Spread Too Thin – HIRL Episode 77

Free Homeschooling Podcast about stress during the holidaysThis is our final installment in our mini-series of episodes called: Surviving the Holidays. This episode is all about being spread too thin during the holidays. We begin the discussion talking about the unique aspect that holidays can bring to a homeschooling mom.

You are already dealing with a full plate and often the holiday season is just one more thing. Next, if we are being really honest, we will admit that the holidays are pre-designed to stress out moms, because everything falls on their shoulders. Lastly, what about “mom guilt” during the holidays?

We continue and conclude this episode with a discussion about how to redeem the Christmas holidays and some practical suggestions on keeping yourself from becoming spread to thin. Tune in and don’t miss this one.
