When you are ill either occassionaly or constantly how do you continue to homeschool successfully?
A reader emailed me last week with a question I feel entirely inadequate to answer. I'm hoping that you, my readers, may be better equipped to offer some words of encouragement to this homeschooling mom.
This is what she wrote:
"I am homeschooling three — 2nd, 4th and 6th grades. I have an autoimmune disorder that makes me extremely tired and limited at times as to what I can do. It affects my walking and even daily preparations around the house for several days at a time when I have a flare up.
I feel like I am giving my children a good education, but my temper flares and I get so frustrated with being limited physically and then being "stuck" inside all day with kids. I cannot "plan" extras and social outings sometimes due to flare ups.
Do you have any comments or articles written by mothers who have limitations or illness who have overcome the challenges of homeschooling?"
If you can offer some encouragement, advice, or links to articles for this homeschool mom, please leave a comment on this post.
