Homeschool Science Tip - Keep going.
You have probably heard the saying a thousand times, life, parenting, homeschooling is not a sprint - it's a marathon.
But it wasn't until I started running that I truly understood the difference between these two. It's not just the length - it's about your attitude, your mental and physical conditioning, and your fixation on a goal that help you to keep going through the long run.
And the same is true with homeschooling. This month, I want to encourage you to keep going!
- Keep going with maintaining a positive attitude. Remind yourself that you are capable of homeschooling your child. You know them best and can tailor their education to enhance their strengths and shore up their weaknesses.
- Keep going with conditioning your mind and body. Educate yourself. Read daily. Take care of your body. Do some kind of physical activity each day. And don't forget to rest.
- Keep going with focusing on your goal. Press on to the goal you set when you started your homeschooling journey!
There are bound to be moments when you feel like you can't make it . . . but keep going. Keep placing one foot in front of the other. Keep doing one day after another. Be present. Be teachable. And be consistent.
And I know that the sum total of your efforts will be worth it in the end.
