If we didn’t love our kids to the moon and back, we wouldn’t be homeschooling, but sometimes they drive us crazy!! Often we experience guilt for feeling this way, after all, aren’t we supposed to love having our kids at home? My guess is that many of us do love having our kids at home…most of the time, but I doubt there is one homeschooling mom out there wouldn’t admit to the fact that sometimes, they drive her crazy!
So instead of hiding and pretending we aren’t struggling or only complaining about our struggles, let’s move toward problem solving. More than that, let’s(as the Bible says) spur one another on toward love and good works by talking about how to handle those times when (shhh…) we really aren’t liking our kids.
As an older mom, I have found that there are typically 3 reasons that I’m not enjoying my kids. I share these in the podcast along with ways to move toward allowing God to use these times for good in our own lives and in the lives of our kids!
