Great Homeschoolers . . .

Here are the remaining 5 things great homeschoolers do! Do you do these things?

6. They Don’t Fear “Risk”

After spending time weighing the risks and benefits they might decide to take a year off and go travelling, to totally switch curriculums, to switch boards, to down size, to give up a second car, to change jobs, to move to a new town with more educational sites . . . homeschoolers make all kinds of decisions others might see as risky but not before weighing the benefits.

7. They Don’t Dwell on the Past

Great homeschoolers don’t waste time dwelling on the past and wishing things could be different. They acknowledge their past mistakes and can say what they’ve learned from it. They might acknowledge that a path they took, or school they tried that didn’t work. But they don’t constantly relive bad experiences or fantasize about the glory days. Instead, they live for the present and plan for the future – their kids’ future!

8. They Don’t Resent Other’s Success

Great homeschoolers can appreciate and celebrate other people’s success in life. They don’t grow jealous or feel cheated when others surpass them. Instead, they recognize that success comes with hard work, and they are willing to work hard for their own chance at success.

9. They Don’t Give Up After A Failure

Great Homeschoolers don’t view failure as a reason to give up. Instead, they use failure as an opportunity to grow and improve. They are willing to keep trying until they get it right.

10. They Don’t Fear Alone Time

Great Homeschoolers can tolerate being alone and they don’t fear silence. They encourage everyone in their family to have down time and understand that some of our most creative moments come from being bored. They aren’t afraid to be alone with their thoughts. They enjoy their own company and aren’t dependent on others for companionship and entertainment. In fact, most great homeschoolers love a great book! And can get lost in its pages!

Have a great and glorious day!
