What's your best tip for homeschooling? It can be about anything at all as long as it somehow relates to school.

I think my best tip is something that I'm really working on remembering to do. When you're having a rough patch with a kiddo, take a break & a breather. It keeps you both sane, and when you come back from the break you're both refreshed and ready to look at things in a new light.

My best tip is school doesn't have to happen at a table or in a certain room. If the couch is the most comfy place, go for it.

RELAX!!! I think that is the best tip I have been given and the best advice I can give. Homeschooling doesn't have to be a strict schedule and in a home made classroom. Living is learning so relax and LIVE!

To not stress out when your kids are young, as when they are 20 it wont matter if they learnt to read at 4, 6 or 8 because you can't tell. Also it doesn't matter if you don't do school every day because kids are learning all the time, we just have to learn to see it.
