Homeschool and Work from Home Productivity Tips for Moms
Here we are at the end of summer break in 2020, all moms (parents) out there are trying to make one of the hardest decisions we have ever had to make. Do we send our kids back to school or do we homeschool? I know that personally, I have been a wreck trying to make this decision. There is no easy answer. There is no perfect answer. No two families are alike and we are all in different boats. Same COVID storm but different boats.
So, if for your family it makes sense to work from home and homeschool your little ones than I thought it would be helpful to get some productivity tips for moms crossing into this new territory.
13 other mom bloggers offered their best productivity tips for homeschooling and working from home. I am going to share those with you to hopefully help ease the stress of this new experience.
