What's the next step forward when my child is behind?

Let's make this year our best yet inshaAllah - a Muslim Homeschool

As the summer holidays begin to draw to a close, many of us are getting ready for the start of a new school year.
Whether that means buying new school uniforms or new pyjamas homeschool books, we're looking ahead with anticipation of a fresh start in mind. 

We're standing on a new day, and have another year in front of us, if Allah permits us to live. 

Whatever has happened in the past, whatever we feel our children have missed or we have neglected to teach, let it go; we can't change what has been and gone.

Homeschool Planner 2018-19 designed with Muslim home educators in mind

Homeschool planner designed for Muslim home educators

Nothing beats the warm fuzzy feeling when an empty homeschool planner presents itself; an invitation to recreate our homeschool just as a fresh coat of paint gives a new lease of life to old tired walls.

I'm super excited to share our brand new Homeschool planner, and I'm even more excited to start using it myself!

This production has truly been a labour of love....truth be told I am a bit of a planning nerd. Although I have to tell you, sometimes the planning is a little more fun than the implementation of it all.

Its specifically designed for the Muslim Homeschooler, with both Islamic as well as secular quotes relating to education scattered throughout to sprinkle a little inspiration when you need it.

Helping our children develop a positive growth mindset

Growth mind set poster for kids

As cliché as they may be, inspirational quotes can go a long way in helping to change mind set when heard often enough. 
They are the little reminders which cheer you on to keep going, when everything else inside of yourself is trying to tear you down and make you stop.

Right now, the internet is flooded with a wave of information set to help children develop a positive growth mind set. And I can see the value in this.

How our children see their own capabilities can have a huge impact on what they actually go out and achieve. And so it is important to help them develop an inner self belief, which tells them that they can reach sucess, if they don't give up inshaAllah.

So many kids write themselves off as failures, because they don't understand something straight away, or they made mistakes, or something they are working on isn't perfect. 
They see the mountainous challenge in front of them, and don't believe they can ever climb over it.  

Its that little niggling inner voice of self sabotage that we want to silence inshaAllah. 

They need to know, sucess doesn't occur by random chance to some people. Rather, those who are successful in their game have worked hard, made mistakes, and kept going to get to the top.
