If there were one thing in your life that you could change to make your life easier, what would it be? What if there were no social rules or pressures or expectations, what would you change to bring peace into your daily space? Or, are the social rules, pressures and expections the things that you’d change?
There are many outside forces that can make homeschooling a challenge: critical relatives, social pressures, strict state requirements, personality differences and disabilities are some. But there are also challenges that we create for ourselves. What expectations do we have of ourselves and our kids, that we choose to have, that make our lives difficult? If we can identify them, we are one step closer to finding a path to peace.
