When you think of a homeschool mom, what comes to mind? Have you considered gift ideas for a homeschool mom to shower her with love and appreciation?
Being a homeschool mom/family is certainly a unique calling from God. It’s unique in the sense that most families don’t homeschool.
We all have giftings and callings, which altogether makes us unique. I believe, it’s important to acknowledge and appreciate those people who invest in our lives, whether it’s a friend, coach, pastor or homeschool mom.
Show Your Appreciation
Families that choose to homeschool, particularly moms who are the homemaker and teacher among so many other things, tend to sacrifice a lot to give their children the best nurturing and care, not just in logical things, but the approach to learning and character development in it.
Not all homeschool families have the same goals or outcomes when it comes to homeschooling, or experience the same benefits based on these outcomes.
But one thing I do know, is that showing appreciation and gratitude to a homeschool mom is important.
Whether you have a homeschool mom-friend, your wife is the main homeschool teacher to the children, or you’re a child of a homeschool family, what a great way to show a little appreciation for the hard work and effort a homeschool mom has put in, by perhaps giving her a little something she wasn’t expecting.
Self-Care Is Not Earned
Although I’m a homeschool mom myself, and I really do have all kinds of ideas of things I’d like. But, I’d sooner buy things for our home, homeschool, family or someone else, rather than investing in myself.
But, this kind of thinking just isn’t right.
I’m not saying I’ve “earned” or “deserve” anything, but what I am saying, is that as homeschool moms, we need to think that investing in ourselves is worth it. We do need to stop putting ourselves last and instead give ourselves room to care and love on ourselves.
So I put a question out there to some homeschool moms and asked what they thought might be the gift ideas for a homeschool mom, and this is what they came up with!
