I used to be one of those moms that fantasised about homeschooling my kids whenever I wasn’t happy with the traditional schooling system. Enter COVID 19, and I finally got to live out my fantasy! And let’s just say, things have been rather interesting around here!

Listen, I have a new found respect for teachers. Especially foundation school teachers, I don’t know how they manage to get multiple kids to focus on one task. After months of trial and error, we’ve finally figured out some sort of rhythm in my household. Here are some homeschooling tips for non homeschooling moms like me.

Use Supplements

The mamas that have younger kids will know how difficult it is to get the little ones to sit down and complete their work. Ten minutes into our session, and my five year old is ready to move on to the next thing! And that’s why I was so thrilled to try out Xcel’s supplement range. The product aims to preserve and enhance cognitive functions by slowing down the process of degeneration of neurons through antioxidants, nervine tonics and improving healthy circulation. Essentially, Xcel improves concertation, memory and assists with mental fatigue. 

It’s available in syrup for the little ones and tables for adults. Another thing that got me really excited about Xcel is that it’s completely natural—it’s a herbal complex product containing no alcohol. 

Asante and I are currently in the first week of our 6-week trial with Xcel, and I cannot wait to share the results with you!

Stick to a routine

It’s freezing at the moment, and I know it’s tempting to sleep in if you’re working from home. However, I’ve discovered that Asante and I should get her school work done first thing in the morning when she is still fresh and full of energy. That way, I can spend the rest of my day working while she plays.  

So figure out a routine that works for you and do your best to stick to it as often as possible.


Make sure that both you and your little ones get enough sleep. That way, you will be recharged and ready to tackle the next day. 

Be flexible

This is unfamiliar territory for all of us, so go easy on yourself mommy. You may not be as productive as you usually would be at the office, and sometimes you’ll submit your little one’s art project a little late. Give yourself some grace. We are in the middle of a pandemic, after all.

Balancing homeschooling and work is no easy task. But if you make use of supplements, stick to a routine, get enough rest and give yourself some grace you’ll be well on your way to regaining your sanity! What are some of your homeschooling tips?
