You are going to love listening to Vanessa Curtis, who has so much wisdom to share with us about mothering lots of little people, individualising for learning styles and why we need to scrub the word “should” from our vocab.
Is it possible to homeschool without the roots of home and community? Brooke Pipes is a military wife who has navigated the challenges of homeschooling through decades of regular moving and stretches of single parenting. She’s also familiar with the challenges of mothering children across a broad age range, with a large gap in her children’s ages. We talk to Brooke about starting again, keeping a positive attitude, and how her homeschool graduates were able to achieve recognition for their work for university entrance.
