LWOTW 025: When One Kid Needs More Attention
If you're homeschooling more than one child, and especially if you're homeschooling a crew, changes are good that there will be times when one child - because of learning or behavior struggles, metal or physical health challenges or other reasons - needs a lot more of your attention than the other kids. My dear friend Kendra Fletcher joined me to talk about this challenge - both how to navigate it and how to think about it. If you've ever struggled with balancing attention to multiple children, I think you'll find this episode encouraging!

LWOTW 024: Teaching to Their Strengths
Before she became a homeschool mom (unexpectedly) Shawna Wingert was a corporate consultant teaching big-league companies how to maximize employee productivity and boost morale by focusing on making the best use of employee strengths rather than trying to correct weaknesses. When Shawna began homeschooling, she wondered if these same science-based, researched-backed approaches could work with her children in her home as well. And now, with two nearly-grown sons of her own and loads of experience coaching other moms, she can confidently say, that yes, it does! Listen in as Shawna describes her experience and encourages us to teach to our children's strengths!
