    Great tips! I have a middle schooler and we’ve been working on slowly building more independence and I’m in that place of choosing subjects she can do on her own.

    The only thing I would add is that it’s okay to take things slow – homeschooling is a marathon. You don’t need to cover everything every year, do every single worksheet in the book, or burn out by trying to combine too many programs or too many projects… (some of the hard lessons I learned through the years.)

    Awesome addition Tonia! That has been a tough one for this type-A momma to learn! Years of experience have made it easier though! Just knowing that not doing those 10 other worksheets, or finishing those last two chapters, or not doing the big hands on project, is not going to end the world goes a long way to showing me it is ok to put that stuff aside.
