What are Your Expectations for Homeschooling?

Did you ever expect something out of someone or out of a certain situation and get disappointed?  Like expecting your husband to remember to bring you flowers for every major occasion?  Or that your children would behave well in public?  LOL!!!  I know we’ve all been there, and when those expectations go unmet, it can be discouraging, embarrassing, or worse.

The expectations we have for our homeschool can affect our feelings of success and/or frustration. Read one mom's experiences and how reality turned out.At the very least, expectations can be joy-killers, y’all. Because more often than not, at least for me, my expectations are way higher than reality. I know that has been true for my homeschooling life.  While I wasn’t exactly expecting the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, you might be surprised how close I came… 🙂

Today I’m guest-posting on My Joy-Filled Life as part of a series called The ABC’s of Homeschooling. My letter is X – for Expectations. (OK, I played with the English language there a little bit – you try coming up with a better word for X!)

I know that I started homeschooling, lo those many years ago, with many expectations that were just plain unrealistic. Join me at My Joy-Filled Life for a glimpse of what some of those were and how the reality turned out. Click here to go straight to the post: What are Your Expectations for Homeschooling? I bet you’ll see yourself in some places. Surely I’m not the only one! 🙂
