What is it about the new year that brings about this instinctual desire to do better? We all want a fresh start in our new year. There are so many great ideas for goal setting for your homeschool, but too often we tend to be a little too Pollyanna with our plans (you know, positively certain we can do it all perfectly). When we kick off our official start to our school year in the fall, many families make the age old mistake of “biting off more than they can chew.” We go into our school year thinking we can conquer the world of homeschooling and get everything done that we set out to do.
The reality is that homeschooling is a lifestyle…and boy, oh boy…does life happen when you’re homeschooling. So, when we are facing a new year, it makes great sense to create a few new resolutions within our homeschool.
I’m not always a fan of the word “resolution” when it comes to a new year. I prefer to think in terms of goals. Resolutions are too vague. Goals tend to be more actionable.
Every January I think it’s good practice for every homeschool family to consider these 5 New Year’s “Resolutions.”
