The Homeschool Genius’ Advice for Homeschool Mamas:

  • Recognize that homeschooling is a privilege and you get to enjoy it.
  • Expect your kids to do things that your kids can do themselves.
  • Incorporate self-care concepts into your homeschool curriculum so they grow up knowing how to do it for themselves too.
  • Carve out time, even just for five minutes, to refresh and renew, just for you.
  • Create a conscious effort to show up every day on purpose in your homeschool life.
  • This homeschool journey is also about learning a lot about yourself as much as it is learning a lot about your children.
  • Nike has learned a lot about what she needed to grow and develop in and also the virtues she’s aspiring to.
