It’s no small task to decide how we will educate our children. It’s a huge honor, bestowed upon us by a mighty God, and it can sometimes be overwhelming. We can struggle with not knowing how to schedule our day, having appropriate expectations, unexpected life events, personality conflicts, learning differences… There’s so much that can “pop” up that makes homeschooling a little more complicated than we thought it would be.
The truth of the matter is, we almost all threaten to leave our child at the bus pick-up from time-to-time. Everyone has a bad day! Sometimes bad days can turn into bad weeks, and a LOT of doubts, fears, worries, and insecurities can begin to creep their way into our hearts and minds. I know what it feels like to meet with unexpected circumstances that leave you bearing this heavy question: Should I quit homeschooling? I don’t want you to walk through this process alone.
I have developed an 18 page workbook to coincide with a 5-Part series about questions to ask when you’re considering walking away from homeschooling. Why? Because I’ve been there. I’ve quit. And I learned a few important lessons along the way. Why 5 parts? Because this decision is THAT important.
Follow this link to get started exploring this meaty series and gain access to this (FREE!) thorough workbook. Grab a cup of coffee, your Bible, and a quiet corner and get ready to work your way through this dilemma.
Note: If you’ve used my “Surviving to Thriving” workbook previously, some of this content is very similar, but with a different aim and therefore several different questions to work through and consider.
