Back? To School…Ish.
Many of us are facing a brand new school situation right now, as school districts all across the nation are closing for weeks, months, perhaps even the rest of the semester. Homeschooling is becoming more and more popular for many families, but for many of you today, you are being thrust into “homeschooling” with no time to prepare, no choice in the curriculum, little control over the schedule, and minimal access to the resources that many of us who choice to homeschool are accustomed to having full access to.
Under normal circumstances, if you spend any time in a library, museum, amusement park, zoo, or really anywhere else during a school day, most likely you’ve run into some homeschoolers doing what we do. In the picture at the top of the post you’ll see a trip we took with friends while I was in school, at a time of year that most students were still finishing up the school year! When you aren’t confined to specific schedules, you can plan around the busiest times of the day or week. Sometimes museums and amusement parks will have special rates, or even a whole day, just for homeschoolers. All of these are things that homeschoolers like myself, my mom, and so many others that made the choice to homeschool, have been able to take advantage of for years.
Today, the closest thing that parents have to those are virtual tours that some museums have put together, and livestreams from some of the zoos. These are awesome resources, but hardly the same tool for getting out of the house, expending some energy, and seeing someone other than your family! The best tools at your disposal right now are the occasional walk down the sidewalk or going to a park – as long as you don’t talk to anyone or touch anything, or playing in your backyard.
Not to mention that you didn’t get a say in the curriculum your child is studying, nor the scheduled assignments that you now find yourself trying to help them complete while also most likely trying to transition your own job to a telecommuting position, and/or getting used to having a spouse home full-time.
Any one of those things is enough to make a person go a little stir-crazy. All together…there are no words.
That’s why today I want to talk about oils and other products that can help you and your kids get good rest at night, start the day off strong, and support brain function and emotions all day long.
