Persevering Through Tough Homeschool Days

When the going gets tough, the tough get going, right?  Is that how you feel when the homeschooling days are long?  Is that the pep talk you give yourself when the children are complaining about their work, they won’t do their work, or when that yellow school bus drives by the house?

Nah, me either.  I’m a bit short on homeschooling pep talks these days.  Instead this is what I hear myself saying more often than not…

I am done with school!  I am done with teaching!  I am done homeschooling.

I. am. done.

Man, oh man.  Have I been there!  Actually, I was there just a few months ago.

Come to think of it, I’ve been traveling the “I’m done” road for a few years.

If there’s one thing I can say I completely get…it’s being done with this homeschooling thing.  Few things try my patience like the day in and day out of homeschooling, and I have many days in which I’m ready to just give it up for good.

Throw in the towel.

Let someone else deal with the back talk, the complaints, the eye-rolls.

But I know homeschooling is it for us.  So, how do I press on in our homeschooling goals when I’m done with it?

The link below will take you to my top-secret tips on what I really do when homeschooling just isn’t going my way.

  1. Hi,

    I just wanted to encourage you in your homeschooling journey. Those days when I feel like it is time to take a break, I try to plan a break in the near future that we can look forward to. Sometimes it is a short 1 day break other times it is a week long. These days don’t mean they aren’t school days, sometimes we have a field trip or just enjoy staying at home having a cleaning/life skills day. Sometimes it’s mom who just needs a day to get back on track and then sometimes I take a half day to get myself back on track (it usually ends up being a whole day), and then I am more ready for the rest of the week.
    If you are on summer break, don’t forget to just take sometime to not be busy going all over the place, so Mom gets a little break, too.

    1. Thank you for your encouragement! A break is a must in our home when refreshment is needed. As a matter of fact, we’re in the middle of a break right now. 🙂
