Hi Friend,

Our next Tea with Julie series is related to the idea of Less Is More. It's called, The One Thing Principle, and it's also critical to:

  • good home education,
  • good writing practice,
  • good living!

Over the coming weeks, we'll deep dive into the topic. Before you read each email, take a deep breath. Take another. Maybe pour a second cup of tea.

The One Thing Principle

Did you know that you are more likely to feel successful in homeschooling if you do one thing really well today (invest in it, spend energy on it)? If you let other things go and are fully present for one thing, you’ll feel like you got a lot done.

Conversely, if you do a whole bunch of things in a hurry, covering all the material as quickly as possible, you will feel discouraged like you didn’t get enough done.

Depth, not breadth, creates momentum in the homeschool. 

The discussion of how to create a flexible routine as well as how to create a home context conducive to nurturing relationships prompts me to revisit a plank of the Brave Writer philosophy: The One Thing Principle. Some of you already know it well. Others of you are new to Brave Writer so this will help you begin to shift the paradigm from which you teach and guide your kids.

Remember: we are home educators. We are not recreating school. One of the biggest advantages to being at home is the ability to go in-depth when studying or pursuing an interest. This is the key principle to help you do just that guilt free. 

More next time!
