    4. When You Have No Energy To Do Any Of It

    Today’s question will likely feel very familiar to pretty much any parent: “What if you just don’t have the energy to do all the stuff? The magic-making, the planning, the execution of all the tasks? I know what needs to get done, but I just can’t get myself to do it all. Help.”

My Favorite Podcast!

This is by far the most helpful podcast for my homeschooling journey. It also has a lot just for parenting in general. Julie has a special skill of putting me at ease while also encouraging me to do better, giving me ideas, but not overwhelming me. And that's saying a lot, coming from me! She also is a deep thinker, clearly with honesty and integrity, as epecially displayed in the most recent episode "What are the risks of homeschooling?" I related very much to that one. Thank you so much Julie!

I <3 Julie

I have listened to every single episode of Julie Bogart's podcast, and as far as advice for parenting, adulting, and homeschooling, she knocks it out of the park every time. My children are too young for formal schooling right now, but I've been planning on homeschooling them since before they were born, and all of Julie's advice, shared experience, and recommended resources have given me so much confidence and understanding of what is to come.

Insightful

I just finished listening to Julie’s “Love + Collaboration in Learning” episode and it was so insightful. As a homeschool mom with nine years experience I find I still have so much to learn. Some days it feels it will take a lifetime to “de-school” myself from my own public school experience. Episodes like this one give me hope that I can continue to make positive changes in the way I homeschool. Thank you, Julie, for sharing your insights. :)
