Don't Pull Your Hair Out

I'm still here. Just super busy in real life and have been limiting my time online.

I thought I'd share with you my post over at The Homeschool Post today...

Am I the only one, or are there any other mothers out there who have at some point lost patience with their children?

I’ve talked with enough Moms to know that this is not an uncommon problem.

As homeschool Moms, we have the privilege of having our children at home with us and experiencing the rich rewards that homeschooling yields. This lifestyle has been a true blessing for my family, and I have a difficult time picturing our life any other way.

However, I do have the occasional day when it seems that my buttons are being pushed – sometimes all at once - and it’s all I can do not to sprout horns and a tail.

Some days I’m more successful than others…sigh.

I really don’t want my children’s memories of their childhood to include an unhappy, irritable, shouting mother. That is not who God created me to be, and that is not the mother He intended for my children.

These are a few strategies I’ve gleaned from other Moms over the years that often help me to cope during moments of frustration...

Please join me at The Post for the rest of my article.

Praying you find encouragement in what you read.
