This week starts our second week of teaching our kids at home.
Last week was one hell of struggle.
My wife has worked from home for over ten years and I know how lucky we are that she’s able to do so.
But, damn, this last week and trying to find a schedule that works for the kids and school, my wife and her job as well as navigating being cooped up, has been difficult as hell.
I know that last sentence is everyone right now!
But we’ve figure out one that works for all of us.
My writing time has been moved so I’m able to help with teaching the things I’m good at, namely, history, English, and writing.
So I used to write in the morning after I’d taken them to school. Now it’s after they’ve completed their schooling for the day.
Today I did 4 writing sprints of 25 minutes each, with a five minute break in between each sprint. I’ve done these sprints this way for the last couple of years and it’s what works for me.
This new reality is hard but we have to get through it.
Find your bright spots. I’m able to help my kids with their writing and history stuff. I love history, it’s always been my favorite subject.
Now I can focus on helping them enjoy it as well.
I hope you’re all well and taking this thing seriously.
