This time of need we want to talk about something almost everyone is dealing with: being thrust into a position of TEACHER. While we have been homeschooling all year, we remember how helpless we felt at first. You may be feeling excited, may be feeling exhausted and overwhelmed… or you may be feeling a mix of all of these things – and that's perfectly normal.
Best Homeschooling Facebook Groups for Newbies
Facebook groups helped us navigate this difficult time, and we know they can help you, too! Homeschooling groups are buzzing right now, so it's a great time to jump in and get started. There's no right or wrong way to homeschool; you may be learning right alongside your child(ren), and that is okay! The important thing is to breathe and remain as patient as possible. This is new territory for all of us.
