Playlist: Innovative Ideas from Homeschoolers for Learning During a Pandemic

The 2020 pandemic has required us to rethink everything including the risk of sending children back to school. Many parents feel guilty about keeping their kids home. They also have numerous concerns about if there will be negative consequences for doing so.

That's why I'm bringing you a series of conversations among veteran homeschoolers to address common concerns. They will provide unique insights about what it means for students to learn, socialize, and prepare for success in the world without the full support of school. 

These parents are full of innovative ideas and their perspectives are varied. One belief they share is that schools are there to best serve families, but ultimately it is up to the family to determine what works best. At times this may mean no school, some school, or full-time school.

The goal of this series is to help parents make informed decisions about their children and returning to school, or not, during a pandemic. As you'll learn from these parents, whatever you decide, you and your family can always change your mind and move to what works best for your family.

Each of these lively conversations are under an hour.

Topics we discuss include:

  • Can working parents homeschool?

  • What if my child falls behind?

  • What about socialization and socializing?

  • What if my kids want to play video games all day?

  • Pulling the plug on video games

  • The kids will be alright
