The movie Cuties has caused quite the outrage among my circle of friends. I dug deeper into the intent of the movie and realized there is confusion and chaos even among the creators of the film. But it got me thinking and asking the question: What IS it really like living as a tween girl in this day and age and in our hyper-sexualized American culture? So I asked Ellianah what her fears are, her dreams, the pressures that she is facing today as she learns how to figure out this world. There is a lot she said that can be applied to your parenting and it's nice to be aware of what our tween girls are struggling with. I hope you leave this episode feeling empowered to help your daughters navigate life.
Ellianah and I give a thorough review of each element of the Memoria Press homeschool curriculum that we use.
Listen to today's episode and see what she thinks of our curriculum review.
As promised in the episode, here are the links to all of the curriculum that we use. (Yes, they are affiliate links.)
Thank you for listening!

In this episode, we talk about scheduling. There are many ways to organize and implement a schedule for your homeschool and we talk about the way we like to do it. Ellianah gives some insight on what it's like for a child to have a schedule, as well as advice for other homeschooled children as it relates to scheduling. We also talk about my new Homeschool Scheduling Toolkit, which is available on my blog. Go check it out!
Thank you for joining us today on our first episode! We are chatting today about our family, who we are and what we like to do.
