Boundaries for Homeschoolers

Before I became a mom (even before I became a wife), I read a book that impacted me in countless ways: Boundaries by Cloud & Townsend.

 I was inspired to make some much needed changes in my life, and I am still reaping the benefits of how the truths in that book grew me!

The boundaries that I’m currently having to be mindful of look a bit different these days, and I’ve found myself asking the following question before I commit to something new in our schedule.

Does saying YES to this commitment benefit everyone?

And as you can imagine, the answer is oftentimes no.

We’ve gone through various periods of time when we could say YES more than others.

Outside Programs: The morning programs we attended when my boys were little are not a good fit for us right now: the travel, the time commitment, etc.

Story Times/Play Dates: It’s not that we don’t ever do these kinds of things, but they’re not something we’re consistently able to work in to our weekday plans.

Communication: One of the best things I’ve ever done is silence my tech notifications – all of them. Doing so has gifted me with the opportunity to be present with my family.

Questions to Consider:

Do you find yourself filling your schedule with fun activities that pull you away from being able to accomplish the things you know you’ve been called to do at home?
