Helpful Homeschooling Hints: Relax!

There is one thing that I have learned over the past few years and that is most days don’t go as planned. Learning is still going to happen even if it doesn’t happen in the way that we want or labored all summer to plan.

My hint for you today is to RELAX!

The past few weeks we have been dealing with sickness and the bookwork hasn’t happened as much as I would have liked, but the learning is still happening. There has been learning through dramatic play, designing their own games, art, and educational television. Learning is happening all the time whether we want it to or not. Think about all the ways that your kids are learning even when you aren’t “officially” hitting the books or following your carefully laid out schedule.

I am linking up with Helpful Homeschool Hints over at Many Little Blessings. Take a trip over there and read about Angie’s favorite free resources and see what other hints people are sharing in their posts.

  1. That is a great hint, Honey! I think the most common advice I give homeschoolers after homeschooling my kids through high school is that you don’t have to be perfect. I was amazed that the more relaxed I was with homeschooling, the happier we all were and the better the long-term results. Even if we could have crammed more information in another way, I don’t think my kids would have retained it as well – and I know they wouldn’t have the love of learning that they still have now as adults.

    Amen, amen, amen!

    I wish I could make myself relax a little more though, even though I know it’s what I need to do.
