The Homeschool Battle




Surely I can't be the only one who seems to have these situations and moods come up that hurt my homeschooling soul.

Some, well most days we are good with our homeschooling but what about the days when it is a constant fight to get through?

What do you do?

For me I have learned over the years, 10 to be exact, that there is a culprit in my home that hasn't been took care of.

The majority of the time it is simply a horrible attitude that needs fixed, whether it is quite time with the Lord or quite time to reset the mind sometimes we just have to take a few minutes for ourselves and reset for the day.

Some days I find that we are just on different brain waves and something so very small can set this huge ripple off and all at once the tidal wave comes back for us all.

It is very important to keep a well established routine in my home because I have learned my children work better under these conditions. I will not lie because I am a very well routine person and it helps me too! 

Homeschooling doesn't have to be a battle everyday. Seek the Lord for his guidance on what needs changed in your family.

Satan wants nothing more than for me to give up and allow the world to suck my children and my family into the world's way of things.

I've never been one for popularity and acceptance so the world has never had a large appeal to me this way but sometimes my selfishness of alone time and quite time gets the best of me.

When I started homeschooling high school this year I was very tempted to place my oldest in public school because I was scared to death, but then I thought why would I not stand firm in his toughest years with him? It was a spiritual battle that I had to under go. I have seen so many homeschool families do just what I was thinking of doing and not get to see the fruit of all that hard labor they have poured in. I will fight for the heart and soul of my children and you should too!

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. (2 Timothy 4:7)
