5 ways to increase your child's learning by the end of the day
Written by Jamie Martin of Simple Homeschool and Steady Mom

“Love of learning” can sound like a vague, mysterious, unattainable concept.

We desperately want our kids to have one, of course, but how do we kindle it in the midst of the busyness, routines, and responsibilities of homeschooling life?

Thankfully, a love of learning isn’t as complicated as it sounds, and we can take practical, small steps to nurture or repair it.

In fact, here are five ways you can increase your child’s love of learning by the end of this very day! (Feel free just to pick one or two and try the others later.)

A homemaker’s overwhelm

A homemaker's first panic attackWritten by Jamie Martin of Simple Homeschool and Steady Mom

It was 1998. Steve and I had been married only a few months, and we’d moved to England right after our honeymoon.

His aunt and uncle (who I had only met a few times) had arrived for a visit. They sat in our tiny apartment’s living room–on the borrowed, floral-patterned sofa that forced you to plant your feet on the floor to prevent sliding off.

I stood around the corner in our closet-sized kitchen, charged with a simple task as a newly married wife: make the tea.

Make the tea?! We’re talking about England here! They’ve kind of built an entire culture around the beverage, and here I was an American girl from the south who had only drunk the stuff poured over ice and drenched in sweetener!

God must have been surprised at the torrent of sudden prayers that arose over Bournemouth that day. His grace was sufficient for me, though, as either I made the tea okay…or everyone was just too polite to say anything.

Either way, I survived.

The details vary, but we all have a story like that. A tale of feeling out of our element in homemaking, marriage, parenting, or homeschooling–a moment when we realize just how much we still have to learn.

4 simple steps to stress free homemaking
I am documenting these homemade Easter pies as Internet proof that miracles do in fact sometimes happen in my kitchen! Considering I couldn’t make pasta when I got married, I can’t stop bursting with pride over these babies. 

A homeschooling lifestyle adds even more to the challenges of everyday homemaking: laundry, meal planning, organizing, and cleaning.

Does staying on top of piles of clothes needing to be folded, the ever-flowing cycles of dishes in and out of the sink, and the decision fatigue of dinner plans get you down sometimes?

Hand raised here!
