I’ll admit it. This one’s hard for me. Are you surprised? I mean, I am a homeschooler–DIY for the win for always! I’m not the best at asking for help or even admitting (to myself!) that I need help.
There are the easy places to triangle in help in our homeschools. To get a tutor or even a really good book list. To find a co-op that serves your family. But it can be hard to ask for the help that we need.
One very near to hand person might just be your husband. What would it look like if you let him in? What if he took over bedtime read-alouds or dishes? What if you went on a walk after dinner together? What if you asked his opinion on curriculum choices? Not because he’s up on the latest trends but just to share what’s on your mind.
I have a hunch that creating small pockets of connection will serve us well when more challenging things pop up.
