I’m a Homeschooling mom.
And, for most of my life, I was a homeschooled student.
Growing up, sometimes it worked. Sometimes it didn’t.
With my family… sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.
Want to know what makes the difference?
When I chose fear over love. When I work with “shoulds” rather than “callings”.
I have 3 kids. All very different.
One loved workbooks. Another one used them as a pillow to shed tears into.
And then there’s my son who looks at them, and asks if he can just do sums in his head as it saves paper.
I have a teen who loves core education. A daughter who came to life with the @Oakmeadow curriculum and a son who is unschooling his way through learning… Each unique individual finds their educational grove differently.
So, homeschooling with love means diving past what a child “should know” and rather how they can learn it. What’s their educational language? Visual? Intellectual? Tactile? What makes it resonate?
Sometimes, all it takes is finding that inner key, to unlocking a joyful learning experience. -Christina Fletcher
Christina Fletcher is a Spiritually Aware Parent Coach and Energy Healer who specializes in helping parents become heart centered and aligned to their highest vision of their parenting and of themselves. Through her background and training in religious and self development studies, as well as spirituality and conscious parenting, Christina helps parents dive past the “shoulds” created from their upbringing and society, and release beliefs that hold them back to create authentic, connected relationships with their children, and themselves. Using mindset techniques, practical spiritual tools such as simple meditation, the law of attraction and positive focus, as well as her training and gifts as an energy healer, Christina gives space for a mom or dad to drop into the feeling of satisfaction, alignment and relief, so they can tune in to what their children truly need and work from a centered perspective. She gives practical and spiritual advice on how to tune into a child’s perspective as well as concrete tools to pass on self awareness and mindful living to children as young as 3, so authenticity, emotional awareness, communication and connection can be the foundation for the whole family. Christina is a homeschooling mom of 2 daughters, (ages 16 and 15) and a 9 year old son. She is happily married to her husband Jeff. When their girls were born 10 months apart, Christina parented as she thought she “should”. Scheduled feeds, nights of pacing the floor with crying babies, and getting mad as they got older, she knows what it’s like to feel overwhelmed and in tears through those early years. It wasn’t until her girls were 3 and 4 that she decided her happiness mattered and that she wanted to have fun again. The change transformed everything, creating a powerful relationship with her children which is stronger than ever now that they are teens. When she was pregnant with her son, she became passionate about creating a spiritually aware pregnancy, and her connection with her son prior to his birth was crucial through some family tragedy taking place at that time. This later became the topic of her first book. Christina is passionate about helping parents create deep relationships with their children, from birth until fully grown. But she also knows that deep relationships with others can only be formed from a deep relationship with yourself, so through courses, coaching and her writing, she offers tools for the entire family so they can truly become self aware and present as everything they really are.
