The novelty has worn off
In the first few days and weeks of homeschooling there is often plenty of excitement and motivation. Mum and Dad are eager to do their best to support. There is the new school environment and the lack of uniform. And the promise of more ‘free time’ than ever before excites the kids.
But then the novelty wears off, and both parents and children alike realise that homeschooling isn’t the easy option it’s sometimes perceived to be. Homeschooling takes dedication, support, perseverance, understanding, patience and the ability to continuously adjust.
But if you stick with it, the rewards are endless. Children who are confident, capable and independent. Children who follow their own path, realise their potential and excel. Children who are happy.
