how to take care of the homeschool mama's six selves

Recognize the six selves (in you and your homeschool kids): the cognitive self, the social self, the physical self, the emotional self, the spiritual self, and the creative self.

Advice for Homeschool Mamas:

  • Recognize that homeschooling is a privilege.
  • Expect your kids to do things that your kids can do themselves.
  • Incorporate self-care concepts into your homeschool curriculum.
  • Carve out time, even just for five minutes, to refresh and renew.
  • Create a conscious effort to showing up for every day.
  • I learned that this homeschool journey was learning a lot about me as much as it was about my children. I learned about what I needed to grow and develop in, the virtues I’m aspiring to.
