Bringing Children Home and DeCompartmentalizing Your Life
We live such fast, fragmented lives, often having one personality for home, one for work, one for church, and one for our friends. Sometimes we feel like we actually have multiple personalities, and too many lives pulled in too many directions!  Children who were in institutional schools often need some special attention and time to destress from past situations.  DeCompartmentalizing our lives make them so much easier to live.  Homeschooling is NOT a recreation of the Public or Private School.  It is a much different and easier life! Randi shares how homeschool families can begin to think in a new way, bringing all their individual parts into one comprehensive whole, allowing more efficiency, integration and relaxation.  When we quit compartmentalizing, we get rid of the “I’m over scheduled” syndrome and the “fake” lives.  Our lives can start anew in a whole different and better direction.
