Have you ever REALLY worried about one of your kids?

What should you do if you don’t feel like you read aloud well?

What’s the point of poetry memorization?

What would you tell a mom who is confused about all the different homeschooling philosophies and methods?

How do I know that I’m doing enough?

What about homeschooling high school?

These are all questions you might have…

I’ve had them too.

Andrew Pudewa and I answered questions just like these at all five Great Homeschool Conventions in 2022. Today on the podcast, we’re sharing a recording of that session with you.

In this episode, you’ll hear: 

  • Why the right homeschool philosophy is the one that works for you and your kids
  • How poetry memorization expands active vocabulary
  • Why showing up with what you have is enough
  • But what about homeschooling high school???

You’re not alone.

That’s what I most want you to know after listening to this podcast episode.

This past year I had the privilege of speaking alongside Andrew Pudewa from the Institute for Excellence in Writing at all 5 Great Homeschool Conventions throughout the US.

We decided to pitch each other some of the best questions we’ve ever gotten about books, reading aloud, homeschooling, homeschooling high school– it’s all in here.

Since it’s the start of a new school year for many of us, we thought it would be a great time to share our session here on the podcast to give you a little boost of encouragement. 

You’re not alone. There are a lot of us starting a new school year alongside you, and we’re all pretty much jumping in unprepared because…well, that’s how homeschooling works.
