As the homeschooling mother of three (they’re all grown now!) and mentor here at Art of Homeschooling, I know how hard taking care of ourselves can be. But I just love the idea of radical self-compassion on the homeschooling path. To help us strengthen our inner resources for homeschooling our children.
I put together this list of 10 self-care and inner work resources for homeschool parents to support you as you walk this path.
Because this way of life takes everything you’ve got, and it can truly be enjoyable and sustainable so long as YOU are well-cared for.
And I for one know that’s possible!
So take some time out of your busy life – I promise that self-compassion will give BACK to you tenfold – grab a cup of hot tea, and map out some beautiful creative steps to sustain YOU for the weeks, months, and years to come.
