"Clearly, Teresa writes from years of valuable experience, and so generously shares them with new homeschool momma for their benefit. If you're trying to figure out how to get started taking the stress out of your homeschool day, the section where she shares her own story of overwhelm is pure gold! You'll find solid, experience-tested examples from her own life on creating an environment that is conducive to real education. Also, take note of the authors she recommends as her influencers. If you have to pick a section to start somewhere, there it is!"

"My homeschooling journey has included a growing pile of books that I have read, browsed, or barely got past the first chapter. This book is just delightful and a gem! It’s not only helpful and inspiring but also funny. The author is like that no nonsense brave friend who is looking out for you and your well being as a homeschooling mama. We all need that friend and I am taking my time as I work my way through the chapters and enjoying it all. I love the section on overcoming overwhelm, grappling with perfectionism and minding and working through our emotions. This book is worth its weight in gold. Find a quiet place to read, bring a warm cup of tea, and enjoy!"

"I was just reading through the chapter in this book last night about anger and failure. Whewww, like you’re speaking right to me. Thank you for being so honest about those things. Every night I can’t wait to jump back into your book. Thank you for so authentically sharing about the moments and feelings we all experience, but rarely go into detail about."
"Wonderful book. Down to Earth and relatable. A must-read for homeschooling moms."

"Parents take on homeschooling with gusto, but often find themselves burning out in the first year by trying to do too much and being the ultimate educator. Teresa takes on the topic with a book overflowing with ideas to make a parents and child’s day go smoother. Letting go of unrealistic expectations and the school model of education goes a long way in acquiring serenity in home education. Understanding how the uniqueness of home education unfolds and why children never stop learning, no matter how much teaching is done, is key to success. Homeschool Mama Self-Care: Nurturing the Nurturer, with a cup of tea, is essential for all new-to-homeschooling parents and guardians."
