Collaborative Post¦ As a parent, working from home is a dream. The kids are at school and you have time to sit in the quiet, get all your work done and there are no office politics to worry about. The problem this time is that you’re expected to meet your deadlines and get your work done while managing the kids at the same time. Not only that, you’re managing being a newly drafted teacher, while managing the toddler and while getting your work done! It’s a lot of things to do and if your kids aren’t in school and are at home, you need to figure out a way to manage without melting down.
It’s not easy to do, and while you can buy yourself and your other Mum friends teacher sweatshirts to mark the transition between parent and teacher, you need to make sure that homeschooling isn’t getting you down. Your children need you to feel good while you’re working with them, and they’re without their friends. So, if homeschooling is pulling you down, we have a variety of suggestions to help you to pull yourself back up again.
The most important thing to remember about homeschooling is that you cannot do it all, and you need to reach out where you can and get some support. Don’t be afraid to tell your boss if you’re struggling, too!
