A Homeschool Mom Self-Care Myth is this: You don’t have time. Self-Care isn’t a 45 minute zumba class and 15 minute meditation. It can be different things for different people.

Advice for the homeschool mom who also works outside homeschool:

  • Don’t worry about all the things.
  • Do just the thing in the moment.
  • Don’t worry about all the things falling through the cracks.
  • Moms feel guilty all the time, but rather focus on all the things you can do.

Advice for the homeschool mom of a graduating kiddo:

None of the kids know everything about their whole future, but it feels better to know a next step. My job is to help teenagers know the next step to take. If they know their personality, they know what they already love, and they have had enough experiences that they can try on hats, they’ll make a really good decision for the next step. We don’t worry about the whole future, just the next step.

Gratitude…is the habit of noticing when something is going well…

  • It improves your immune system.
  • It triggers your anterior cyngulate in your brain.
  • It triggers brain growth in the “calm down” portion of your brain.
