Recently on an office hours call with a number of Teach Them Diligently 365 members, a question was asked that sparked a conversation about realistic expectations. As Leslie discussed the situation with the mom who asked the question, she was amazed to see the chat box blow up as others expressed their struggle with that as well. When Leslie stepped back a bit and thought it through a little more, she realized that much of what we see and read is actually designed in such as way as to feed unrealistic expectations and all the frustration, stress, and discontent that come along with it. So, today, we’re going to look at Unrealistic Expectations– Homeschool Edition.
