S2E3: Homeschool Failures: Turning our Struggles into Wins

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, homeschooling is hard! It is, in fact, one of the greatest challenges I have ever faced: more challenging than cleaning my house or doing a huge work project or even changing my husband’s mind (as if THAT were possible). So many mom’s I talk to feel like they are doing this whole thing wrong and it’s time to address the elephant in the room. In today’s podcast I wanted to illuminate some of the common reasons we feel like failures and how we can learn from those, grow from those, and change those days into some of our best homeschool days yet! I am going to share some very recent struggles I have faced in my homeschool as well as practical tips and ideas to get yourself back on track and on your way to a successful homeschool week.

Here’s an inside look at my homeschool planner all set up. I used it to plan all 4 of my children’s weeks as well as our morning basket. I will take a few more pics and a pic of my school nook and get those in here tomorrow (Monday). So check back if you don’t see them!

We all have homeschool struggles, we all have hard days. In this homeschool podcast I vent about some homeschooling struggles and give some practical homeschool tips and encouragement to turn those failures into successes!



  1. I can totally agree that homeschooling is hard. Sometimes I think that I can’t do this, and thanks to your blog, I find some inspiration to keep it up. Also, I use to get some professional help with some assignments of my kids. I think that it’s better to ask for some help if you feel that this task is too complicated for you. In any case, I think that homeschooling is interesting, despite some difficulties.
