5 Ways to Ease the Transition from Public School to Homeschool

As we near the middle of the school year, many parents will be evaluating whether or not their children’s public school is working. Some will take the plunge and pull their kids out of public school over the holidays. I know, this was me! My freshly turned 5-year-old came home on Christmas break and we never looked back. But, the transition from public school to homeschool was hard. And the older your children are when you start, the more difficult it may be.   I would love to share some tips that can help ease the homeschool transition.

  • Family emergency
  • Kids get sick
  • Power goes out
  • Water leak
  • Roof leak
