Have you said, “I don’t have the patience to homeschool!”? If so, then this episode is just for you!
As I talk about my experiences with developing patience and the journey God has led me on, I will share practical tips that will help you develop the patience and mindset to successfully homeschool your children.
And really, let’s be honest…we all need more patience. Having more patience will help us not only be a better home educator but a better parent as well. And even if we have been working on developing patience, we can always use a reminder to be more intentional.
What we talked about
- Pray and ask God to help you develop patience.
- Examine why you do not have patience. Getting to the root cause of your beliefs can help you begin to align your beliefs with the truth so you can begin to develop patience.
- Learn to become a thermostat instead of a thermometer so you can help control the atmosphere of your home and reduce the amount of patience you need.
- Revise your schedule so you have more margin and are less rushed and busy.
- Plan how you will get a respite. Having a plan in place to allow you to take a break from the demands of parenting and homeschooling is essential!
