The easiest way to avoid all the hubbub and morning strife of yelling and making lunches and finding matching socks and starting the car and getting everyone up on time is to home school your kids.
In a sense, home schooling your kids could be considered the avoidance of near occasions of sin.
If you want my honest opinion…well, if you don’t want it, really, why ARE you reading my blog…because you are gonna get it anyway…avoiding morning mayhem may be the single biggest selling point for education at home. Especially for a family with several children, mayhem can be profound. If you have to wake up babies, stuff toddlers in car seats to get three bigger children to get to school, this would be an unpleasant way to start the day.
Of course, if you are one of the lucky women who have an unemployed husband, well then you have nothing to worry about. He can feed and dress the babies while you run the children to school.
I never have had kids in school, so I haven’t experienced that level of morning mayhem. For twenty two years of homeschooling now, we have been not having morning mayhem, but I hear tell it can be bad. Moms I have known have said that the number one change in their life was the “relaxed mornings.”
