Bringing your kiddo home this fall?

Here are four things you need to consider when beginning homeschooling:

Your goal is to consider what an education is anyway and read about unschoolingdeschooling, and learning

I compiled a Homeschool Mama Reading List just for you! These books are ones that have taught me everything that has helped me structure my homeschool.

You Know You’re a Homeschool Mom when…

1. You go on a trip away from the kiddos and always return home with pencils and books. Keep it educational.

2. You insist that you all sit outside in winter jackets on frozen fallen logs so you can enjoy some time in the great outdoors…with your math workbooks…in the middle of February.

3. Listening to the news begins a half hour current events discussion, then history lesson.

4. Your kids know to bring their history reading on the half hour drive to extracurricular activities. And the historical contexts will be discussed before they get out of the minivan for piano lessons or soccer practice.

5. Your kids’ birthday parties include full families.

6. Your 14 year old can independently do the weekly grocery shopping, even paying for it at the till (and they all know your PIN numbers).

7. You get your kiddo to write a resume and cover letter at aged 14: never too young for a part-time job.

8. The 12 year old has started her catering business and invoiced her first customer, learning about capital costs and loan interest.

9. Your 9 year old makes her own sleepover breakfast for her friends: pancakes and sausages with fruit salad.

10. Your non-homeschooling friends expect you to arrive at their home en masse. All 6 of you.

and finally…

11. You realize that you’ll have three kids gone for most of a summer week, and you think to yourself….ahhh, how do I find classes for the fourth? Even if they’re this cute…

Are you considering homeschooling your kids?

I’ve got a free mini-course that introduces you to me, so I can get you from “I don’t know where to start, to I’ve got a plan.”

I’ve got a full course that inspires you to consider what an education is anyway, and get you thinking and planning for your child’s education.

I’ve got a course that will get you from “I don’t think I can do this, I’m too uncertain, nervous, or afraid” to “I know I can do this, I’ve got this girlfriend.”

How to Homeschool 101 will give you Everything you Need to Know to Get Started, Create a Personalized Education, and Gain Confidence in Creating your Routine.
