9 Tips for Homeschooling Your Kids During the Coronavirus Crisis I Ep. 63

9 Tips for Homeschooling Your Kids During the Coronavirus Crisis

We’re facing a unique circumstance this year as the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis has led to more people working from home and the shut down of school districts in the middle of the school year. For most parents, this means they’re attempting to get their kids to do their schoolwork at home. 

This can be deeply challenging, so we will step away a bit from the general focus of our podcast and tackle a topic that I have some extensive background in.

In today’s episode, I’m going to give you some tips for homeschooling your kids to keep them productive as much as possible. My wife and I have been homeschooling our kids since 2009. While we’re not perfect, we have some experience to share that you might find helpful. 

If you’re looking for that 1% of inspiration to help you during this trying time, then this episode is right for you.
