Some things I wish I had known when I began homeschooling:
1) Put homeschooling first, for your kids sake
When I began homeschooling, I thought that I would somehow just add homeschool to my already busy life. It didn’t take long to realize that is impossible. There are only so many hours in the day! I came to the realization that in order to give my children a good education, it would have to be my first concern during “school hours.” I had to commit to the priority of educating my kids. I had to turn off the phone, avoid interruptions, and focus on my children—a very joyful occupation!
