My Biggest Homeschool Mistakes and the Lessons I Learned!August 16, 2019
We all know it’s true – everyone makes mistakes. But, how we react to those mistakes makes all the difference!
As a long term homeschooler, I’ve made plenty. A LOT of mistakes. Yet, over the years, I’ve not let the mistakes I’ve made cause me to quit. I’ve tried – sometimes better than others – to learn from those mistakes. Sure I fall on my face, but the key is to get up – brush yourself off – and go at it another, hopefully better way.
So, if you’re in a spot where your mistakes are clouding your view of the future… take a step back. How can you use the mistakes your so concerned about to teach yourself a lesson? It’s there… just look at it from another angle!
Maybe hearing about my personal “big mistakes” will help you see that we’ve all been there. I’ve done some big ones – had a few years where I’m not sure much learning was accomplished – but we learned something. Sometimes I learned BIG lessons – huge life lessons that made me a better mom and a better parent teacher. So, grab a seat – and listen in… I’m sharing about my big messes and how I learned from them!
