Homeschool Unrefined

Feb 22, 2021

We’re back with brand new episodes! This week, we’re sharing updates on how homeschool is going and what it looks like for each of us in this season of life. Maren shares her “Aha Moment” about including our kids in solving household problems and sharing responsibilities. Plus, you’re getting a preview of what’s coming up this podcast season. As always, you’ll get our LTWs at the end, and we’ve added a new listener question segment! Join us on Patreon to hear us answer this week’s questions.

Aha Moment Quote

"When kids are involved in what’s going on, they often want to help make things better." -Maren

Listener Question

Sierra and Jen asked us great questions about how negotiation, collaboration, and decision-making works in our families and in child-centered homeschool. Join us on Patreon to hear our conversation answering the question: “How much say do your kids have in homeschool?”


Coming up this season

This season, we’re going back to the basics: math, chores, meals, curriculum and more! We’re also piloting a couple episodes of Unrefined Education, where we’ll share some of our big thoughts and feelings about education as a whole.


$5 Squad on Patreon

We know that a lot of subscriptions and memberships can be out of reach financially for homeschool families, and it’s often us parents that give up the things we want in order to afford what our families need.


But we really want our Squad to be affordable for you because every homeschool parent should be able to get connected to the support they need. You get ALL our rewards and join our comunity for just $5/month. And we now offer a DISCOUNTED annual rate with TWO MONTHS FREE. $50/year is a small investment to make in YOURSELF—and you DESERVE it.

Loving This Week (LTW)

Maren: Being Serena & Framing Britney Spears

Angela: Yoga with Kassandra


Patrons get a monthly "LTW Extra" episode when you join our $5 Squad. An hour-long chat about the shows, products, podcasts, books, and more that we're loving!
