Homeschool Unrefined

Jul 29, 2019

A lot of homeschooling and parenting is about helping our kids develop skills for their toolboxes. In this episode, we’re talking about one of our favorite tools: self-evaluation. We get into why this skill is so important and how we build self-evaluation into our homeschool—from the planning stages to our daily routines to (gasp!) homeschooling without grades and report cards. Empowering our kids to self-evaluate bolsters their self-awareness and self-confidence, and it helps us exercise trust in them and ourselves—it’s the ultimate win-win! This episode is a must-listen as you plan your school year. (You might even want to jot down some of the “What We Don’t Do” ideas we share.)
