Raising children is a full time job. Raising children on top of holding down a part-time job (or jobs!) from home means life is often chaotic, stressful, extremely fast-paced, but all around rewarding. For some, holding down a side job while being a stay at home mom means bringing in extra income needed for day to day life. For others, it’s a form of holding onto one’s self – the part of yourself that holds onto childhood dreams, career aspirations, and passions outside the realm of child-rearing. It’s a part of how we stay whole, and albeit sometimes arguably, sane.

For all your back to school worries, questioning whether you prepared your child enough doesn’t have to be one of them, thanks to Teach My Learning Kits!

Or one who invests real time and energy into getting to know someone through written correspondence? Or what about a kid who is determined to master an intricate skill or craft? Now is the time to revive some of these classic hobbies that stir imaginations and foster a heart for learning!
