Episode 36: Suddenly Homeschooling High School – Tips for Working with Your Teen

Has Covid-19 caused you to rethink your educational plan and bring your kid home for school? Has your public school system gone to online schooling? 

Are you wondering what this “homeschooling” thing will look like for high school? Are you overwhelmed at the thought of working with your teen all day every day?

If any of the above apply to you (or perhaps more than one or all of them, LOL), then this podcast episode will help. In it I’ll give tips to anyone who is faced with their teen being home for school for the first time, tips that will help things to run smoother and create less friction.

We can all agree that doing high school at home can seem quite intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be that hard when you utilize this common sense, practical advice from a mom who has been there through five kids.
