Episode 44: Janine Bailey- Character over Curriculum: A Homeschool Q&A


Janine Bailey has been homeschooling her 2 boys for the last 8 years. Many of us have found ourselves schooling our kids at home in the last few months and may be doing more of the same in the fall. I asked Janine for some tips and tricks of the trade. We discuss how to keep going when things get tough, the importance of flexibility, and how to plan your day to day.
