Most of us are new to homeschooling our children, but even if we’re not, it can be a challenge. What if instead of putting a lot of pressure on ourselves to be perfect, we focused on setting realistic goals and even finding small daily joys in this opportunity to teach our children?

She also offers advice on turning daily life skills into teachable moments (bonus – some chores get done!) and allowing older children to have some self-directed learning opportunities.
