Mom and Teacher? How Do I Do Both?
How do I be my kids' mom and teacher at the same time?
The answer: You already are.
Being a mom means you already are a teacher. You have been teaching your children since they were born.
But, that’s not what you mean, right? I know, but you needed to hear that first.
What you want to know is how to balance being mom and teacher at the same time. Easy.
That’s it. You don’t have to change in order to become your children’s teacher. What are you good at?
Are you a good cook? Teach your children how to cook.
Are you a musician? Teach your children music.
Teach your children what you are good at and then go on from there.
If you try to be someone different, you and your children will have problems going forward. Your children are used to how you do things, so why would you do things differently?
Now, that’s not to say that you can't grow in your weaknesses. Growing and changing is a way of life and how to improve your life and the life for your family.
Make a list of your strengths and weaknesses. Use your strengths to teach your children now and grow your weaknesses to make their education complete.
