Need a breather? Well, look no further. Read and Enjoy. :)


A Homeschool Mom's NON-Resolutions

1. I resolve to NOT try and make my children "perfect" homeschooling examples.

2. I resolve to NOT try and prove that I am a "perfect" homeschooling parent.

3. I resolve to NOT try and compare myself to every other homeschooling parent.

4. I resolve to NOT give up on expecting the best from myself.

5. I resolve to NOT give up on my students.

6. I resolve to NOT give up on my curriculum without giving it a serious try (2 weeks may not be a serious try - only you can determine what that is!)

7. I resolve to NOT get discouraged when I have bad days, but to call someone on the phone who may encourage me in some way (prayer, a cup of coffee, or just saying "it's okay"!).

8. I resolve to NOT forget to plug into a support group for my support and theirs!

9. I resolve to NOT forget that all Teachers get Teacher Work Days for a reason. You have control over yours. Take them!

10. I resolve to NOT make unbelievable and unacceptable New Year's Resolutions. ~from the "Homeschooler's Notebook"

 I like those.  But number 6 just isn't for me.  I'll kick a curriculum to the curb as soon as I think it isn't working for us.  I've stayed with the wrong thing for too long in the past.  Know when to let go.

Number 6 gets me from both sides. I have waited too long and I have not waited long enough. lol

 LOL, yeah I can see it biting me both ways too.  I think we all need to repeat some of those to ourselves.  Often.  :-)
