Start Sweep & Smile today! https://simplyconvivial.com/sweepHow many times have you scoured the internet, browsed Pinterest, or binged YouTube, looking for the next best tip or secret for a clean home? You want a clean home, fast, but no tips seem to work and no routines seem to stick. Oh, yeah, I've been there, done that.Have you spent as much working any of those home cleaning tips as researching them?Ouch. I know. But the truth is that any routine for a clean home will work if you do.However, there's a huge temptation we absolutely must resist. It is a plague for those of us who tend to be both overambitious and overwhelmed - at the same time. We can teeter-totter between having everything together and totally giving it all up as impossible. This is the dreaded boom and bust cycle.The boom and bust cycle is hard on moms. It's hard on families. It's not a good cycle or a good plan.Mystie Winckler encourages moms to organize their attitudes and get traction at home so we are no longer overwhelmed or frustrated with homemaking.

Learn to love what must be done: https://simplyconvivial.com/sweepNeed more cleaning motivation? Hate housework? Frustrated with chores? Here's the problem...First, we can feel angry while we clean the house when we focus on finishing or being done with the work and then — too soon after we “finish” — we have to do it again.It’s easy to blame the kids or even our husband for undoing the work, for making messes again, for needing more food or more laundry. When we see housework as a thing we’re supposed to finish, check the work off as done, then the people in our house feel like a problem. We finished the work, but because of others, the work has to be done again.The problem in such cases is only our perspective, not the other people and not the work. We have a wrong view of the nature of housework and the nature of life. We don’t understand our position in relation to our home and family life.**The work of keeping a home is not work that ever stays done. **That’s not a discouraging statement if we look at it rightly.Read more here:  https://simplyconvivial.com/2023/housework-makes-me-mad/Mystie Winckler encourages moms to organize their attitudes and get traction at home so we are no longer overwhelmed or frustrated with homemaking.

Get my free homeschool checklist templates: https://simplyconvivial.com/checklistsI couldn't keep my homeschool running and organized and on track without checklists for me as the teacher and checklists for each student being homeschooled, but that doesn't mean I haven't made mistakes along the way! There are wrong ways to use checklists and bad ways to depend on them. Here are the major mistakes I've made while homeschooling with checklists so that you don't have to!1. Making all the homeschool checklists up front at the beginning of the school year.2. Start creating new homeschool checklists from scratch every week.3. Using shorthand and shortcuts on the checklists while homeschooling4. Letting student checklists roam free and loose - checklists need a home!5. Not looking at each kids' checklists - if mom doesn't look at them, neither will the kids.Blog posts about homeschooling teens - How to homeschool a tween: https://simplyconvivial.com/2023/how-to-homeschool-a-tween-a-survival-guide-for-moms/Homeschool Advice: https://simplyconvivial.com/2018/homeschool-advice-inspect-expect/Twelve-year olds are persons too: https://simplyconvivial.com/2018/twelve-year-olds-are-persons-too/The Stages of Homeschooling: https://simplyconvivial.com/2023/the-stages-of-homeschooling/Mystie Winckler encourages moms to organize their attitudes and get traction at home so we are no longer overwhelmed or frustrated with homemaking.

Get my free homeschool checklist templates: https://simplyconvivial.com/checklistsEvery homeschooling mom's dream is to have independent learners who just do their own work and love learning - every day. Yes, that's a dream. The dream is different from the reality. Checklists aren’t a tool where we offload our responsibility onto our kids. But they are a tool that lets us train them in diligence if we keep up our end of the diligence.Raising an independent learner is more than handing a checklist to a kid and telling him to do it. It takes time, coaching, and consequences after mistakes for kids to learn. There are age-appropriate stages for expecting independent work.

Will having done this work make a difference in the child’s education? Will both of you be happy in ten years that you did it. You will be when it comes to reading good books, having meaningful discussions, learning important skills.Mystie Winckler encourages moms to organize their attitudes and get traction at home so we are no longer overwhelmed or frustrated with homemaking.
