F is for frustration. In homeschooling, there will be times when you get frustrated. There will be times when one of your children gets frustrated. And once in a while, there will be a really bad day where everyone gets frustrated (that will be a good day to bake brownies and call it Home Ec.)
Feelings of frustration on anyone’s part (yours or your child’s) don’t mean you’re bad at homeschooling your kids. They just mean you’re human. What counts is what you do about your frustration. Don’t submerge it; it will only return. Instead, look at what caused it and figure out how to fix that problem. Over time, those feelings of frustration will become less frequent.
