Top 3 Things to Survive as an Accidental Homeschooler in a Pandemic

Thing #1) Keep your expectations and standards LOW.

Thing #2) Stay in the NOW, meeting your kids exactly wherever they’re at and don’t make the now into a bigger story than what it just IS.

The suffering comes when I FOLLOW my negative thought process.

Thing #3) ALWAYS put the oxygen mask on YOU first.

Lastly I wailed and sobbed for the parents and children out there who would find themselves in the same place as me and feel totally lost, discouraged and even traumatized in their own way struggling to survive each day, lacking the resources to get support or help.

We may be apart — but we need not feel alone in all this. It’s together, we’ll make it through.
