Homeschool Unrefined

Nov 1, 2021

“How do I get my kid to ____?” "Why won't my child _____?" Have you ever found yourself asking those questions? (We’ve all been there!) We’re devoting a whole episode to this very common homeschool and parenting dilemma. Whether you're getting reluctance about a school subject, a household chore, or even a fun extracurricular activity, we’ll break down why your child might be reluctant and what to do about it. And some of our suggestions might surprise you!


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.
