Listen to “CHM056:Avoiding Mid-Semester Homeschool Burnout” on Spreaker.
Homeschool burnout – we all go through it. Because it’s typical for most homeschoolers, just know that you’re not alone. In this podcast episode, I share two tips that have helped to overcome homeschool burnout each year.
Tips that have helped me to overcome mid-semester homeschool burnout.
- If it’s not working, scrap it. Feel free to switch out the curriculum if it doesn’t work or put it on the shelf for a while and come back to it at a later time. There is nothing written in law anywhere that says you have to keep using a curriculum that doesn’t work. Sometimes these changes might need to occur in the middle of a semester, and if so, that is okay. Do what is best for your family and keep rolling. Try something new.
- Network, collaborate, and enjoy community. We need an outlet for motivation and to avoid loneliness. It’s imperative that we collaborate with others and gain encouragement and strength from one another. I soak up the energy of networking with others.
For example, as a result of being online, collaborating and networking, I met Mahogany Homemaker – so never underestimate the power of meeting up with other homeschoolers online. You never know who you might meet in person one day.
