One of the perks of homeschooling is the ability to stay in pajamas all day long. And my kids and I have taken advantage of that perk on more occasions than I can count. It's just easier to stay in those comfy pj's, right?
But what I've finally come to grips with is that for our family, wearing pajamas while we homeschool just doesn't work. Sure, it's easy to be lazy and not bother changing. But I've noticed that when we do stay in our pj's all day long, we don't accomplish things as quickly as when we're dressed in our street clothes.
Now I don't entirely understand the psychology of it, and I haven't conducted any scientific experiments related to pj-wearing homeschooling vs. non-pj-wearing homeschooling, but I'm convinced that staying in our pj's does not do us any good. So from now on I'm just going to have to be less lazy and force myself and my kids to get fully dressed before we start our school day. I know we'll be glad we did.
How about you? Are you pj-homeschoolers or non-pj-homeschoolers. And why?
