Parents, If You Lack This Quality, Your Homeschool Is DOOMED

As a homeschooling parent, there is something far more important than how much money you have, how stocked your supply shelves are, or how intelligent you are.

This one quality can be enough to make or break your homeschool. Find out what it is by watching my latest video on YouTube.

Homeschool Writing Tips for the Reluctant Learner

As someone who has always enjoyed writing, when I began homeschooling and realized not all of my kids were as enthusiastic about it as I am, I became a woman on a mission to find ways to make writing more palatable for them.

Today on my YouTube channel, I shared some things I’ve learned along the way.

Help! My 7-Year-Old Still Can’t Read!

We homeschooling parents are professional worriers sometimes, don’t you think? It’s understandable. We’re paving a route for our families in a direction we’ve likely never traveled before.

One of the most common concerns homeschoolers possess is literacy. After all, it’s foundational to functioning in society.

Unfortunately, though, we often place arbitrary schoolish timelines on our children for no other reason than that it’s all we know.

Take advantage of the flexibility afforded to us in homeschooling and break that school mold.

My Response to NPR’s “How Should We Regulate Homeschooling” Podcast

I never post videos on Saturdays, but today’s going to be different.

After stewing over NPR’s “How Should We Regulate Homeschooling” podcast all day yesterday (after many, many people sent it to me), I finally caved in at 12:39am and “let my feelings out” via a video.

To sum up my mood during the recording, four words bring it together nicely – I HAVE HAD ENOUGH.

Unfortunately, I discovered most of them the hard way.

Join me for today’s video about 10 ways to sabotage your homeschool.

Introducing the Hegelian Dialectic and Compulsory Schooling Series…

Happy New Year, everyone! I’m so glad 2019 is over. 😭

Today on my channel I shared a video from the Patreon archives: the first in a series about the Hegelian Dialectic and Compulsory Schooling.

If you aren’t sure what the Hegelian Dialectic is, simply put, think of problem-reaction-solution.

There is so much more behind schooling than the ruse of education. Schooling was/is simply a means to a pre-planned end.

Have a great first day of 2020. 🙂
