#46 Homeschooling Q&A


One of the awesome things about being a blogger is that companies send me free stuff and even pay me to review their products! Sometimes they pay me a small percentage by affiliate links to track their sales while other times they just send me free product to show and try. This is part of how I support my blog but I want to make sure you know that I turn down 10 times more people than I accept because I only choose products that I would personally buy and recommend. This post is sponsored in one of those ways. For more info read my disclosure policy. And if you think this sounds like a pretty sweet gig, come on over and let me teach you how to do what I do in my blogging course or one of my other courses by clicking here.

Today’s podcast episode is a little bit different than my regular deal because I invited my hubby to join me. I had so many good ideas for today’s podcast and couldn’t decide so we ended up doing it Q&A style and tackling a few different topics in one episode.

This post is your resource for links and additional information about each question we covered: budget, large family, high school, summer school, is homeschooling better than public school, how to tailor your child’s education, how to teach to the family, dealing with multiple ages and stages (homeschooling with babies and toddlers), my favourite homeschool books for both kids and parents, and more!

Funny, serious, and definitely quirky, this episode will at the very least provide some entertainment 😉

  1. Fascinating article! I must say that it answers many questions about homeschooling. And the main question for me is homeschooling legit according to the law and other governmental issues. Also, I often use different resources, such as the Eduzaurus essay platform, to have an example of good work. I think that has a plenty of good content. I think that I should understand the topic as well as the teacher at school.
