CHM056:Avoiding Mid-Semester Homeschool Burnout

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
