If you suddenly find yourself in charge of supervising your kids’ schooling due to the coronavirus pandemic, this episode is for you!
This week, Jen talks to Claire Wood, who is both a teacher and a homeschooling mom. Claire shares some great tips about ‘temporary schooling from home,’ including managing expectations, how to stay flexible while complying with what your school requires, keeping rhythms vs. worrying about tight schedules, tips to keep kids motivated, boredom busters, and more.
Whether you’re homeschooling solo, trying to manage work from home along with home education, you’ll find tips to make the days easier. Biggest reminder: this is not a normal time, so don’t be so hard on yourself! We also talk about homeschooling while your military member is deployed or not available, and the importance of finding in-real-life support as a military spouse.
