Weekly Homeschool Accountability starts July 19

On Sunday, July 19, 2020, EPIC Homeschool Network will be launching our Weekly Homeschool Accountability group in our Online Patreon Community. It’s hard doing homeschooling on your own!  Sometimes you just need support.
The purpose of the Weekly Homeschool Accountability is to support and be supported by a community of homeschool moms in a tangible way. If this sounds like something you could benefit from then sign up for a sneak peek today!

WEEKLY LIVE VIDEO CHAT

We will meet once a week via live video chat for 50 – 60 minutes.

 

BRING YOUR OWN GOALS

Each homeschool mom will come with their OWN goals for their homeschool.  Whether it’s to create the meal plan for the week or month, create the lesson plan for the week or month, grade assignments, etc.

SHARE & GET SUPPORT

We will have a 3 – Minute Highlight where we share tips on meal planning, grading/recording, self-care, lesson planning, etc.. We will then break out into groups where each homeschool mom will then share their goals.

WORK IT

After we share, then we work!  Each mom will work on their own homeschool  goals live for 50 minutes! We stay on the line together and get it done!

CELEBRATE TOGETHER!

After the 50 minutes are up we share what we accomplished with each other, celebrate together and log off until next time.  (You may not finish all your goals during the session and that’s okay!  The idea is to jump start you towards your goals)

If this sounds like something you could benefit from then sign up today!  Email us at info@epichsn.org if you have questions or call 1-678-744-3407.

10 Ways to Avoid Homeschool Stress

Young Woman Thinking

Are you running around with your head chopped off?  Have you found yourself wondering “What did I get myself into?”  Have you recently asked the question “Am I stressed or blessed?” when it comes to homeschooling?

I was at a GHEA Conference a few years ago when I heard a speaker Sharon Grimes talk about how to avoid being stressed out. As I reviewed my notes I realize that this was something I needed to revisit and share with everyone.

10 Ways to Avoid Homeschool Stress

  1. Don’t neglect your morning manna.
    • No Bible then No Breakfast/Facebook/TV
  2. Keep the right relationship with your family
    • Your Spouse- have a regular date time together and be creative NOT expensive, have a “weekend to remember” once a year.
    • Your Children- remember that children ARE your MOST important work.
  3. Remember WHY you are homeschooling.
    • Deuteronomy 6:4-7- If we don’t teach our children to follow Christ, the world will teach them NOT to.
  4. Choose curriculum that will work for YOU and for EACH child.
    • There is no such thing as the “PERFECT” curriculum.  Pray and ask God to help you
    • Jeremiah 33:3.
    • What are your homeschool goals?
    • What is your child’s learning style?
    • What is your budget?
    • Control your curriculum and don’t let it control you!
  5. Schedule your priorities FIRST; Then just say NO!
  6. Discipline your children.
    • Proverbs 1:7,8
  7. Discipline YOURSELF!  Get Organized!
    • Plan your menus a week in advance
    • Homeschool year round
    • Plan in pencil.
  8. Be Flexible!
    • Don’t be so structure and organized that you don’t put people first.
    • Only Christ was perfect
  9. Don’t let your housework become overwhelming.
  10. Find Support!! Don’t isolate yourself.

As I typed this up I was reminded that I am blessed to homeschool my children.  They are God’s gift to me and I will appreciate it everyday!

How do you avoid being stressed out in homeschooling?
