How to Show Up for You (& your Kids) as you are a Working Homeschool Mom with Charlotte Jones

Charlotte Jones lives in sunny South Africa with her husband, twin boys, and two mini dachshunds. She has been a working homeschool mom since 2017 and she loves it!

As a coach and the creator of My Little Homeschool and The Strike a Balance Podcast for Working Homeschool Moms, she helps working homeschool moms while they try to juggle all the things while welcoming more joy and ease into their lives.

So, let’s chat with Charlotte Jones, a working homeschool mom…

Charlotte Jones and I discuss our approach to time management and create community as homeschool moms who also work.

“Multitasking is something you should avoid. Our brains don’t like jumping from one thing to another.”

Charlotte Jones, Coach & Creator of My Little Homeschool

Charlotte Jones & I discuss:

  • The number one issue is that she engages with other working homeschool moms: managing our time.
  • Her experience of deschooling from school-at-home.
  • There’s value in doing a time audit as a homeschool mom.
  • The myth of multitasking and its ineffective, unproductive nature.
  • The value of time blocking and teaching your kids about time blocking.
  • Assess your values to determine if the activities you participate in align with your values.
  • What she’s learned about herself as she homeschooled.
  • How to find time for the kids while you’re working.
  • Use alarms placed outside your door so the kids know you’re presently unavailable.

How does Charlotte Jones encourage homeschool families?

  • You need to find a community so you don’t feel alone, especially as you’re homeschooling and working.
  • Homeschooling is open to many opportunities, you just have to open your mind to the possibilities.
  • Your growth mindset is the most important thing when you begin the homeschool journey.
