X-Factor in Your Homeschool

You are the most important X-Factor in Your Homeschool! You are the Key Ingredient to Homeschool Success. Dear Homeschool Parent stop selling yourself short.  You are valuable and you are the reason your homeschool exists and YOU are the central ingredient!

Define X factor

  • a noteworthy special talent or quality
  • a variable in a given situation that could have the most significant impact on the outcome.
  • an unknown or unexplained element that makes something more interesting or valuable (Collins)
  • a quality that you cannot describe that makes someone very special (Cambridge)
  • a circumstance, quality, or person that has a strong but unpredictable influence (Merriam-Webster)
  • When people describe someone they like, they often mention their qualities. One of these qualities is something elusive they can't explain. (Thrive Global)

Looking back over the years that I have been homeschooling I've come to realise that playing the comparison game is one of the biggest detailers of my journey. Remain committed to being true to yourself. - Stop comparing what you are doing to what other homeschooling families are doing.  As the mom you are UNIQUELY qualified to homeschool YOUR family Well.

Remember social media and blogs are not a true reflection of what others are doing nor are they a a list of "I need to do this in order to succeed..." It is better to do a little with excellence than a multitude of things incompletely.

Knowledge is Power. That power is either in your hand or in someone elses. If you don't know what you think or what your goals are then there will be someone out there who is only too happy to lead you a merry dance and convince you to spend your money with them.

Knowing why you are doing something 
is the first step in being empowered 
to follow through with your choices.
