Heart of the Matter - Balancing Mom and Teacher

Welcome to the Heart of the Matter Online meme.

While many homeschooling moms know that being a mother includes teaching their children daily there are those who find the 'line' between teaching their homeschooling child and being a mom fuzzy. What are some of the best tips you can offer a new homeschooling mother who is sorting out those gray areas? How do you manage the balance between the two?




To be honest, this is never something I have struggled with. We have a learning lifestyle - we focus on learning. I don't put on a 'teacher hat' to 'do school'. We don't 'do school'. We have our lessons, but they are part of our life, not a separate activity.

Just be the mom. The mom who loves to learn and loves to show her children how much fun it is to learn.
