The Charlotte Mason Show | A Homeschool Podcast

Jul 18, 2022

Having toddlers in your home is a beautiful season, and it can also be challenging!  Especially if you are trying to homeschool older children while meeting the many needs of your little ones.  This is a topic that Lyndsey of Treehouse Schoolhouse shares openly about on her platforms, and she is joining Julie in this episode to discuss the reality of homeschooling with toddlers underfoot.  Not only do Lyndsey and Julie talk about the difficult parts and offer strategies for making the most of this season, they also share encouragement about the gifts it holds.  And if you are a homeschooling parent who also works from home, stay tuned until the end of the episode where both share what it’s like to run businesses from home while being fully present in their children’s education.  This conversation is packed full of practical strategies, encouragement, and laughter!
