The government announced that schools in the UK would not reopen this January 2021 for at least 6 weeks. This has thrown many families into a state of worry and, in some cases, panic as they come to terms with the fact that they will have to homeschool their children through this lockdown.
Families are concerned how this lockdown will affect their children’s education, and want to know how they can effectively homeschool them.
Parents also want to know how they’re going to be productive and get everything done, whilst also homeschooling their children.
In this episode of Raising Mums, I share a realistic and sustainable way to homeschool your children during the lockdown, and give you several time management hacks to help you stay productive during this difficult time.
Can the Charlotte Mason philosophy of education work for a Muslim homeschool? An increasing number of Muslim Homeschools are adopting and embracing the Charlotte Mason philosophy in their homeschools…but why?
In this episode of Raising Mums, I discuss why we use the Charlotte Mason philosophy in our Muslim homeschool and discuss if the Charlotte Mason approach to homeschooling is suitable for Muslims?

In this this episode of Raising Mums I answer the following questions:
? What is the Charlotte Mason philosophy all about?
? Is a Charlotte Mason education suitable and for the Muslim homeschool? Is it relevant?
? Do I need to replace or miss any part of it out?
? What are the advantages of Charlotte Mason homeschooling compared to others?
? Will it prepare my children for higher education? For life?
? Why are so many Muslim homeschoolers switching to Charlotte Mason?
Launch Your Homeschool is an online course that will you hold your hand and walk you through the beginning stages of homeschooling, built upon the framework of the Charlotte Mason philosophy.
I teach you how to choose the right subjects for your homeschool, how to chose the right resources and plan out your year to create a homeschool experience that aligns with the values and beliefs of your family.
I show you the essential teaching techniques that you’ll need to now to get started. There’s even an entire module on how to manage your time so you can still cook, keep the house tidy and take care of yourself, all whilst homeschooling your children!
