Welcome to our blog!

Welcome to the SHEAF Blog.

Despite our best intentions, we're not great at keeping this blog updated with our latest happenings. We are, however, definitely an active group, meeting at least once each week during term time.

If you'd like to make contact with Dunedin home educators, our contact details are in the column, below right.

We send out a weekly email newsletter with details of upcoming events, courses, gatherings etc.

You can also find us on Facebook (page is visible whether you're a facebook user or not)

Have a look through this blog to see the types of events we have organised in the past. You'll also find links to other blogs and articles that we find useful or informative, on the off-chance that you'll appreciate them too :~) (Look for these more general blog-posts under the label "Weekend Reading")

If you're not currently on our email list and would like to contact us, please email us at the address you can see in the column on the right. We'd love to hear from you!

Weekend Reading - Did you order a sub?

And not a 'subway sandwich', as I thought when I first saw this post title - a 'substitution'. In other words - would you like to tag out of this lifestyle for a while? This article deals specifically with the pressures experienced by people in the 'sandwich generation'.
When homeschool moms are called upon to care for aging parents, it definitely puts a squeeze on time and energy. It can leave many moms wishing for a sub.

We teach our children; we care for our homes, and we handle the many interruptions that come into our lives. The reality is that as homeschool parents we can’t call a sub.

We can, however, let go of the guilt and see our roles and lives differently.
And yeah, they do repeatedly talk about 'Moms' as if it's only women who feel this pressure. This is a helpful article for Dads too.
