Homeschooling goes far beyond choosing curriculum and planning field trips. It is equally as important to establish a firm grasp on why we are homeschooling and what our homeschool philosophy is.

I so enjoyed this conversation with Angela where we had a chance to get honest about the ups and downs of our homeschooling journeys. We chatted about important mindset shifts we have had to embrace along the way and old paradigms we are moving away from.

Are you considering homeschooling but you are fearful? Are you in the thick of it and need some encouragement to keep going? Join us for this inspiring conversation!

In this episode, we cover:

  • Making schooling decisions based on each individual child’s needs
  • Finding the balance between giving yourself grace and pushing yourself
  • Tips for keeping little ones occupied while homeschooling older siblings
  • Freeing yourself from expectations and embracing the flexible schedule of homeschooling
  • Encouraging learning to extend beyond textbooks and worksheets into valuable life skills
  • Recognizing perfectionism in our kids and helping them learn through failure
  • Reframing our perspective about what is most important for our children to learn
  • Math curriculum reviews for kids that struggle with math
  • Protecting our kids’ mindsets around their ability to learn
  • What if you are nervous to homeschool?
  • How will homeschooled kids turn out?
