When Homeschooling Feels like a Free Fall

Did you grow up with a mother that home educated you? Most of us didn’t. Maybe we learned how to serve a nutritious meal, how to change a diaper and clean a house from our mom but home-education is new to almost all of us. We are a pioneer generation! So what can we do to eliminate the feelings of fear? How do we learn how to do this? Are we just re-creating the public school environment in our home or are we really educating our children at a higher level? Let me show you the simplicity of home education, and how to surround yourself with other amazing moms like yourself. Stand strong and feel empowered in your decision to home-educate your children.
