Episode 037: Solo – Why I Home Educate My Kids

This Post Contains Affiliate Links


From this Episode:

I am discussing why I homeschool and what philosophies have influenced my methods. Listed below are a few of the sites, resources, and books that have influenced me.

One thing I want to note that I didn’t mention is that any of these values can be applied whether or not you homeschool! Intentional education happens in the home, it’s true. BUT, you can do these things after school, weekends, at the dinner table, etc. The ideas I talk about are things that apply to family culture no matter what educational style your family follows.  The important thing is the intentionality of it, the parental involvement, and guidance that kids receive to lead them toward a great education!

The Tuttle Twins - a child's foundation of freedom

About the author, Jodi

I live in Richmond, Virginia with my husband, Michael, and our four young kids. We homeschool, and work remotely, so I guess we may take this on the road some day! I have a bachelor's degree from George Mason University in Health Promotion Studies, but I attended five different universities before finally finishing while I was expecting my third baby! I'm a returned missionary from the Hawaii Honolulu Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I'm sort of a jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none, but I do enjoy reading personal development and parenting books, finding new ways to enjoy exercising, and learning more about being an entrepreneur.
