Burnt out? Erica Johns tells us about her journey.

homeschooling motherhood Dec 07, 2020

Every new homeschooler I meet is brimming with excitement or nervousness with all the plans in the world about how they are going to educate their children.  Sometimes everything is completely planned out to a 'T' and sometimes not, but always there is an energy that suffuses everything.  We homeschoolers like to think about what is best for each of our children and we get excited at being able to reach them and teach them ourselves.

Many times, we get so engrossed in what we are doing each day that we don’t take the time to stop and assess.  Things start to pile up, Mom gets stressed out and stuff starts to fall apart.  Burn out happens.  This week,I is talk to homeschooling momma Erica Johns.  Erica is at the end of her homeschool journey, within the last year with the youngest child.  She has been through the ups and downs of homeschooling and she shares with us about her burnout experience and what she learned from it.

You can connect with Erica at her website, Enrichmentstudies.com , where she helps other homeschoolers find activities that enrich their lives while improving brain function--what a as a bonus!
