If you are a homeschool mom, odds are, you have or will experience a burnout period where you feel like you just can’t anymore. When we start the school year off, we may have superhuman strength and the will to make it an awesome year. Towards the end or mid-year, you can just want to crawl up in a ball and cry. We can get so very close to giving up or get to a point where we feel like we should throw in the towel.

A homeschool mom at her breaking point can be toxic to the family unit and home life. We truly have the power to set the tone in our home. Sometimes that tone is a burnt one and you feel fried. Such is life, but you are not alone.
