Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff When Homeschooling

Don't Sweat The Small Stuff

Contrary to popular belief, homeschooling is a job in itself. You are no longer sending your kids to school to be taught by someone else, you are the teacher. With that comes large amounts of stress because you now must fill multiple roles in your home life. Homeschooling, taking care of the house, chef, referee, maintenance, therapist, maid, taxi driver etc. Many of you are also working a job from home or going to school to better your career path. That’s a lot of additional stress, and I have no doubt that you are probably feeling it.

You want to do the best at each and every job that you have, but unfortunately when you have too much on your plate, sometimes things begin to slip and you begin to feel overwhelmed and frustrated that you aren’t accomplishing all the things. First of all, you aren’t meant to accomplish all the things. You are one person. Yes, you are a champion but you shouldn’t mentally beat yourself up for not being able to get everything done in one day.

Prioritize what is important, and let go of the things that are driving you crazy. What does that look like? In Episode 13 of The Schoolio Podcast, Sathish shares with us what that looks like for his family. He says “My wife hates to cook”, anyone else feeling that? Raise your hand! They decided years ago to be a ‘take-out’ family. He said that they cut spending in certain areas, like groceries and then apply that extra money to their take-out plan. This way, his wife doesn’t become stressed and they still eat healthy food.

Maybe you’re thinking ‘Well, I cannot afford take-out every night, how am I supposed to do that?’ Try this: Pick a day of the week that you know your workload is the lesson. Maybe Saturday or Sunday. On that day, prep at least 4 meals for your family. Now put them in the freezer! On the nights that you just don’t have the energy to cook, pull out one of those frozen meals that you have previously made and warm it up! Now you have dinner without all the stress.
