Homeschool Unrefined

Oct 18, 2021

Not sure which is more daunting: figuring out our kids' educational options, or getting on the same page with our partner about those options! This is a topic that has come up A LOT in our conversations with other parents, so we're processing our own stories about making school / homeschool decisions with our partners. We also share 3 tips to help you have these conversations with your partner. 


Join us on Patreon this week where we'll be talking with our partners!


This episode is sponsored by NaliniKIDS. Help your kids reflect on the words in their lives with WORD Workouts, a free lesson library for kids 4-18 from NaliniKIDS.
