When I started my homeschooling mom career, I initially didn't seek out other homeschooling families. I wanted to get started and find my own way before taking in the thoughts, ideas, and opinions of others on the journey. I didn't want to become confused or discouraged because of information overload. After I got my footing, I slowly started to venture out in seek different ways to interact with other homeschooling families.
Many of us are on the road to homeschooling to the end of our children's academic career. We know homeschooling has its ups and downs. We know that we might not get it all right every single year let alone every single day. Homeschooling isn't a journey that we should travel on alone.
Overall, I am a fan of home school conventions. If you want to know why, take a moment to read A Black Mom's Perspective of Home School Conventions. With that being said, I also have my way of navigating such places in which I am a minority with little if any representation on the committee or speaker roster.
My family and I frequent places that will bring value to our lives because of this my husband and I decided early on that we would participate in conferences and activities even if we were the only Black family or not.
The reason I take this stance is because I know that I can always take what I need and leave the rest. Read "Five Ways I Navigate Homeschool Conventions as a Black Mom" to see how I make the most of homeschooling conferences
