You are a great mom! Do you need to hear that today as much as I do? As the end of this school year approaches, I find myself asking, “Did I do enough?” And I know I’m not alone. I’m part of a homeschool Facebook group with over 26,000 members and I can’t tell you how many times moms post this question: “Is this enough?”
Because we all schooled differently in this peculiar year, mom comparison surged and self-confidence plummeted. Her kids are thriving with peer interaction at school. Would that have been better for my kids? She’s adding extra projects after virtual school; should I be supplementing too? Her kids are focusing on life skills, nature exploration, and faith. I’m not giving my children all they need. Stop! Hear this: You did a great job! In case there’s any doubt, here’s why.
