How Brene Brown Encourages Us to Dare Greatly in our Homeschools
How we think about our kids, how we think about ourselves, and how we think about our homeschools influences how we experience our homeschools.
It’s why we need to consider thought self-care strategies.
Because we mamas experience overwhelm, frustration, perfectionism, failure, loneliness, the not-good-enough, and a whole bunch of human feelings packaged in the homeschool experience.
We homeschool moms are doing something that requires us to dare greatly. You chose this homeschool thing, so do this homeschool your way. Do it the way you would do it if you knew you weren’t being criticized. Do it that way.
When you’re in the arena, you’re going to get your ass kicked.
This homeschool parenting thing requires a lot of work, a strong spirit, and requires us toward a lot of self-analysis. And it definitely makes us feeling like we’ve been ass kicked on THOSE days.
The most compassionate people are the most boundaried people.
Around our time, around our energy.
Should we always be emotionally available to our kids? I don’t think so. We need to recognize that we have needs that must be addressed, which sometimes we need quiet and separate space.
When we provide ourselves what we need, we are more able to provide our kids what they need.
Authenticity is a practice & authenticity is required.
If you’re not the real you, you’re not building the real community that you could be part of.
