11 Uplifting Affirmations for You, Homeschool Mom

Why is self-compassion is important?

Straight up, we homeschool mamas need to treat ourselves as kindly as we aspire to treat our kids.

(Because we can’t practice compassion for our kids if we’re not practicing it with ourselves.)

So, let’s clarify. How do you address self-criticism, self-judgment, not good enough, guilt, shame, or perfectionism as a homeschool mama?

Self-compassion affirmations for homeschool mamas will benefit YOU and the kids!

You could, on one hand, not address these experiences at all.

You could do the opposite of self-compassion for the homeschool mama:

  • just beat yourself up, make yourself feel bad,
  • remind yourself how horrible your parenting really is,
  • or at the very least, remember that you are a wee bit incompetent or incapable at times.
However, you could address that nasty mean person in your head saying all those things and declaring, thanks, but no thanks, I’ve got to learn a new way to speak to myself.

So, how do I suggest that you do that though?

It’s hard to get yourself out of your own head. And I know you have stuff to do homeschool mama! And self-compassion is likely not on the list.

Naturally, I have had a chance to practice self-compassion….and I am committed to practicing it till the day I die.

I strongly suspect I’ll always have a chance to learn to speak kindly to myself and include these practices in my life.

What do we do to change those self-criticizing, self-judging, not-good-enough, shaming, and guilty feelings inside our minds?

One thing we can do: practice daily the self-compassion affirmations for homeschool mamas.

I offer homeschool support for parents, so they can homeschool authentically, confidently, and purposefully.

Do you need support? You can be supported beyond your direct homeschool challenges too.

(Although I love chatting deschool, and clarifying your homeschool vision & intentions too, there are other things we might need someone to walk alongside us.)

Stuff happens in life: like heartbreak, heartache, fatigue, post-partum depression, a significant move, a new baby, or even seasonal affective disorder.
  • Sometimes we just need someone to bounce off an idea or plan for a new venture.
  • Sometimes we need to get a little clarity about our intentions in a relationship dynamic.
  • Or sometimes we need to get clarity in discovering who we are, why we’re here, and the next step in this season of our lives.
  • And most of the time, we need someone to help us clarify our big emotions and triggers for our homeschooled kids.
That’s why I’m here: I offer life coaching for the homeschool mama.

So if you’re curious, join me in a free coaching consultation so we can establish if we have a rapport and clarify your present challenge.
