Because life isn’t always roses and daisies. Illness, pregnancy, hospitalization, and crisis or other difficult times occur and everything looks and is topsy-turvy. This is why I’m writing this today.
If I could go back in time to counsel with my younger self, my early homeschooling, worried self, I would tell myself to stop worrying. All of the advice of the homeschool sages like Oliver DeMille, John Holt, Dr. Raymond and Dorothy Moore, John Taylor Gatto, and Resa Steindel is true and to trust my gut and the process. But, if I didn’t have those worries and go through the difficulties I did, I wouldn’t be sitting here right now writing this article with the wisdom that comes from struggle and experience.
