Homeschool Expectations vs Reality (Parents)
Hopefully this video doesn't sound like a rant that makes you want to forget all of your rosy expectations about homeschooling. Personally, I really appreciate real talk because challenges come to everyone. Learning is all about trying things, making mistakes, and growing as you push your way through.
I am so glad we decided to start this adventure nearly two decades ago. It has been challenging enough at times to bring me to tears, but the benefits are greater than I imagined. I started out looking for the most perfect way to train up my kids, and discovered an imperfect situation with endless possibilities. My best advice to my younger self would be to just let it happen and stop worrying. My advice to myself today is to enjoy the imperfection of it all, and thank God I'm not the head honcho in charge!
