When your homeschool looks different from everyone else’s, it can be challenging to stay confident.
My homeschool doesn’t look like everyone else’s.
And neither does Kara’s. Or Shawna’s.
Today, I’m sharing resources for parents of homeschoolers who thrive in an environment that is … well… different.
When Your Homeschool Looks Different From Everyone Else’s
Please know you aren’t alone and remember this: You were your child’s first teacher.
(And that means you’ve got this.)
Cait and Kara chat with Shawna Wingert about homeschooling
In this episode, the sisters chat with one of their most favorite people: Shawna Wingert. Shawna is a writer, speaker, author, and homeschool mom to two amazing boys with special needs. Do you ever feel like your homeschool doesn’t or can’t look like the homeschool next door, or the family at church or co-op, or even all the families on the internet? Shawna joins the sisters to remind you that it’s okay, and that just because you have to do things a little differently, that doesn’t mean what you are doing is less.
