HS 160: The Introverted Homeschool Mom with Jamie Martin


It is no secret that I am an introvert and introverts have a special place in my heart. There is nothing wrong with extroverts, but getting the world to understand the need for a little quiet and time alone and not take it personally is hard.

It doesn’t mean one is shy (I’m totally not.) or awkward (debatable). But it does fly in the face of our very social world at times — especially when you are a mother and even more so when you are a homeschooling mother. We have chosen to be with our kids all day because we thing that is what is best for them, but we do that knowing the toll it will take on us and knowing we will need to compensate for all that together time. It can totally lead to guilt.

That is why I was so excited when I found out about Jamie Martin’s new book The Introverted Mom. Now there is someone who understands and can offer help. And on today’s podcast, Jamie does just that.

There is something for every mom on this show — introverts and extroverts both. I hope you enjoy.

    When you can’t even listen to the episode because your extroverted children won’t leave you alone on the night that was supposed to be set aside for quiet so you can get rejuvenated.
