Homeschooling "Power Lessons" are key to motivating a homeschooler, especially when a mom finds her child's attention-span lacking. In this Homeschooling Parenting Tip video, Kelly Nault, covers parenting advice that supports a mom in inspiring her child with essential brain breaks.
If you’re a dedicated homeschooling mom, and chances are good you wouldn’t be here unless you were, you’ll wanna help your child use power lessons. These are like homeschooling rocket fuel that propels motivation, retention, and inspiration.
So let’s do this.

If we haven’t yet met I’m Kelly Nault and my passion’s helping dedicated moms with strong-willed children eliminate family tension, so they can enjoy the loving family they deserve and rock it as a homeschooling family.
So what you may not know about me is that I’m a recovering people-pleaser, with high expectations. When it comes to homeschooling, I’ve often bitten off more than I could chew… Sometimes heaping on too many expectations, as well.
Can you relate?
That’s why power lessons are key.
Now the first step is to recognize your child’s attention span—or lack thereof. As a helpful guideline, the norm for a child’s focussed attention is ONLY double their age. Yup, that means if your child’s 8 years old, you’re looking at a max of 16 minutes. So if you think your child’s gonna sit at their desk rattling off worksheet after worksheet, you’ll be sorely mistaken.
No one ever said this homeschooling gig would be easy. Right?
This is why movement breaks—yoga, Brain Gym, dancing, aerobics, kick’n a soccer ball around, or simply moving from location to location—are essential. Plus, staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water is key for optimum focus and brain power.
Totally simple, but often totally forgotten.
So do you already do this? Do you do this enough? What would it take to give your child the brain breaks they need? Let me know. And also let me humbly ask you to please pass this video on to any homeschooling moms who you think would like a little home learner mom support.
And until next time, may you rock it as a homeschooling mom, and when you don’t, be super gentle with yourself.
