There are very few homeschool parents out there who would say that getting their kids to enjoy writing is easy.
Today I am talking with Dr. Fred Lybrand who has been teaching writing for well over two decades (along with countless other pursuits). He is ALSO a homeschool dad of 5 grown kids and has unique and sensible approach to helping our kids with writing. He shares several basic principles in this podcast that will make you shake your head and say, “Why didn’t I think of that? It makes so much more sense now!”
If you are looking for a writing course, this may be a good fit for you. I invite you to listen in and find out!
