Overcoming homeschooling problems means learning a skill which will help you through the ups and downs of teaching your child at home.
It's an essential skill - and one I can teach.
I don't know what homeschooling problems you are looking to solve.
But whatever your problem is, the way to overcoming all of them is to take control.
And that control is in your mind.
The fact is once you've solved one problem when you're teaching your children - another is bound to crop up!
So it's about keeping an eye on the main picture.
However fantastic your homeschool, your house, your income, or your partner, you will probably stay worried and unfulfilled unless you choose to look at things in the right way.
That might sound a funny question.
After all, we are talking about overcoming homeschooling problems.
But we need to start by looking at the wider picture so we can spot a general truth.
We all know people who are constantly saying if only they had the RIGHT job / partner / house / money / friends - THEN they would be happy.
But deep down they never will be.
Because no one and no thing can make you happy.
However much money you have - (luckily when you're homeschooling you don't get much option on that one!) - however much your partner is loving and supportive and helpful - it's actually UP TO YOU to choose.
If you've had a lousy day with the kids you could easily say to yourself:
Or you can choose to look at things another way. The best way to overcome homeschooling problems is to stand back and try to see the positives.
The beauty is: it's not about whether you are good enough to homeschool. It's about whether you choose to believe that there are always ways to tweak your homeschool so it works for all of you.
You are choosing to look on homeschooling problems as a learning experience.
And the foundation of that learning is BELIEF in YOURSELF.
We learned earlier in the course about the power of affirmations and inspirational quotes.
Your task is to carry on using them because overcoming homeschooling problems is all about revealing the powerhouse within you.
But I'd like you to add in these additional tools:
Stock a bookshelf in your special place with:
I'll add here a couple of links to YouTube which take you to some calming music to get you in the mood:
1. This clip is three hours long and has flute, piano and ocean sounds to relax you. With over 7 million views it seems like a good choice!
2. This is the instrumental theme from Braveheart.
Over the weeks ahead, your task is to work out a system that works for you so that you can practice all the tools we have discovered.
I'm going to leave you with some special words to say to yourself:
See what a difference it makes to overcoming homeschooling problems!
