    #29 When Should You Expect Kids to Read?

    Most kids start school around age 5 or 6 years old. And the first big accomplishment that parents and teachers are tracking is when the student can read. The pressure is on big time from day one. Will their kindergartener or first grader succeed or fail in this area? How will parents react if their little one struggles? What about the child? How much pressure do they end up feeling? We have seven children. We’ve been there. We look forward to setting you free with wisdom, data, experience, and perspective.

Such BOLd truths!

I have been enjoying this podcast from Episode 1, and I keep sharing episodes with others! The “don’t stop at high school part 1,” is really resonating with me. Our oldest is in 8th grade, and every week our family is fielding questions related to “are we really going to homeschool through high school???” It’s so hard not to jump ship out of fear; it’s hard not to sound judgmental when I give reasonings for continuing to homeschool through high school; and it’s hard to watch teens go down the same-old-path of waywardness bc they are being led by their peers and society, not their families.

I am so appreciative of Davis and Rachael’s BOLDNESS to speak out and speak up. “Socialization” is scary. People who advocate for socialization honestly don’t understand what they are advocating for.

I look forward to all of the Let’s Talk Homeschool episodes. Please keep them coming!!

What a blessing to see you both at HOME in Rockport, ME. So often, after a convention I feel inspired but wish the “conversation” could go on. I’m so looking forward to listening to your new podcast!!
