So lately I've been using the phrase, "I'm so FRUSTRATED!" a lot. Turns out a lot of things frustrate me! I guess I'm just losing patience. :o Wondering if this is typical of homeschool moms out there???

Everyone gets frustrated now and again. :) Just take a deep breath, relax, and assess the situation. Burned out? Take a few days off or go on some field trips. Struggling with a certain course? Take a break from it or try something new. And, of course, just remember that things always get better. :)

Change What is not Working for You

I have found through the years of homeschooling, you have to find what works best for you and your family.

In the first year or two of homeschooling, I did have frustrations. It was usually because things were not going the way that I thought it should go.

I had to learn to relax and allow things to flow naturally. It is not always easy homeschooling, but it can be a very enjoyable time spent with your children.

What is frustrating you? Is it scheduling? Or, the focus of your children? Do you feel you are not accomplishing all that you should?

Think about what is causing the frustration. What can be done to make things go more smoothly?

Hope this helps give you some ideas!
