How can you get it all done as a homeschool mom? There are so many demands on your time and never enough hours in the day! In this episode, I address a reader’s question about the daily struggle to keep the household running smoothly when devoting so much time, energy, and mental focus on homeschooling and mothering.
There are weeks that are busier than others and you just cannot be home enough to get everything done. And yet it is so important that we remember that we need to be home in order to homeschool. In this episode of the All in a Homeschool Day podcast, I discuss why we need to make time to be home to homeschool as well as share some practical tips to help you do just that.
It is easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life and forget that sometimes our children feel left behind. When you take the important step of investing in your relationship with them, they are more likely to feel heard and open up about what is going on in their lives. Try these practical suggestions to help your children feel heard and increase your influence on their lives.
We’ve all been there. You are in the car for a trip or waiting in line at the grocery store or doctor’s appointment. I’m normally the mom who allows her children to find something to entertain themselves, but there are times when it’s difficult even for adults to be patient waiting in a confined space. Turn these times of waiting into learning opportunities with these fun math games to play in the car (or plane or train or line). They require no supplies and can be adapted for all ages. We’ve enjoyed them for years and have been surprised at the times our children have stumped us.
