When Your Homeschool Is More About You Than Your Child

I know how frustrating it is to hear people repeatedly say that you’re not qualified to #homeschool your child. Take it from me – don’t listen to them, or you risk losing focus on why you started #homeschooling in the first place.

I'm Shelly, a Christ-following, homeschooling Mom of eleven children ( okay, not ALL children. My oldest is 23.) I met my husband right after graduation, and we've been together ever since. Though my life can be hectic at times... okay, ALL the time, I wouldn't change it for anything.

  1. such great advice, thank you! I appreciate you sharing your own struggles. I also got a bit caught up in shaping my home school setting too much like public school. I noticed I was forcing myself and my sons (mostly my younger son) to adhere and “keep up with” what would or could be taking place in the regular public school setting.. I found myself making him sit at his little desk and just get worksheets done, or listen to me drone on.. and then I realized, why am I doing that, when I specifically do not want them in public schools for those tight restrictions and rules. But it’s so ingrained in our heads (at least mine) that “learning” must look like x,y, and z .. not true!! and my son now is reading around 4th grade but only entering into the “3rd” now but his handwriting totally needs work.. but I’ve accepted it! we are doing homeschool so they can learn at their own paces in their own ways.. and also to protect them from the blatant abuse taking place across America in these schools 😦 thanks for sharing this and bless you and you family!
