Carole Joy Seid knows homeschool moms — sometimes better than they know themselves. She homeschooled her only child and then went on to become a homeschool speaker and consultant.
On this episode of the podcast, she tells us a little about what it was like to be a homeschool pioneer when she was first starting out. She also shares some insight with us on the topic of helping our children work on non-academic areas, like practical life skills and character building, while they’re at home with us.
Finally, she encourages us all to have a little fun with our kids. There is a whole lot of wisdom packed into this little conversation, so sit back and enjoy.
