Colleen Kessler spends her days herding rabid cats. Not really — she just homeschools her four kids at the family home in Ohio.
A former classroom teacher and gifted intervention specialist, she now homeschools her own twice-exceptional son and provides parenting, gifted, and science resources on her blog. Today she shares a few of those parenting tips with us.
Her reminders are very welcome as we get back into routines and head into the tough homeschool burnout season.
