Parenting is not an easy gig. The rewards are amazing, but it’s just not easy. When you throw in homeschooling, it can be even easier to start to feel a little weary along the way. Homeschooling can be an enormous amount of work, but even more so – it can be mentally taxing. That’s not just about the actual homeschooling though. Sometimes, that mentally taxing stuff is in our self-doubts and spending time comparing ourselves and our homeschool to other homeschoolers we know.
If you’re in need of some encouragement in your homeschooling or even just in your life as a parent (because this episode talks about homeschooling, but it can easily be applied to those self-doubts and comparisons we make as parents), you’ll want to check out this week’s seven and a half minute boost of encouragement for the weary homeschool parent.
Yep, that’s right. Just a seven and a half minute easy listen. Perfect for listening to while doing a household task or running part of an errand.
