When it comes to homeschooling there is no magic method. Your children are unique and your family is unlike any other family. So you won’t find some special method or approach that is best.
You need to find a way to make homeschooling work for you.
Put away any preconceived ideas as to what homeschooling should look like, and step into the day-to-day of homeschooling and adapt it to work for your family.
Maybe you like desks with educational items up on your walls. Or maybe it works better for you to learn all over the place. Try out different things and see what works best. We have done many different things and tend to go through phases where we are at desks and phases where we are all over the place. Whatever works, right?
Schooling doesn’t have to start after breakfast. It can start after lunch or in the evening. Family schedules can vary. Make it work for you.
Do you love being on the go all the time or do you prefer to be home quite a bit? There is no one right way. Find your own groove…your own balance.
Working while homeschooling can require greater flexibility, but this is where you can make homeschooling work for you. Whether you need to have your child do more work independently, spend more time schooling on weekends, outsource to community or online classes, or be sticky with your schedule, you have options. Create something that works for you.
If something isn’t working, change it. Homeschooling flow can take some time to achieve and once you get there you will find periods where you need to create a new flow.
Homeschooling is an outside-the-box approach to education. Don’t start thinking that there is one set way to do this. There isn’t. Stay outside-the-box and design something that works for you.
