Christie shared these questions on the SCM Discussion Forum recently. Keeping these in mind will help me so much as I determine plans for the next year.
“Does this help me reach my goals?”
“Does this add to my burden, or help me bear my burden?”
“Does it lighten your burden by offering something you would like to offer, but would appreciate doing with others or having another mom teach? Or is it just extra costing you a day or half day for things that wouldn’t make your personal planning list?”
“Do you have a goal of enrichment opportunities? Making friends? Academics? Does this group help meet some or any of these goals? Do you have the time to give consistently each week?”
