Jennifer always wanted to be a mother. As a little girl playing house in her room, she pretended to keep her kids at home for school. She had no idea there was such a thing as homeschooling until almost two decades later.
In her twenties, and on her second date with her now husband, she said, “When I have kids, I’m going to stay home with them.” After they married and started a family, she longed for their children to have a better school experience than she had.
Afraid she couldn’t do it, but refusing to give into the doubt, she began to homeschool her oldest child when he was five. Jennifer wanted school to be fun, but also to make sure the kids learned. This was the beginning of the plan to be well-adjusted in her homeschool.
Staying away from a heavy load of textbook work, the kids learned math and language skills combined with reading good books, working through extended projects, hands on activities, and field trips.
Seventeen years later, she enjoys the relationship she has with her adult sons and her teenage daughter. Now she’s on a mission to help moms like you homeschool successfully while maintaining peace in the home.
