When I tell people I was a homeschooled child, most people are full of questions. The regular world is shocked, because it isn’t something they ever expected. They seem to think that if you were homeschooled, they will be able to pick you out of a crowd. You’ll be weird, socially awkward, different. The homeschool mamas who hear me say that are brimming with questions, searching for hope. What was it like for me? Do I have any regrets? What were the main benefits? We all want to know the same thing… will our kids be okay or will they be missing out on something? In today’s episode I share a bit of my story, what it was like being homeschooled, my few experiences in both the public and private school system and some of the biggest ways it impacted my life. I even touch on the big “socialization” elephant in the room!

Two times a week is a lot and I want to make sure the content I am offering is speaking to you on an ongoing basis. Did you catch my sarcastic episode from last week: 10 steps to the PERFECT homeschool!?!?! Do you like more serious ones or are you looking for a place to have a coffee and laugh at some of the chaos that is our day? I want to tailor this podcast to you so let me know what you are looking for and I’ll do my best!
