Homeschool detox – it’s like preparing for a new puppy. No, your child isn’t a puppy, unless they want to be. However, just like bringing a new pet into the family takes preparation, so does preparing to homeschool your kids. Take time to find out where they are academically and build a learning baseline. Enjoy spending time together doing things you all enjoy – hiking, cooking, playing with actual puppies. You will be much better prepared to tackle homeschooling after this preparation phase.
