Happy Unplugged Mom Mothers Day


In honor of Mothers, It was a pleasure to chat with three extraordinary women who truly capture the eclectic diversity, wisdom, charm and grace in Motherhood.   We talked about the Mothering aspect of the home education experience and some of the decisions and challenges we independent and non-compulsory Moms have experienced.  These great ladies offered a stunning bouquet of varied responses to some deep questions; beautifully illustrating richness in variety and punctuating the need for personal flexibility.  At the same time, it was such a touching experience in the unspoken bond that threads us together as Moms because our common objective is to provide our children with the best individual experience that we can allowing them to thrive in a family-centered environment that naturally weaves learning into life itself.   I was humbled in their presence and am thankful to them for sharing their insights and time with us.

Cheers to all my fellow Unplugged Moms, here’s to us!  Happy Mothers Day!
