Feeding a large family, homeschooling a wide variety of ages, scheduling work time and more….
Every week on the podcast, I’m releasing a bonus Q+A episode full of your questions. I’ve seen other podcasters do this and I love listening in to the random questions that come in.
This week, we’re talking feeding a large family without feeling like you’re drowning, homeschooling all the ages, scheduling work time, and lots more!
Below you’ll find the audio, the list of questions and their timestamps, and any links or extra info you might want to know about my answers to your questions.
Thanks for tuning in!
Here’s the breakdown of this week’s Q+A. You’ll find the timestamp for each question as well as some points and links to look into.
1. [1:26] When homeschooling such a wide range, how do you manage time for everyone each day? Help!
- Combine where you can! Your older kids should be able to start to be more independent of you.
- I like to all be together at the table, but everyone is working at their own level. That leaves me to be able to work with my 1st grader one on one.
