Zero to Homeschool
Homeschooling can give children an amazing education - and families an amazing life. But it can be REALLY overwhelming when trying to work out just how, exactly, you're meant to pull off this impressive homeschool ideal. You know it probably won't look much like school - but just what are you meant to do instead? Does this sound familiar? You’re overwhelmed with information - Suddenly, you’re in a whole new world where people talk about deschooling, autonomous learning, and someone called Charlotte Mason. They may as well be speaking Russian for all the sense it makes to you. You're frustrated by conflicting information - You ask for help online, but again, you’re swamped with dozens of opinions. They all contradict each other, so how on earth do you tell who’s right? You hesitate to buy resources - There’s so much available, how on earth can you choose? Plus, you don’t have unlimited funds, and some of that stuff is expensive-you need to know you’ll get your money’s worth You wonder how you’ll all get along - All of us, together, all the time? And I have to TEACH them? Everyone has an opinion - your mum, the media, the mailman - they all seem to be convinced you’ll ruin your children/family/society. You’re pretty sure homeschooling is the best option, but all that criticism is hard to deal with……… You try to copy school, but it's a disaster - you're bored, your children rebel, and you think that you'll never be able to manage to educate your children. And to top it all off it’s pretty scary knowing that it all rests with you - there’s no teacher or school to shift the blame to if it all falls apart. Does any/all of that sound too familiar? You don’t have to raise your hand, we’re homeschoolers here - we’re allowed to speak up. Is it any wonder that you’re thinking that homeschooling is a lot more complicated than it should be, and wondering ‘Where on earth do I START?’ So, what is Zero to Homeschool? Zero to Homeschool is a comprehensive online program designed to get you homeschooling successfully. Each week we tackle a different area of your homeschool + life. Each week there's readings, videos and other resources that help you learn about an area, work out what you REALLY want to do about it Learning what you need to do can be easier than actually doing it. But Zero to Homeschool makes it easy to do it! Each week contains tasks and challenges where you'll implement what you've learned. You'll slowly but surely make meaningful changes that improve your homeschool immediately, and that over time will lead you to the homeschooling outcomes you want (and Zero to Homeschool will even show you how to define those outcomes!). Plus, there's a private Facebook community where we'll all work at keeping each other accountable, brainstorming solutions to problems, and celebrating successes. I'm active at least once a day, five days a week, to help you out and cheer you on. Finally, you'll ALWAYS have access to the course and the group. You can revisit either any time you feel you need to make improvements, change your approach, or simply ask a friendly and knowledgeable group of people for some quick tips.
