A homeschool mom spends a lot of her time on her children. She awakes to feed them breakfast and get started on the school day. It’s so easy to get lost in the world of being a homeschool mom that you forget a few things. Here are 5 reminders every homeschooling mom needs.

#2. Your kids are learning.

#3. The small moments do count.
That five minutes you just spent on the couch reading to your child, those moments do count. The one minute you took to talk to your child, instead of yell at them, that moment does count. Those small moments with your child count, don’t let them slip by you.
