Episode Description

Your child’s school has canceled in-person classes due to the pandemic, and you are worried about an academic freefall and/or a homeschool free-for-all where you end up playing the homework police all day, every day — while also working from home?

Listen and learn from educator and author Ann Dolin, M.Ed., about how to:

  • Create simple routines throughout the day to help kids stay focused academically
  • Foster independence in their work, so you don’t have to take on the role of ‘homeschool police’
  • Set up a schedule for the right time of day and length of time for learning
  • Create a balance of learning and free time to increase motivation based on your child’s age
  • Encourage the right use of digital devices (just enough and not too much)
  • Use the best tools and resources, even if you have no background in teaching
