HSHSP Ep 131: How to Handle Homeschool Countdowns

What to do when you feel a countdown coming on…

  • Vacation is coming!
  • Christmas is coming!
  • SATs are coming!
  • Missions trip is coming!
  • Portfolio reviews are coming!
  • College applications are coming!
  • Graduation is coming!

Are you ready enough? What if you don’t get everything done? What do you do?

Start with self-care. Really! It’s like putting your own oxygen mask on first.

Talk to your kids about managing pressure and stress.

Also, take Kym’s advice: Remember, there are some wrong ways to handle stress.

  • Ignoring your stress
  • Taking your stress out on other people

Take Vicki’s advice: Teach your kids the 3W’s

  • What am I feeling?
  • Why am I feeling that way?
  • What am I going to do about it?

Here’s more information from Vicki.

Find an appropriate person to talk about the stress. Also teach your kids the 6 degrees of separation of relationships. This helps your teens know who to talk about your stress. Read this post from Vicki Tillman Coaching on how to discern who is safe.

Then write down what you’re going to do about the stress! It helps you be accountable.

  • In a marble composition book like Sabrina does
  • On your phone like Vicki does

Remember: Apologize when necessary. It’s okay (and necessary modeling).

Enjoy this fun episode and also check out this episode for teens and crunchtime crazies.
