How do you know if you need to alter your expectations?
Alter your expectations.
Be realistic. That statement right there is an unrealistic expectation, I know.
We, homeschool mamas, have lofty ambitions. For our kids, for their educations, and of us.
- Be realistic with what you can do in a day.
- Be realistic that everyone won’t always get along.
- Be realistic that some days you will feel like your homeschool was hijacked.
- Be realistic that your emotional atmosphere that needs to be attended to as well as your kids (and some days how they engage their emotional life affects you).
You have other relationships that need attending to (maybe even huge relationship challenges that require a lot of your energy or maybe you simply need to invest special time into them).
