The One Mothering Skill I Cannot Teach YouJun 06, 2019
As you may know, I’ve been hosting a live class the past two weeks called, 3 Secrets to Creating Order in your Home while Homeschooling. It’s an hour long class where I share my heartfelt advice about how to get your kids to be a part of managing your home, how to incorporate rich actives into your days that will build relationships and memories and how to parent well in the process. That class followed a short Facebook live in which I discussed the 3 Myths that might be keeping you from Enjoying Homeschooling. And both free classes introduced my new course, Love your Homeschool, Simple Strategies for Quieting the Chaos so you can Enjoy Learning with your Children.
So, obviously, I have a fair amount of advice and encouragement to give, based on my 21 years of mothering and 15+ years of homeschooling. I LOVE to inspire and equip moms so they can feel confident in their role of home-maker and teacher. I want them to find JOY in the imperfect and enjoy the journey.
But I will be honest with you, I am completely unable to help with ONE CRUCIAL element of parenting young children. I failed abysmally at it with 4 kids and pretty much gave up with #5.
You might wonder, What is it? And how can I consider trusting a homeschooling mentor if they have such a horrible track record?? How was she allowed to continue homeschooling? Shouldn’t the authorities have come to the door and told her that her kids were truant? Should HSLDA have even let her join?? All are valid questions.Okay, here it is… I can’t give you any help with… POTTY TRAINING.
