Welcome to the Built by Kids podcast! Today we explore the world of homeschooling from a parent’s perspective, with Amber Trueblood - parenting expert, author, and host of the Stretch Marks podcast.
As people who weren’t homeschooled ourselves but who know plenty of extraordinary kids who have been, we’ve always been curious about how this alternative approach works, how it fits into working parents’ schedules, and most importantly, the shift in mindset that’s needed to make homeschooling a viable option -
Knowing that, against the backdrop of a worldwide pandemic, more and more families are evaluating the option, we hope our conversation sheds light on this growing movement and helps guide you to create the best path for your unique family.
You can find the show notes and links to all the resources we discuss at builtbykids.com/homeschool and stick around after our conversation with Amber as Timothy and I synthesize the discussion and evaluate if homeschool is a viable option for our family.
