Getting Off the Homeschool Hamster Wheel
- Wednesday, January 16, 2013
There are really two main strategies needed to stay off the homeschool hamster wheel. First, families need to make sure they define homeschooling success the same way God defines success. I will be a successful homeschool mom if I raise children who glorify God and extend God’s love to others. Realizing that the best way to accomplish these goals is within a family, we must then make our lives and activities as family-centered as possible.
I am often asked how I manage to do all I do. The answer is I don’t do anything alone. I have a whole team, composed of my servant-hearted husband and my five children, and we work together to accomplish common goals. Since we work at having a unified vision and common goals rather than seven separate visions and goals, we manage to have a full and productive schedule while staying off the homeschool hamster wheel.
