Sustainable Homeschooling | Secure your Homeschool for the Future

This week I was LIVE on Facebook and Instagram talking about some of the ways you can ensure you’ll be homeschooling for many more years to come insha’Allah.

I’m speaking to the mum who wants to homeschool, and is planning and preparing for this new adventure.

I’m talking to mum who homeschools now, but feels disheartened. Who feels that it’s not going the way she thought it would, and she feels like she’s failing.

I’m talking to everyone who homeschools sharing my nuggets of wisdom as to how you can continue to homeschool for many years. There are things we can do in our lives, to make homeschooling a sustainable, longterm experience for us.

Next week, Sunday 13th January 2019 at 10am, I’ll be back on Instagram and Facebook LIVE discussing, “Homeschool Under Threat| Homeschooling with a baby.”

I hope I’ll see you there!

Preparing your Homeschool for the New Year

Homeschool prep for New Year

As we move into the New Year, I always recommend that during this time of transition, homeschooling families should take some time to reflect on the successes and failures of the previous year, the lessons learnt, and set some new intentions before pushing ahead into the New Year.

During this time, before beginning your next homeschool term, seek clarity and direction for your family by getting quiet, turning inward, making dua, and asking yourself some very important questions.

WATCH THIS VIDEO

Watch this YouTube video, when I went LIVE on my Facebook and Instagram accounts, and chatted with you about preparing your homeschool for the New Year, and talked you through the questions listed below.

Seek Clarity for your Homeschool

1) What was my favourite homeschool memory of last year?

2) What was my most painful homeschool memory of last year?

3) If you were to summarise the last year homeschooling in one word what would it be?

4) What areas were really successful?

5) What areas/people/topics/activities drained me? What drained the kids?

6) Where can I get help?

7)What can I cut out?

8) Where can we grow, further develop in our homeschool?

9)What areas don’t allign with my homeschool/family vision?

10) What positive change(s) can I implement going forward into the next year?


There are far better things ahead than we ever left behind.

C.S. Lewis

I hope that this video and the questions I’ve posed will help you find the clarity you need moving forward, and help you to live a life with your family that aligns with your values.

If you would like to share the answers to any, or all of the questions above, I would love to hear them! Please leave them for me in the comments below.

I’m Just a Mum…Is that Enough?

I'm Just a Mum...Is that Enough?

This week I was LIVE on the Our Muslim Homeschool Instagram and Facebook accounts talking about a topic very common in mothers, low self-esteem. Do you ever refer to yourself as “Just a Mum?” Then this broadcast is for you!

We talked about:

  • Blame
  • My personal experience with self-doubt
  • 5 Steps to Increasing Your Feelings of Self-worth
  • Mothers with low self-esteem raise children with low self-esteem
  • Q&As

In this episode I spoke from the heart about my experience and gave my sincere advice to any mother who suffers with self-esteem issues.

These 5 steps will increase your self-esteem, so that you don’t say anymore, “I’m a just a mum.”

Instead you’ll say, “I’m a stay at home mum and it’s the best thing that could ever have happened to me!”

Here it is! Enjoy!
