Some days Homeschooling can be a struggle. Maybe no-one got enough sleep, or your child was stuck on a relatively hard math problem, or maybe everyone has a case of cabin fever. Whatever it is, some days are harder than others.
What about when we add a little sibling to the mix?
Throw in a toddler, or a baby and that adds a whole other level to the daily homeschool. Successful homeschooling with little ones underfoot is not impossible. Expectations need to be changed, Schedules may have to be re-vamped, and some curriculum may need to stay unopened.
In this epsiode, Alisha and Amanda talk about their own experiences with homeschooling with little children. They share their own tips that helped them be successful in an otherwise chaotic time.
