Home education How to deal with naysayers

As homeschooling parents, we have to overcome many obstacles and hurdles, to provide out children with the education and lifestyle we want for them. When you first begin, one of the biggest barriers to home education, is dealing with naysayers.

In those beginning months and years of home education, many of us are fragile. The slightest bump in the road can shatter our confidence and leave us questioning our decision to homeschool. And so, when people around us find fault in our homeschooling, it can send us into a negative spiral, of self-doubt and shame.

So what do you do when someone tells you that you shouldn’t homeschool your children?

In episode 34 of the Raising Mums podcast, I discuss how to deal with naysayers, in a way that will leave you feeling empowered, rather than ashamed.

WATCH THIS VIDEO!

The key to dealing with naysayers is to identify if they are truly coming from a place of concern, or simply feeding their own ego.

In both situations, put yourself into their position and respond with love and compassion.

This doesn’t mean that you can’t stand up for yourself. If you are being mistreated, you must! But do it with compassion, and you will leave the situation feeling more empowered, and confident in your decision to home educate your kids.

Can I Homeschool if I’m NOT a Teacher?

Many parents shy away from homeschooling as they doubt their own abilities to teach because they believe they do not have the ‘right’ qualifications. Does your level of education really determine your ability to homeschool your own children? Is the school teacher more qualified than the parent to teach their child? Do you need a degree to homeschool or is love for your children and learning enough?

In Episode 45 of the Raising Mums podcast, I discuss whether parents need qualifications to homeschool their children.

Do I need to be a teacher to homeschool?

  • You do not need qualifications to homeschool your children
  • No teacher can match you, as a parent, in devotion, dedication, and love. You would do whatever it takes.
  • The teaching model in school is very different from homeschooling.
  • No one knows their child as well as you do.
