Episode 50: Tips to Avoid Homeschool Burnout | Melanie Wilson
By: Jamie Gaddy and Homeschool.com
Homeschooling has seen incredible growth in 2020 and even rolling into 2021. Yet, one thing I have noticed, there are a lot of moms and dads that are now at home – homeschooling and working 24/7 and for the first time they are battling depression and burnout.
I know different people have a lot of different answers to this concern… and some can leave you more confused than before. She probably doesn’t know this – but Melanie’s website and podcast is something that I’ve turned to on occasion for words of encouragement when I’ve felt burn out or overwhelmed. One in particular that I enjoyed was the episode about Homeschooling with a Broken Spirit.
One question that we’ve been getting from many parents who are trying to juggle so much, is how do they deal with burnout or even depression.
Is this something that you’ve seen as well?
I feel like the triggers over the past year really are many – from lifestyle changes to pandemic concerns, to political worries. Physical exhaustion? Overworked? Staying indoors too much?
Listen in as Melanie shares some practical tips to help homeschool parents prevent homeschooling burnout!
