A note from Jamie: We wrote this series last summer, but I thought that revisiting it at the start of a new school year might be an encouragement. So check out some of the posts below and remind yourself that even if you’re facing something tough, you can still make homeschooling work for you and yours. Be blessed!
Ya’ll, homeschooling ain’t always easy. And it isn’t always happier ever after.
Sometimes it’s downright tough. You know, don’t you?
This world has troubles and homeschooling families aren’t immune to them. Tough marriage seasons, rebellious children, cancer, miscarriages, depression, financial struggles, midlife crises.
You get the picture.
You don’t always read about these topics on blogs, because well, they’re personal. They often involve our dearly loved children, too, whose privacy we respect and want to protect.
The danger of not writing about these situations, however, is that it creates an illusion that our lives are all peaches and cream.
Roses and buttercups. Always well-behaved children and energetic moms and dads joyfully learning together 24/7.
