The Learning Myth: Why I’ll Never Tell My Son He’s Smart

Our first week of homeschool was amazing!! ~Stacy M.

 “Our first week of homeschool was amazing!! There were a couple of days that was a little bit of a struggle but I have enjoyed every minute of teaching my daughter! I’ve wanted to homeschool her ever since the day I found out I was pregnant with her and started 4K with her has been exciting to her as well as myself! I’m so thankful to have found this group so that we can participate in field trips, clubs etc! I’m also thankful God has allowed me to teach my daughter and given me the most amazing desire to do so as well! ” Stacy M.
