“I hate school!” your child yells as they storm off to their room.
Ugggh! Such a heartbreaking and exhausting statement.
School is an important part of every child’s life.
Irrespective of whether they go to a public school, a private school, are homeschooled or have some combination of these, school is where your child learns the academic basics that will carry through with them into their adult years.
And when your child declares (repeatedly) that they hate school, it can be stressful and trigger all kinds of fear and frustration.
I understand it. I really do. It wasn’t very long ago that my son uttered those same words on a daily basis. I rarely ever heard anything positive about school from him.
We’ve gone through some challenging situations as parents, but this one was particularly stressful to me. First through public school and then homeschool, I had to figure out a way to help my child learn to love school.
I documented the whole process as much as I could, and I want to share the things I learned along this journey with you. Hopefully, something within it will resonate with you, and more importantly with your child.
