61  Gender Confusion, Dual Enrollment, Valuing Children

  • Homeschool News: The Great Pandemic Baby Bump; Becoming a father shrinks your cerebrum
  • Homeschool Conversations: We listen to a conversation that Matthew had with Todd Wilson, founder of Familyman Ministries. They talk about what to do if your child is gender confused. 
  • Homeschool Helps with Amanda: Amanda talks about dual enrollment for high school students.

       

      One of the segments of The Homeschool Show is called Homeschool Reality Moment. This segment will show video clips of parents sharing stories and experiences from their homes that are funny, moving, and inspiring. If you’d like to submit a video, please record your video horizontally (not the normal way you hold your phone). We want videos about 1 to 3 minutes long. It could be just a video of you telling a story of something that happened or a conversation you had. It could be a project idea or homeschool hack that you show through the video. Remember to keep it real. Don’t forget that this will also be shared as a podcast, so be sure you are giving narration as you show something. You can see the kinds of videos we’ve shown so far on this YouTube playlist. Send your videos to thehomeschoolshow@nche.com or upload them by clicking on the button below.
