We all go into parenting with some amount of baggage and we hope our kids will have less of it than we did, but what does that even look like?  We know what NOT to do, but what DO we do?  We love our kids, but how to we nurture and raise them to be emotionally healthy adults?  And if we are homeschooling, how do we address obstacles that inevitably show up along the way?

I went into motherhood and homeschooling with a very basic understanding of child development and even that little bit of information has proven to be very helpful over my 27 years as a mom.  I’ve learned even more as we have homeschooled our children for the last 23 years.

Today, Dan Marcone, M.A., LMHC, is sharing some very, very important information about the development stages of kids and how it relates to their learning.  You will want to grab a pen and paper and take notes because this podcast is chock FULL of great information!
