Thank you for your support, I really appreciate it.
Love affirmations and am sure these will help parents and children. Having said that with children who are now home-educated and confident compared with their over-schooled mum and teenage brother who are wracked with lack of confidence, I am starting to believe that home education will become ever more popular. #TriumphantTales
