Letting Go of Homeschool Perfection

When we first began homeschooling nine years ago, I was determined to give my children an awesome homeschool experience. I planned projects and activities, spent hours making visuals and learning aids, and stocked up on manipulatives.

Never mind that I had three young school-age children and two toddlers. I had my heart set on spending hours reading aloud and making learning fun.

And then reality set in. Join me at Free Homeschool Deals to learn more about letting go of homeschool perfection.

    So ture! We only have two but my expectations on myself for myself were still quite high and were overwhelming at times. I prayed, talked over my list of what I expected of myself and between the two of them I was able to grow and learn that the most imporant thing was to focus on God and our children. Don’t try to get out to every scocail event or have our little ones in all of the mini sport activities. Just be and allow them to be, getting them involved in things can be good but overdose is not just for the parents it’s also for the kids. A little goes a long ways. Thanks. Sincerely, Mommy of two growing blessings & so much more!

  2. Judy, thank you for your honesty! You have really encouraged me.

    • I’m so glad you found this encouraging, Amy! It’s so easy to feel like we’re not measuring up to what everyone else is doing. Yes, it’s worth pursuing excellence in homeschooling, but sometimes “less” is truly “more.” You’re not alone!
