You might be sitting with a cup of coffee in your hand as you feel overwhelmed by all of your failed attempts to keep your homeschooled child motivated. I understand; I feel your pain. When a child is born, we as parents have all these visions about that child, and we can imagine how the future should unfold. We can see them graduate from a dream college, and start an amazing career. Then the child starts preschool or kindergarten and our sand castle starts to fall apart. The well-planned path becomes bumpy, and the ride is not so enjoyable. You are exhausted and don't know what to do.
