Homeschool Problems From FALL FAIL to SPRING SUCCESS

Hey Mocha Family,
I don't like to call the mistakes I make in homeschooling failure. The growth experienced from these mistakes testify of their value. However, struggles don't feel good and we are still looking for those good grades and happy looks on our kids faces day to day as proof of success.

I usually regroup by reflecting on the semester with my husband or by consulting friends. I watch the kids like a hawk and make my own assumptions, but I've never drawn them into a conversation to hear their perspective until now.

I learned so much. Check out the video to see how it went and leave me a comment down below about how you assess your performance.

Be blessed!

  1. I loved your video! We will be using HOD Resurrection to Reformation for the second time next year. Like you I love how it approaches history from so many different perspectives, but I can see how your daughter would feel the way she does at times. I love that how talked to your daughters, and they were the ones to tell you that you were getting it right when you weren't feeling like it :) Kids are so gracious sometimes aren't they? I've had experiences with mine like that too. I liked what you said about giving them an opportunity to read books outside of the history period. I've been doing that this year too. For literature I put a handful of books in front of him and he gets to choose which looks interesting. He has been loving that. Thank you for sharing!
