Brave Learner Home: November 2022

Brave Learner Home

Sometimes when homeschooling, I thought I wasn’t doing enough.

Somewhere along the way, I had acquired the belief: rigor is the key to learning.

Do you think like this? A rigorous education means being prepared for the next step in life, whether it’s middle school, high school, or college?

Yet at the same time, I also wanted to keep joy alive. 

I’ve got good news for you: 

It’s possible to have a rich, requirement-meeting, joy-filled homeschool!

Rigor? Not necessary.

Sign up in time to be at my next Brave Learner Home webinar:

  • The Myth of Rigor and Requirements in Homeschool
  • Thursday, November 10 at 7:00 pm (Eastern)

We’ll dig deep and give you practical steps you can implement right away!

Brave Learner Home: October 2022

Help! My Plan isn’t Working!

There’s a reason home educators call October: Curriculum’s not working month!

That’s because all those beautiful plans that live in your imagination have been put to the test and real life doesn’t always match our fantasies!

These are common questions I hear from parents:

  • What can be done with a program that cost a lot of money, but my kids hate it?
  • When is it time to throw in the towel on a curriculum and try something new?
  • What criteria should I use when switching to a different plan or program?
  • How do I know if a program IS working or not?
  • How important is a child’s happiness in plan development?

Good news! I have ideas to try and suggestions for how to rescue a homeschool on the wrong track.

I’ve told you lots about Brave Learner Home and the power of our membership community.

But I realized, maybe you’d learn more by attending one of our webinars!

Brave Learner Home: September 2022

Brave Learner Home

Julie’s kids: Caitrin, Jacob, Liam, Johannah, Noah

How much joy is happening in your homeschool?

Stop. Scan your environment.

  • Do you see joy around you?
  • Are your children engaged and deeply involved?

Inside each of us is a natural desire to learn. Yet sometimes that drive gets snuffed out through systematized education.

Good news!

That love of learning can be rekindled.

We know through research that joy and learning are deeply connected. Join us in Brave Learner Home for our September Master Class and webinar, we’ll help you bring joy and skill development together.

Joy IS the best teacher. Together, let’s discover more joy in your homeschool.

  • September Webinar: Joy is the Best Teacher
  • RESCHEDULED: Wednesday, September 21 at 4:00 pm (Eastern)

Brave Learner Home: June 2022

Brave Learner Home

As a homeschool parent, do you ever feel the heavy weight of:

  • showing progress,
  • measuring,
  • benchmarking,
  • and comparing your children to a standard? 

Whether you’re required to formally measure your child’s progress or not (it depends on where you live), the mindset is so dominant in our society, it can feel impossible to shake.

In Brave Learner Home, we’ll show you ways to more holistically “measure” your child’s progress—from the inside out!

We’ve got the perfect Master Class coming up in June to help you do just that! We’ll explore:

  • whether school standards are good benchmarks for homeschooled kids
  • how you can know if your kids really are making progress! 

Issy Buston of Stark Raving Dad joins us for a webinar in Brave Learner Home to talk about a different view of progress.

  • Measuring Your Child’s Progress from the Inside Out with Issy Buston
  • Thursday, June 9 at 7:00 pm (Eastern)
