Homeschool Moms - Let's Encourage Each Other! on The Homeschool Post

One of the most important things every homeschool family needs is some kind of support system. It's easy to recognize that children and teens need positive interactions with their peers, but let's not overlook the importance of like-minded friends and mentors for moms. We all experience times along the way when we feel discouraged, overwhelmed, or even tempted to give it up; and an understanding friend or mentor is exactly what we need to encourage and advise us. Although homeschooling isn't viewed with the same skepticism or hostility that it used to be, it's still not quite mainstream, and many homeschooling families don't have the full support of their extended families or feel rather alone in their churches or friendship circles. We need to continue to develop the support and encouragement of our local homeschooling communities.

Homeschool Moms, we need each other! We need the friendships and the support of moms who are on the same road. And as valuable as online message boards and virtual communities are, whenever possible, we should look to find our encouragement in real life interactions. The other moms in your homeschool co-op, in your umbrella group, or wherever your encounter other homeschoolers - those moms need you and you need them. 

Join me over at The Homeschool Post where I share some thoughts on giving and getting support from other homeschool moms. And as always, you'll find lots of helpful articles there about all kinds of homeschool topics.

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

Isn't it lovely to find a kindred spirit, especially in an unexpected way? I recently met a homeschool mom while waiting for my daughter at an audition. We were deep into conversation over coffee before we even discovered the commonality. It was a delightful surprise!
