    Difference between introvert and extravert homeschoolers - YCH061

    Difference between introvert and extravert homeschoolers - YCH061

    Learning styles are certainly important to understand, but our personalities influence our homeschool as well. In today's episode, we discuss not only how this "shows up" at home and in school, but the "care and feeding" of the homeschool mom! Pop quia: Tracey and I are not both extroverts! Can you guess which is which?

    On Language and Learning in Your Homeschool - YCH060

    On Language and Learning in Your Homeschool - YCH060

    We kept this interview to as close to 30 minutes as I could, but it was hard! Let me introduce you to Dwane Thomas, creator of Visual Latin and Word Up! Much more than "just" a language teacher, he continues to embody the concept of a lifestyle of learning. During our altogether-too-brief time, he talks about the "risks" of homeschooling, what he really thinks about Latin, interesting facts about the headwaters of the Mississippi River, and the roots of the word "infantry." (And yeah, it's really all connected!) Finally, he shares some hard-earned words of advice to other homeschool dads on the journey. Truly an episode you'll want to share!

    How and Why to Get Your Kids to "Own" Their Learning - YCH058

    How and Why to Get Your Kids to "Own" Their Learning - YCH058

    Owning anything - emotions, your responsibilities, your actions - is key to growing into becoming a responsible adult. Owning your own education is key to developing a lifestyle of learning. Starting them on this track starts early, but has far-reaching effects. Once your children realize that they don't need to be spoonfed, that they're "masters of their own fate", so to speak, there won't be any challenge they can't meet!

    The Effects of Being an ACoA Homeschooling Parent - YCH057

    The Effects of Being an ACoA Homeschooling Parent - YCH057

    Pat's keepin' it real - and gets really personal - as Tracey interviews about her past and how it affected their homeschool. While suitable for "little ears" if you, as a homeschooling parent, realize you are the adult child of an alcoholic, you may want to listen to this with earbuds. But we DO hope this episode leaves you encouraged... Remember: God's not through with ANY of us yet, friend!
