Homeschooling can be rough. In fact, some days you may want to just throw in the towel and send your kids off to school on those big yellow canoes (insider joke at my last job). Heather at Only Passionate Curiosity has given you the perfect resource if you feel as though you have hit your homeschooling limit when she created Homeschool Rescue!
Homeschool Rescue is an online class just for moms, or dads, who have hit the end of their ropes when it comes to homeschooling. For the parents who feel like they are going around and around in circles not getting anywhere. For those moms with the mom guilt that they are not doing enough for their children when it comes to homeschooling and life in general. If you have ever felt like this you first need to know that you are not alone, and second, you need to check out this course.
There are 5 Modules within this course. Within each of the five modules, you will find 3-5 lessons on that topic. Each lesson leaves you with a small amount of homework to help your home and your homeschool run just a little bit smoother. Heather has the busy mom in mind when she made each lesson. You have options on how to go through them!
There are multiple ways to get through each lesson. If you have the time to sit down and listen to the video on the computer, you are able to do that. Don't have the time to sit down in front of the computer, you can download the audio of the lesson on your phone and listen to it on the go. Did you miss something you wanted to remember? You can download the transcripts and highlight what you want to remember. I love this because I am a paper and pencil type of gal, highlighting is my thing!
Paper and pencil type of learner? There is even a downloadable note sheet to go with each lesson for those of you who want to take notes as you go. What more could you ask for? Oh, I know!!
The Bonus section!! Here you will find access to the Facebook group, Student Checklists and eight different styles of the Ultimate Planner with two different layouts, monthly and/or daily. With these bonuses, you are able to add more to your learning experience and bring it all together. Not to mention, the Facebook Group was where I was able to find a great mentor/friend who not only helped me work through this course, but has been there through so much more as well!
Heather does a great job of really walking you through the lessons. She has a very calm and refreshing tone of voice that just makes you want to listen. That calm voice that makes you also calm down. The Modules and Lessons are bite size. These are not going to take up your whole day or night. Each video or audio ranges from 15-30 minutes and the homework doesn't take that much longer to complete.
My favorite module was the one on teenagers. This is the area where I am struggling right now. It was nice to find the help I needed to go along with the rest of the help that was given.
I really enjoyed using this course. There are great tips for when you hit that homeschool burnout moment and all you want to do is send the kids off for the day or week. If you are new to homeschooling and just don't think you can do it, if you fear that you are failing your kids in this adventure you were called on, this is the course you need.
