Can working moms homeschool? Are you considering homeschool next year with everything going on? How does that work when you are working? If you missed last week, go back and have a listen as we broke down a lot of the logistics to getting started with Homeschool and kill the overwhelm. In this episode, we are joined by a working mom who has homeschooled all of her kids and made it work as she pursued her career. Jen Moore and I talk about the benefits and drawbacks of making this choice including missing out on traditional school activities. We will be walking through more topics related to this over on YouTube. Click here to subscribe.
About Our Guest
Jen Moore is a Jesus-loving, homeschooling, business running, book-binging mom living in a warm, crazy home in Cincinnati, Ohio with her very patient husband, four boisterous children, approximately 4.2 million books, a menagerie of musical instruments, and one cat. In the past decade, she has photographed hundreds of babies and achieved the hard-earned title of “Chief Baby Snuggler” at Jen Moore Photography. Her love of motherhood and passion for encouraging other moms to let go of mom guilt and embrace God-given grace and purpose has led her to create a new community, You Only Mom Once, where she hopes to show other moms that if she can successfully raise humans, they can, too!
Action Items and Tips From the Show
Here are the 5 Tips that Jen shares from mom to mom when it comes to Homeschooling
- Know your why and keep it in front of you.
- Give yourself a lot of grace. Things will look different than your first plan, and that isn’t a failure. And when it is, remember: failure is an opportunity to learn.
- Let go of your self imposed rules of what homeschooling/life has to look like and perfectionism.
- Don’t compare yourself! God made you unique, as well as each of your children, your marriage, and your individual family. Go to Him to set your agenda, not to social media.
- Find a community where you can be encouraged.
