Is Self-Care a Snare?

Hey homeschoolers!

Recently, a woman on my Psychowith6 Facebook page, made a comment on the self-care movement. I wasn’t aware that self-care was a movement, but she got me thinking. Previously on this podcast in an episode called How to Be Happy and Homeschool, Too, I discussed the importance of what could be called self-care. In fact, I frequently talk about the importance of it during my sessions at Great Homeschool Conventions. I suddenly found myself wondering if I had been teaching wrong things. So I wanted to address the topic in today’s episode. Is self-care a snare? I am tempted to tell you the right way to think about this issue. But instead, I am going to give you some considerations for you to take to the Lord.

Sponsor

Before we do that I want to think my sponsor for this episode, FabuLingua.

Helping your child learn a second language, especially when you don’t speak it, can seem intimidating!

The vocabulary lists, the grammar drills… there’s a better way. The magic of children’s stories makes it fun and easy for your child to learn a second language like Spanish.

The most important factor in learning a new language is how much ‘input’ of that new language gets absorbed. It doesn’t have to be perfectly understood – just comprehensible.

That’s where FabuLingua comes in. Their app provides a huge amount of written and spoken ‘comprehensible input’ through beautiful, interactive children’s stories.

FabuLingua was created for families who are seeking a convenient, effective tool to support their language learning goals – in a fun and effortless way. FabuLingua kids don’t ask to ‘learn’ with the app – they ask to ‘play’ with it!

Their mission is to make it fun and accessible to children, so that learning another language is something they are excited to do!

New stories are released each month and you can explore your first story free. Look for FabuLingua on the App Store or Google Play Store. That’s F-A-B-U-L-I-N-G-U-A. FabuLingua – magical stories that teach kids Spanish.
