What I wish I had known about homeschooling would fill a book! There are so many misconceptions I held and so many mistakes I made through the year – sometimes my bank account suffered, I spent so much money on the “right” curriculum or the “right” books. Many of us homeschool for years but never take the time to think about what we should know about homeschooling! In this episode I invite some of my friends and fellow podcasters to drop in and share their ideas and best practices with you! Suzanne Nunn, Jean Burk, and Meredith Curtis join me today to help you learn some hidden gems and ways to avoid homeschool “burn-out” or worse — give up! We are here to come alongside, encourage you and bring you the help and support that you need.
