S5E10: Prepping Your Teen for Adulthood | with Myah St. John

Our guest Myah St. John homeschools three children (plus a newborn), and her oldest child, 14, is on the verge of high school. Myah’s always embraced a one-room schoolhouse model for her family, but she finds herself floundering trying to balance high school with elementary school... and as her teenage daughter starts to become a young woman.   Why do our children become these people we don’t understand? How do they transform so quickly from a young kid happy to be part of the team to a young adult with their own opinions, wants, and needs – which they are more than happy to share with us, loudly?   We don’t always think about this transition in our children’s lives, but eventually, your pleasant young children will become teens, and they’ll start trying to figure out how they can be individuals in a homeschool household. This can be a big challenge, for both your and your child, but Julie is here to offer a helping hand.   You can download show notes for the podcast here: http://blog.bravewriter.com/category/podcasts/   Resources: Follow the St. John Family on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/stjohnfamilyfarm/ Want help getting started with Brave Writer?
