Brave Writer Precept #8: Help Helps
The eighth Brave Writer precept is: We acknowledge challenges and face them bravely. We reach out to others, knowing that help helps.
It’s really hard to be a homeschooler without support. We make brave decisions every day to show up and believe that what we have to offer our children is enough to give them the education they deserve.
One of the ways you can stave off the feeling of inadequacy is to find like-minded parents. I love to say that help helps. I’m not a big fan of the parenting strategy that tells children when they’re bored that they must solve that boredom on their own, for example. Similarly, I would never say to a parent who is struggling with parenting or education, figure it out on your own.
We are all better when we provide each other with support.
