Life lessons I have learned from home schooling kids for ten plus years.
❤️Number one, you gotta pace yourself.
It is a marathon, not a Sprint.
You cannot expect to get all of this stuff done and have all these goals met with in the first year. Or you going to have burn out year one.
❤️Number two, you got to take care of your body and your physical mind as a mom. You need to take care of your mental state and mental health. You have got to learn to love working out. You have to Learn to eat healthy. -Really keep that energy sustained energy. Because you are the thermostat of the attitudes in the house. You become the thermostat of everybody else’s emotional wellness.
❤️number 3: please have low expectations when it comes to academics.
I have a master's degree in education and might as well just throw that out the window because I have learned that my kids are all these different places, all these different levels and I have to just meet them at their level. If they're not ready to enter into a new skill set, I have to be okay with just come back to it- come back later. It’s have learn to do something else. I have learned that it’s Literally throwing all the grades and ABC grading scale out the window. I just have to do whatever they want to do at their interest level and make it fun. Then it's all going to pan out then.
