Description

The Self-Compassion for Homeschool Mamas course is designed to help homeschooling mothers develop useful self-awareness practices and cultivate self-compassion.

Homeschooling is demanding, and this course aims to help moms nurture themselves while also caring for their children’s emotional needs.

You can learn to practice Self-Compassion, develop strategies to address big emotions, and model healthy communication and emotional regulation for your children.

The Self-Compassion for Homeschool Mamas course is designed to help you respond to your children rather than reacting and learn to honor your child as a separate person. By practicing Self-Compassion, you will have the energy and confidence to approach each homeschool day with intention and engage with your children in meaningful ways.

Treat yourself like your own best friend and discover how this approach can transform your homeschooling experience.

Because homeschooling demands a lot out of us and insists we learn a lot about ourselves.

So, the Self-Compassion for Homeschool Mamas course will guide you into useful self-awareness practices, honour your homeschool mama experience, and enable you to practice self-compassion practices: so you can nurture the nurturer!

Straight up, if someone had talked to me about self-compassionate strategies, I would have thought, nope, too weird.

But then I spent years struggling to deal with my big emotions, I spent years not feeling good enough, and I was finally open to listening to self-compassion strategies.

I fell into one on a particular homeschool day where I was awfully frustrated.

What could have been frustrating me?

  • A child was being unkind.
  • Kids were fighting, again.
  • Nobody wanted to do the thing I had planned so lovingly for them.
  • The house was a mess.
  • I was feeling unsupported and disconnected from others.

Oh, ya know, a couple things might have been going on.

And I really wanted to text my husband.

But since he wasn’t responding to his texts (he happens to work in emerg, so what he was doing was likely more emergent than his wife losing her stuff at home), I had to figure out what else to do!

Call my friend, I thought. Turns out, she was too busy to respond too.

Well, what is a homeschool mama to do?

Head on over to my bathroom mirror and talk to myself.

Weird, but effective.

I just needed someone to witness my frustration and sadness.

To look into my eyes and say, “Hey, you’re having a moment, sometimes homeschooling is hard, but you’ve got this.”

So that is what I did.

For me.

And to my utter surprise, it was therapeutic.

“With self-compassion, we give ourselves the same kindness and care we’d give to a good friend,” Kristin Neff says.

I often share with homeschool mamas that if they’re particularly heated with their kids, they should head to the bathroom mirror.

Stand in front of the mirror.

See that sad, exasperated, angry face?

What would you say that sad, exasperated, angry face if it were your friend?

You might say:
  • I’m sorry you’re frustrated.
  • I care about you.
  • I’ve been there, done that. (Even maybe this morning).
  • You’re a good mom; I see how you engage most of the time and you care about your kiddo.
What you wouldn’t say is this:
  • You’re a horrible mother.
  • You should never have had a child.
  • You’re such a screwup.
  • You will never learn how to parent with kindness/gentleness/self-control/you-fill-in-the-blank.

Nope, words you’d never utter to a friend.

So why are you doing that to yourself?

(FYI we all speak more harshly to ourselves than we do to others.)

How do you want to speak to your friends?

Look back to your face in the mirror: speak to that “friend” in the mirror.

And lest you think I’m sharing this clever approach, but don’t regularly try it. Turns out, I do try it.

In fact, I use it regularly.

I came by it on a day when I couldn’t access my husband by text. And not my good friend either.

So, who else was I going to talk with? Myself. In the mirror.

And I have since discovered that is a useful, though odd, approach to calming myself down.

And when I’m calm? I can decide how to intentionally respond to my anger/anxiety/sadness/other intense emotion AND head back to my homeschooled kiddos and engage intentionally.

Self-compassion begins with treating ourselves like our own best friend.

Use the Self-Compassion for Homeschool Mamas Course to become your own best friend.

What you’ll see in the course.
