Unrealistic Expectations – HIRL Episode 103

Free Homeschooling podcast about parenting with unrealistic expectations.

Join us for this week’s episode as we chat with Kathy Lee, mom of many and co-author of The Homegrown Preschooler. Kathy is a child development specialist who has homeschooled and raised kids and now speaks all over the country to parents (often with several of her kids in tow!)

We discuss the growing trend of high academic expectations at younger ages, play-based preschool, and developing relationships with our young kids and teens that last well into their adulthood.
