We've been answering listener questions all season over on Patreon, and we wanted to share one of those exclusive episodes with you! Ashley asked the questions many of us are wrestling with right now: “I want to feel ok with doing less and just letting learning happen naturally, but I feel like public school stole the spark of love for learning from my 8-year old who went to K and 1st. How do I bring the spark back?” She also asked about unschooling (can I really do it?), finding a rhythm (HOW?!), cooking (does an air fryer count?), and self-care (thanks to Rocket Royale and Roblox): “Is this just a season though? It’s been a year.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This is an episode that is normally exclusive to our Patreon community. Patrons get all our Q&A episodes this season, plus 2 monthly episodes year round. Get more content and join our fantastic community of amazing homeschool parents at patreon.com/homeschoolunrefined

$5 Squad on Patreon

We know that a lot of subscriptions and memberships can be out of reach financially for homeschool families, and it’s often us parents that give up the things we want in order to afford what our families need.

But we really want our Squad to be affordable for you because every homeschool parent should be able to get connected to the support they need. You get ALL our rewards and join our community for just $5/month. And we now offer a DISCOUNTED annual rate with TWO MONTHS FREE. $50/year is a small investment to make in YOURSELF—and you DESERVE it.

Loving This Week (LTW)

No LTWs this week, but patrons get a monthly "LTW Extra" episode when you join our $5 Squad. An hour-long chat about the shows, products, podcasts, books, and more that we're loving!
