Not Prepared

by: Kaelyn

One hot, summer day in your backyard, a grasshopper, who was green and carried a violin and hat, was playing and singing. He came over to an ant. The ant was working, looking for some food.

Dear Homeschool Parent of young children

Dear Homeschool Parent of young children,

Stop.

Just stop.

Stop buying curriculum.
Stop patrolling Pinterest.
Stop looking at art supplies.
Stop reading online forums.
Stop it with the workbooks and the printouts.
Stop comparing your children to other people's.
Stop stressing out that your child might be "behind."
You do not need to "create a preschool" at home and you do not need a teaching degree.

How to Homeschool Outside the Home


I am an introvert. My daughter is not. She is the only extrovert in the house. She thrives on being with other people so we have had to work on finding a balance with her and her activities along with my need for peace at home to recollect myself.
