Strive and Thrive: High School Encouragement
Recently, I found this must-see blog link-up called Home School No Fear High!
There are some great articles I found and thought I would share this encouragement with my own readers.
Homeschooling can be hard enough but the thought for some home school parents, to home home school through their teens is REALLY scary. I hope to find more resources and blog link-ups like these that share what many of us often feel and encounter with our teens. This article "Encouragement of a Friend" is really wonderful.
I, myself, have a friend that I share just about everything with she is another homeschooling mom who has boys the same age as my youngest.
Right now we have been and supporting and encouraging each other in teaching mathematics. It's helpful to have someone you can go to and share things with. Someone who you know who won't judge you for your opinions or short-comings. A friend who has an honest heart and will tell you not what you want to hear but what she really thinks and what is on her heart. We help and encourage each other~ it can be a wonderful thing.
Don't be afraid to let people into your life and home school that you find you have a connection with and can encourage you. It makes the journey so worthwhile and enriches your life in ways that you never realized it could.
Until next time~
