Teaching your children at home can be an incredibly enjoyable and connecting experience. However, it can be difficult to get everything done, have a balance in your home, and try to keep some order!
After 15 years of homeschooling I have discovered a lot about how to work with the uniqueness of your family and the individuals in it to create an environment where everyone thrives. It takes some time, some paying attention, and some working together to create a family rhythm that works for your family.
I’ve given the same advice time after time to my friends when they first start homeschooling, and are trying to make up a schedule that they can stick to to get everything done.
First I give them this advice, about calming down and relaxing, and then I move on to how to create a family rhythm instead of a strict schedule.
Here’s the thing, there is no one size fits all schedule for a homeschool family. It may be that you have 7 kids you are trying to juggle, you may be homeschooling for a short time because of moving, sickness, (or a pandemic, never thought I’d that in there!) You may have young kids, or kids that are starting high school.
The truth is our homeschooling situations are as unique as each of us and so the approach to finding what works needs to be just as unique.
That is why I created this ebook/workbook. It is my hope that in these pages and worksheets that you will be able to discover your family’s natural rhythm, and create a routine that works for you.
The concepts are simple, but the effect is profound.
I hate to see any mom stressed and yelling at her kids because their schedule is wrecked for the day and they aren’t going to get everything on the to-do list done. I also hate to see any mom who feels like she is failing because she is dropping balls that feel important.
So this workbook aims to help find an end to those things.

Here are some of the things it touches on and helps you work through-
- Figuring out your family’s natural rhythm, when your children are most attentive, when you have commitments, what your sleep patterns look like.
- Identifying what is most important. What tasks do you NEED to do in a day and what would be a bonus, working through having reasonable expectations, and prioritizing what really matters.
- Helping your children learn by diving into their interests and building from there. Learning to incorporate learning into what they already love to make it easier and more fun.
- Fostering independence in your kids, helping them prioritize their tasks, get school work done, and pitch in around the house!
That’s a lot for 28 pages, isn’t it! Like I said, the concepts are simple, the payoff is amazing!
The workbook pages also include simple monthly, weekly, and daily planning pages that you can print over and over to simplify your days and keep track of all the things you have going on!
