Ditching Homeschool Mom Guilt

Homeschool mom guilt is strong, it is overwhelming at times.

We all have a lot on our plates right now, and we’re just living life and then adding schoolwork.

Whether you are comparing to homeschool families you know, or those you see online. Please don’t compare yourself to others, especially those online.

– watch either some TV or a movie, something light funny perhaps – talk to someone – your partner, a friend or family member – Read a book – Take a nap or go to bed early – Take a relaxing bath – Listen to music, dance around – Have a cup of tea or a glass of wine

Ways to get a little TLC:

Self-care isn’t about just taking a bath, it’s about caring about yourself.

But maybe that bath is what it takes to relax you for a bit, for your stress level to come down, and for you to see the whole picture.

I find it helpful to keep a periodic log of what we do in our homeschool each month. This gives me something tangible to look at when I feel like we aren’t doing enough.
