The sisters get questions about screens all the time! So in this episode, they're phoning a friend - The amazing Mary Wilson from NotBefore7!
Mary has a great strategy in her home, and she has found peace with this topic, so you're going to love hearing what she has to say.
Cait and Kara chat with Mary about all the most common screen questions they receive: How much is too much? How do you find balance between "learning" screen time and "play" screen time? Is technology a monster? Or manageable?
And finally, is homeschooling moving more toward technology? If so, how can we embrace that?
There is so much wisdom from Mary in this episode! It's like a deep breath for worried parents!
Is it normal for your homeschooler to have strengths and weaknesses in certain subjects? How much should you worry about keeping your child at grade level? Is there a way to know what your child *should* be learning?
This week, the homeschool sisters dive into these questions and offer up some thoughts about the "standards," plus how to keep from worrying all the time.
They chat about kid quirks, dealing with state requirements, grandma doubts and dad concerns. And mostly, they remind you that all kids naturally develop on their own timelines, so don't fret - you've got this!
