If you’ve landed here, you are likely exploring homeschooling for your children.
I help parents just like you — who are feeling at a loss of where to start homeschooling, who are overwhelmed and/or discouraged on their home education journey, or who are burnt out; to gain the confidence, know-how, and support for a successful homeschool experience.
You are a parent who is trying desperately to figure this homeschooling thing out…but somehow with the wealth of internet information, parenting advice, and public school mindset; you may be stuck on where to even begin. You are likely committed to helping your child along their homeschooling journey, but either you’re not sure how to start, you’ve hit the proverbial brick wall, or you’re at a loss of how to finish strong.
What every parent wants, is to help their child be all they can be.
The reality is, that something has been stopping you. Maybe you’ve been holding back out of fear, maybe you worry about special needs, or the highschool years, or maybe you just want to know that someone is there to provide support and hold your hand along the way.
The homeschool journey can seem scary, and overwhelming. We all worry about our children’s education. But there is help for struggling families.
It’s time to get clear about your fears, and where you need help.
It’s time to take action!
– Are you excited to start homeschooling, but can’t seem to take the leap?
– Are you burnt out from years of homeschooling, and need some energy and inspiration instilled into your homeschool day?
– Have you become paralyzed with too many choices of curriculum, methods, and where to begin homeschooling?
– Do you wish that you had access to an experienced coach, who could answer all your homeschooling questions?
– Perhaps you can’t imagine homeschooling through highschool, but would like to learn how?
If you have any of the above thoughts, you are not alone.
I Get It. I’ve been there.
As a mother of three kids – I know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed with teaching, worrying about special needs, and wondering just how much I might ruin my kid’s future by homeschooling them.
I know what it’s like to leave the “safety” of public school; where your child’s education has always been someone else’s responsibility.
Now their education is on your shoulders, and that’s a scary place to be.
Homeschoolers balance it all; households, lesson plans, kid’s sports, and some still work outside the home! How will you ever manage it all, and provide a top-notch learning experience for your kids?
Homeschooling shouldn’t feel like an episode of Survivor.
As a mother, long-time homeschooler, homeschool group leader, former Intensive Care Unit Registered Nurse, and now as a homeschooling coach and author; I have come to the realization that home education isn’t about getting it perfect at all, it’s about building your family relationship, and nurturing your child’s love of learning.
What I finally figured out was, that I could share in my children’s learning, and build our relationship at the same time. Homeschooling became inspirational when I focused on my children’s gifts, rather than their shortcomings. Through the years, I was overwhelmed with advice from well-meaning people, and from exploring thousands of websites on homeschooling. I had no idea where to begin and spent many years trying to figure it all out. Support systems were few, and information was overwhelming and didn’t seem to fit our family’s unique needs.
Finding a support system for homeschooling is not easy. The internet is filled with information and social media groups, but homeschoolers tend to give advice and support from a standpoint of what has worked for THEM. Finding accurate information and a safe place to land in a confusing world is paramount to a successful homeschool program.
But where do you begin?
Wouldn’t it be great to have a place to find support, inspiration, and a personalized plan always within reach of your homeschool?
Homeschooling for Success.
These days, I don’t worry so much about homeschooling. I’ve put aside the fears and worries that home educating my child sometimes brings. I’ve successfully transitioned one child into college, my middle child is a Marine, and my teenager at home has a big, juicy future ahead of him; all because I chose to homeschool them.
I moved beyond the fear, and it paid off BIG.
