There are definite barriers to home education, (needing to work outside the home to pay the bills, especially for single parent families, co-parenting with someone who refuses to support home education etc) but a lack of qualifications is not one of them.
This is episode 20 and this week I’m talking to Ashleigh from @wild.wood.childhood. We talk about home educating alongside a sibling in school, home edding foundation and year 1 on a very small budget, and the fear of missing out, and how it can mess with your confidence and cost you money.
This is episode 19 and this week I’m talking to Sherilyn from @HomeEdHereAndNow. We talk about shifting into a mindset where you don’t feel the need to prove yourself all the time. Sherilyn talks about running a business alongside home education, and we talk hands on maths and building community.
…I had a spare notebook lying around, so I put it in the kitchen and that evening, I told everyone that this book was a Family Book and for everyone to use as they wanted to. There was no pressure to use it, no nagging, no spelling/grammar police, no rules!
