Is Homeschool LESS Stressful than School?

After homeschooling your children in the lockdown recently, you might have watched this video thinking, ‘Well, it wasn’t less stressful for me!’ And that would have been because you were not homeschooling at all. You were doing online school from home.

You had to juggle teachers, and you were forced to homeschool. It was a very unpleasant and stressful situation!

But, just to clarify this video, I don’t mean online school is less stressful than homeschool. I mean homeschooling (without interference from government authorities and school teachers who are always on your back) is less stressful than school.

All of this said, my mother always told me homeschool was a lot less stressful than school. She said this mostly based on the fact that she didn’t have to rush around doing anything. The pace was pretty calm.

Rebecca Devitt
Most adults don't particularly want to relive their schooling experience on a daily basis. They would gladly move on to a new life devoid of homework and teachers. Very, very few adults will passionately blog about their schooling some 15 years after graduating. This makes Rebecca Devitt somewhat unique. As it happens, she was homeschooled. And she loved it. Still does. And she wishes every kid could get a taste of homeschooling at its very best. Her website How Do I Homeschool, is a springboard for parents to see what a life of homeschooling could be for both them & their children. When she's not blogging Rebecca is still homeschooling her-adult-self by learning Latin, growing weird vegetables and most importantly looking after her two children Luke & Penny. She has a husband Tristan and is a participant at Wollongong Baptist Church. She's also written a book about why parents should homeschool called 'Why on Earth Homeschool'.
