Ep 12: Shifting Our Mindset About School At Home
It was so nice to sit down and record this episode with my good friend, Sally Kim. Sally is a teacher turned stay at home mom and blogger who runs Lovestalgia- a nostalgic life, lived with love. She creates content about homeschooling, Disney, and life with an only child in Orange County California. As an introvert, she never thought she would be sharing snippets of her life on the internet, but here she is.
With a new school year is quickly approaching, things are looking much different than usual. Some students will be returning to school, while many will be having school at home as they begin another round of distance learning. As a homeschooling mom, Sally will shed light on her experiences homeschooling her seven-year-old daughter. She’ll also tell us her story of transitioning from a teacher to a blogger.
In this episode we discuss:
- The basics of transitioning from public school to homeschooling
- Tips for being home with your child all day
- The idea of “deschooling”
- How we can support our kids without losing our patience
- Shifting our mindset as parents when it comes to school at home
- Advice for moms who want to start a blog
Whatever decision you are making as parent when it comes to school for this upcoming year, just know that we will all get through it together. You’ve got this!
