How many times did you happen to think that thought last spring when your kid(s) came home to stay after the Corona Virus entered our lives? Did you panic knowing you were now the "teacher"? Did you break out in hives with the thought you may have to learn how to multiply fractions again? (Seriously, do we really have to know how to do that?) Did you deliver a message full of profanity to the Universe, as you clearly expressed to your girlfriends over wine on more than one occasion that you could NEVER home school your children? And now you were!
That you are reading this blog post, you clearly survived, but how did the very unconventional end of the school year go for you and your family? When you think about what you were able to do, do you still wonder if it was enough? Are you afraid that your kids did not complete enough workbook pages, or read enough books, or write enough paragraphs to be ready for the start of school this year?
What if I told you that everything is going to be okay? What if I told you that whatever happened last spring happened exactly the way it was supposed to happen? I'm sure that even with the panic, hives, and overwhelm there were amazing moments that only would have happened with you and your children quarantined at home. Moments that never would have occurred had you been frantically providing rides to dance, karate, and soccer. Relish those moments. Eventually COVID will be gone and we will all be busy again. Eventually....
For now, COVID is here. As I write this, COVID cases are rising in the United States. Many states are experiencing a SURGE, and the certainty of children being back in our schools is completely uncertain. And if the doors do open, are you wondering if it's safe for your kids to go? There is still a possibility you may be the home school teacher for a little bit longer. Do you feel that panic sneaking back in?
I can help and I want to help! As a life coach, a former classroom teacher, an interventionist, and even a home school teacher, I can help you feel prepared to help your kids be successful in the '20-'21 school year. Nobody loves your babies like you do and that makes you the perfect person to help them navigate this crazy time.
