Overcoming Fears and Doubts

Homeschooling fears got you down? Parenting doubts keeping you paralyzed?

Does the worry and fear wear you down? 

Erica Kesilman joined me on this episode to talk about the fears and doubts we face as homeschoolers and parents and how we can overcome them. 

Erica helps parents grow strong family relationships without yelling, guilt or overwhelm. She utilizes trauma-sensitive, somatic, body-centered therapies for nervous system healing of complex developmental, psychological, neurological, or emotional challenges so you can realize inner security, safety, and optimal health and wellness. She does this through workshops, group programs or one-on-ones. 

She has over 20 years of experience working with families in a wide range of capacities. Erica holds two M.Ed. degrees in Educational Administrations & Leadership, a B.A. in Clinical Psychology with Certifications in Trauma Coaching, Conscious Parenting, Somatic Attachment Therapies, EFT and Breathwork. 

She is a homeschooling mom to 3. 

In This Episode

In this episode Erica shares her own experiences of the fear of imperfections. From the classroom to unschooling wasn't as easy for her as you may think. Just because Erica has the education credentials doesn't mean it was a breeze. She's been working through the demands of perfectionism. Demands that compromised what is most important to her- the integrity of the relationship with her kids.

We talk about:

  • The fear of imperfections and making mistakes and what to do when we were never modelled that for ourselves.
  • How we can begin to go through the repair process with our kids
  • Looking at how our child responds and how you respond when there is challenging behaviour
  • Focusing on the "glimmers"
  • Building in academics by working with the child
  • Creating rhythms or patterns that can build the skills 
  • Inner Resources
  • Soft Structure
  • Conscious Parenting
  • Going from automatic to intentional
  • Self Forgiveness Practice
