Episode 6 – Why Homeschooling Shouldn’t Look Like Public School and What it Should Like: From A Principal’s Perspective with Julie Lause

May 19, 2020

If homeschooling is a sudden, unexpected journey for you, you may have tried replicating traditional school at home. But the real success lies in teaching independent learning to your kids instead. How?

In today’s episode, I get to chat with Julie Lause of the Bossy House. In this fun interview, we talk about why you can’t replicate traditional school at your house, and how being a homeschooling mom is nothing like being a traditional teacher.

Julie also shares tips on how you can do a simple Montessori style set up in your home so that your kids can learn independently while you work.

If you’re anxious that your kid is not learning enough at home, you’ve got to hear this episode!
