Happy and Successful Homeschooling
Do something special each day with your children and your partner. And do something special for yourself, as well. When you lie down at night, you'll feel much more satisfied with your day. If you didn't get to Lesson 12 in the math book as you had hoped, but you did play tag with the kids this afternoon and joined in their laughter and jubilation, then this makes your day worthwhile. If dinner wasn't on the table at six o'clock sharp because you spent an hour sitting with your partner, engaged in meaningful conversation, then your day was still worthwhile. If you didn't get the curtains laundered today as you had planned, but you were able to soak in a bubble bath for twenty minutes, which was much more restful, then your day was worthwhile.
You still accomplished several things today. Plus, you were able to enjoy time with your children and your spouse, and to indulge yourself in a little relaxation time. The time for doing Lesson 12 in the math book, for getting dinner on the table, for laundering the curtains, will be there another day. But for today, and for every day, your children, your partner, and your self should take priority. You will be happier, your children will be happier, and your homeschool — and joy in your homeschool — will flourish as a result.
