These are challenging times for everyone, but for parents trying to juggle homeschooling, cleaning, cooking, work commitments and the ordinary demands of life with children, each day can feel overwhelming.
What I've found time and time again is that we humans do better when we feel a sense of connection with others as we navigate difficult times.
I've been touched by how uplifting our weekly Better Together Monday gatherings have been. It's been wonderful to connect with parents from around the world, answering questions, offering homeschooling tips, and sharing ideas for combating feelings of loneliness and isolation.
If you've been feeling a little wobbly or would simply like to feel that you're part of a network of parents around the world going through some of the same things you're dealing with, please join me each Monday at 11:00 am Pacific time--or watch the replay soon after each get together.
These are free events and our gatherings are every week.
