Every year, more and more families choose to home educate their children. All of the preparations are made, and the “first day” approaches. But then… the questions, the doubts, and the limiting beliefs kick in.
“How will I do this? Can I really do this? Is there support? Where is the support? Who else struggles with ___________? How do I know I’m not the only one?”
These questions, coupled with lots of other thoughts and beliefs, often go unanswered… and in most cases, can drive homeschooling moms (and dads) to the point of questioning whether or not the choice they made was a good one.
As a five-year homeschooling mom of four children, I can tell you that you are completely normal for having these questions, thoughts, and concerns. And guess what? I have even better news…
Help and support is here, and you don’t have to walk this journey alone.
Alongside the growing number of families deciding to homeschool is also a growing number of educational resources, homeschool bloggers, and homeschool mentors. There is no doubt in my mind that you can find your homeschool tribe, the perfect curriculum resources, and perfect support for your unique family and homeschooling journey.
In efforts to help you navigate the to’s and fro’s of homeschooling, I’ve put together an incredible Back to Homeschool series that focuses on mind over matter. Why did I choose this particular focus? Well, I’m a firm believer that what we think directly reflects what we do. For the homeschooling mom (and dad), this couldn’t be more true.
Beginning August 1st, myself and 19 other homeschool bloggers will address various aspects of homeschooling, bringing you real stories, real support, and practical tips that you can implement immediately in your homeschool. Each and every post will offer some form of wisdom and encouragement to help you homeschool with grace.
