Jennifer Bryant & I discuss:
- Our role of coach as a mama to our kids in conflict management.
- Reparenting ourselves, learning how to address our big emotions, and learning how to show up for ourselves and our kids, imperfectly.
- Giving ourselves permission to give ourselves breaks.
- Learning to handle our big emotions, like anger and frustration.
- Practicing self-compassionate techniques to help us address our big emotions.
- Knowing our strengths in how we engage our children.
- Always returning to the question, is your homeschool is working for you?
Jenn encourages homeschool mamas to overcome homeschool frustrations:
- How can you address interpersonal challenges or big emotions in your homeschool? With O.V.E.R.
- O: observe, what is happening? (the story of the present experience and the possible triggers)
- V: vent, say out loud, “What am I feeling?”
- E: embrace what is true about the reality of your situation.
- R: reframe, so you can cross over these bridges of struggle.
- You need to know yourself outside of your relationship with your kids &/or partner.
