you’re feeling overwhelmed with the thought of homeschooling, you’re not alone. Talk to another mom and know there is someone else out there dealing with the same thing as you. Get out what is bothering you and speak about what’s on your heart.

You’re not a bad homeschooling mom because you’re overwhelmed. It just means you want the best for your kids. Remember that homeschooling is an adventure. It’s a journey that is unique to your own family.
