    Schools are Closed... What Now?

    Schools are Closed... What Now?

    The government announced that schools in the UK would not reopen this January 2021 for at least 6 weeks. This has thrown many families into a state of worry and, in some cases, panic as they come to terms with the fact that they will have to homeschool their children through this lockdown.







    Families are concerned how this lockdown will affect their children's education, and want to know how they can effectively homeschool them.







    Parents also want to know how they're going to be productive and get everything done, whilst also homeschooling their children.















    In this episode of Raising Mums, I share a realistic and sustainable way to homeschool your children during the lockdown, and give you several time management hacks to help you stay productive during this difficult time.







    WATCH THIS VIDEO!









    I hope this has helped you if you're suddenly homeschooling your children during this lockdown.







    You can watch more episodes of Raising Mums on YouTube or listen to the Podcast.

    How much does Homeschooling Cost?

    How much does Homeschooling Cost?

    Let’s talk money! How much does homeschooling cost?







    If you're trying to plan ahead, and work out if home education is a feasible dream for your family, you need to know how much it's going to cost.







    You need real figures, real numbers!















    Typically if you’re searching online for the cost to home educate your children, you’ll hear a lot of advice that sounds something like,







    “Homeschooling is possible for families of every budget. With careful planning you can homeschool for very little.”







    And honestly, I’ve said that myself!







    But after thinking about it, I realised that that statement is not very helpful at all!







    What would be more helpful would be a number of how much it costs a real family to homeschool their children today.







    And that’s what I'm going to do here...







    I'm going to tell you how much homeschooling costs our family!







    I've NEVER seen this done before, but in this episode of Raising Mums ...







    I get out my calculator and talk about:👉How much does Homeschooling cost each year👉 What are our biggest expenses?👉 How could we reduce these costs?







    Being honest about the costs of homeschooling will help you to know if homeschooling is truly a realistic ambition for your family, and it'll help you to plan ahead.

    Charlotte Mason for the Muslim Homeschool

    Charlotte Mason for the Muslim Homeschool

    Can the Charlotte Mason philosophy of education work for a Muslim homeschool? An increasing number of Muslim Homeschools are adopting and embracing the Charlotte Mason philosophy in their homeschools...but why?







    In this episode of Raising Mums, I discuss why we use the Charlotte Mason philosophy in our Muslim homeschool and discuss if the Charlotte Mason approach to homeschooling is suitable for Muslims?















    This blog-post contains affiliate links. For more information see Disclaimer.







    In this this episode of Raising Mums I answer the following questions:







    👉 What is the Charlotte Mason philosophy all about?







    👉 Is a Charlotte Mason education suitable and for the Muslim homeschool? Is it relevant?







    👉 Do I need to replace or miss any part of it out?







    👉 What are the advantages of Charlotte Mason homeschooling compared to others?







    👉 Will it prepare my children for higher education? For life?







    👉 Why are so many Muslim homeschoolers switching to Charlotte Mason?

Peaceful

Dr Gemmas podcast is one of the only ones I honestly listen to. She is so real, gives a tone of advice and most of all gives you that sense of peace that you are doing fine and that you will be okay.. there just a lot of pressure and confusion and self doubt in homeschooling but her podcast make things so much easier.
