Do you ever face Christmas guilt? Does the comparison trap beat you up this time of year? Ditch the Christmas guilt and face the reality that the number of presents under the tree isn’t what is important this time of year.
Hello! Today is Tuesday and I am answering YOUR homeschool questions.
Today’s question comes from Lyn. She asks,
“How do you do Christmas? As a one income homeschool family, it is hard to keep up with what everyone else seems to be getting their kids”
Hey Lyn! Okay, first of all, let me just say the comparison trap is NOT an easy trap to follow. So, just don’t. I promise, one day your kids are going to look back on their childhood and they are not going to remember everything they got for Christmas. They will, however, remember the time you spent with them. You can’t get that time back, and I guarantee you they won’t want to trade it for a toy that will be tossed in a year or less.
Check out how we do Christmas in the video below!
I hope that helps you some this holiday season Lynn, and hopefully, a few others got something out of it too.
And if you’d like to see YOUR questions answered send them to misty at joy in the journey dot net. I’d love to answer them for you!
