True Confessions of a Mother of Preschoolers

Here are some questions I’ve been asked by busy homeschooling moms:

  • My biggest challenge is keeping my 3-year-old happy and occupied while teaching my 8-year-old.
  • I have a very clingy 9-month old. How does a mom get ANYTHING done with a baby, and how does one move a little one beyond this?

The Multi-Age Homeschool

One of the toughest things about homeschooling is managing multiple ages at once. Since I believe that my job as a mother is to be with my children while they’re learning (see Deuteronomy 6:7 and Proverbs 29:15), I have to figure out how to be with seven different children at once.

Why Parenting Preschoolers Isn't Easy

Homeschooling when you have little toddlers or preschoolers around is a challenge, to say the least.  One of the most challenging parts of being a mom, in fact, is learning how to juggle the multitude of responsibilities that faces you in a day, from parenting various ages of children to handling all the different aspects of a home, sometimes while also maintaining a job or ministry. 

Preschool Planning

If you’re attempting to homeschool while also being a mother to a preschooler (or two or more!), you face two realities:

  1. Your little preschoolers want to spend time with you, too!
  2. Your little preschoolers want to “do school,” too!

It may seem “unloving” to actually plan my time with my little ones, but in reality, I’m a much better mother when I do.

Sonbeams – for preschoolers

I wanted to write a quick recommendation for my friend Candice and her preschool curriculum called Sonbeams. As a firm believer in chores for little ones, I especially love her dry-erase chore charts, one for boys and one for girls.
