Homeschool Mama Retreat
equipping you with tools to thrive, not just survive your homeschool so you can nurture the nurturer
Hi, I’m Teresa.
With two years research, fifteen years homeschool practice (twenty one years parenting), and four kids later, I've learned a thing or two about living this homeschool mama life.
Somewhere in my third year homeschooling, I was done.
In my heart, I was mouthing the words "help me" as the school bus drove by. I found myself reacting to kids' squabbles or perpetually irritated that a child wouldn't show interest in his studies, by saying, "If you don't...then you're getting on that bus Monday morning."
I knew I didn't actually want to research the local school's telephone number, but I definitely didn't know what else to do.
I was done.
I didn't have time for me.
I didn't feel good in my body.
I felt overwhelmed.
I was bored by yet another repeat of the same curriculum.
I did everything as perfectly as I could, but had this feeling it wasn't good enough.
I wondered if I was doing right by my kids' education.
Until I watched a Brene Brown TedX Talk and realized I didn't even factor ME into my life. What did I need?
I learned I had to take care of ME to take care of my kids.
