Homeschool Rescue~ Review

Hello lovely readers. Being a mom has it’s challenges and it’s rewards. You have your good days and bad days and something in between. Homeschooling too has it’s good and not so good days. How many of you homeschooling moms have days where you find yourself feeling overwhelmed, discouraged, frustrated, burnt out, or inadequate?  Are you struggling from feeling a lack of support around you? I’ve been at this thing over 10 years and I’ve had many of those days. That’s why I am so excited to share with you my review of a new homeschool parent resource from Only Passionate Curiosity called Homeschool Rescue
Only Passionate Curiosity Homeschool Rescue
Homeschool Rescue is an online support program for homeschooling parents with children of all ages. It does not matter if you are a beginner or a veteran in your homeschool journey, Homeschool Rescue may be just what you need. Heather from Only Passionate Curiosity is the creator of Homeschool Rescue. Her heart is to help “homeschool moms out there who are feeling overwhelmed or inadequate” about things going on in their homeschooling efforts. The course is designed to “encourage and uplift” these parents. “This course is about being purposeful because when you have a clear picture of where you are, you can start picturing where you want to be”.

Only Passionate Curiosity Homeschool Rescue
 
This homeschool parent resource is there to help the homeschool moms recover from being tired or burnt out. Homeschool Rescue can help her to refocus on the reason why she started this journey with her kids. By becoming a member of Homeschool Rescue you will have access to video lessons on the topics of:

* Troubleshooting Your Homeschool
* Time Management Systems & Organization
* Planning & Curriculum
* Setting Your Students up for Success
* Teaching Older Students and more

For each lesson in the course there is a less than 20 minute video to watch, worksheets for the homework assignments, as well as additional resources or things to read. The motto of the course is to “Breathe New Life into Your Homeschool”. This is exactly what it will do if you’re at a place where you feel like throwing in the towel. Help is out there and this may be just what you have been searching for.

Homeschool Rescue Notebook

When I received my lifetime membership to Homeschool Rescue I did not know what to expect. Just like many other moms I have days where I feel overwhelmed or get discouraged in my homeschooling journey. Once I had received my access link to log into the website I was glad it was easy to get started. There was no wondering what to do first. There is a welcome video there with warm and encouraging words from Heather. On the right hand side you’ll see a video I highly recommend you watch before getting started. It is a video tutorial of how to navigate around the site. There are helpful hints underneath it as well. I also recommend having a set of headphones nearby to listen the videos within the lessons. There were times where the volume was not loud enough for me to hear even though I had both my laptop and the video volume buttons turned all the way up.

You will find the course content on the front page. There are 5 module lessons. Each module has several lessons within. I loved that there is a 60 day course plan to guide you. It is a PDF download. I took things a step further and made myself a Homeschool Rescue Notebook. The picture above this one is the outside cover. Inside I have my 60 day planner, divider pages for each module, and all of the accompanying worksheets to the lessons. It all starts to add up and is the reason why I created the notebook.

Each module starts out with it’s own introduction on what will be covered in the lessons. It’s usually short and to the point. Once you go into a module lesson there is a video to watch. I like that there is an audio and a transcript download of the lessons. If I need to go back and review anything I missed or just need to hear again, it is there for me to take my time to digest it more. There are also note pages available as a download that is specific to the lesson you are on. This is great for jotting down tips and ideas you don’t want to forget. Here is glimpse of what you will find in the video lessons:

I just love the quotes that are added throughout the lessons.

There are often questions for you to ponder. You will be encouraged to be realistic and honest with yourself.

The tips are refreshing and helpful. Expect to hear over and over to give yourself some grace and BREATHE.Image

Once you get to the end of the video you’ll have to dig deeper by doing a homework assignment. After all “the course is intended to push you a little outside of your comfort zone”.  Within different lessons I learned why I needed to monitor my screen time, be aware of soul suckers, learn how to say “no” with grace, and the importance of being intentional with scheduling in some self-care.

There is also a private Facebook group for members. There you will be among others like you who will give helpful advice, support, and cheer you on. I like that Heather was there and very active within the group. Even though I am a veteran home school mom, I was blessed to work through Homeschool Rescue from Only Passionate Curiosity.  Although I mentioned there is a 60 day planner, the course is self-paced so you don’t have to feel like you are behind if you find yourself taking longer to get through the module lessons. Some of the lessons had things that took me longer to process and finish so knowing this was a relief. If you are in need of help and support in your homeschool journey, see if Homeschool Rescue really is the answer you’ve been praying for. One quick note before I go. There is a free live workshop being held on Wednesday and Thursday this week. Be sure to stop by and sign up so you don’t miss it.
