With the world tackling the Coronavirus pandemic, Karen Binedell, mum to ‘Our Travelling Family’, talks about homeschooling during lockdown.
What a crazy few months, weeks and days it has been. With almost the entire world on lockdown, life as we know it has changed completely. Our three children have been homeschooling with Wolsey Hall Oxford for close on a year and it’s one of the few things that has remained unchanged over the last couple of weeks.
Right now there is a whole new army of Mum’s and Dad’s out there homeschooling, not out of choice but rather necessity. If you happen to be one of them my advice to you is not to stress. Don’t agonise if your child is not keeping up with the workload or worry that they are falling behind. At this point in time the most important thing is their mental and physical wellbeing and if you manage to get a bit of schoolwork done that’s an added bonus.
For this month’s blog post I thought I would share some tips that may help you support your child’s homeschooling under these extreme conditions.
Please bear in mind that I’m no expert and something that works for one child may not necessarily work for another (we have three so I say this with confidence) but hopefully you can pick out bits and pieces that may assist you.Tips on Motivating Your Child
