Please join us for an important discussion about equipping our kids to protect their bodies. +HomeschoolingIRL *Episode 70: Let's Talk About Sexual Abuse* #sexualassault   #sexualabuse   #parenting   #homeschooling  
1 in 5 chidren will be sexually abused by the time they reach 18. It's a topic we sorely need to talk about, out loud, in the greater homeschooling community and in our own homes. Join us and authors +Justin Holcomb and Lindsey Holcomb for a frank and honest discussion about sexual abuse and equipping kids to protect their bodies.

Join +HomeschoolingIRL and author +Angie Tolpin  as we explore reasons women have a difficult time connecting or feel as if there is an undercurrent of comparison and competition running through our relationships. We'll talk about how Jesus changes our communication and frees us to stand shoulder to shoulder with each other as we seek to bring glory to God.

Moms don't generally want to lose control of their mouths, but sometimes the chaos of parenting and homeschooling can cause a mom to blow her top. And then what?

Join us on +HomeschoolingIRL as we get into the nitty gritty and share our own struggles with yelling, shaming a child, and other forms of parental frustration. What then? How can we learn to control our tongues and speak life to our kids?

Part Two in the very important +HomeschoolingIRL series, Why the Rise in African American Homeschooling?"
In this second installment of our two-part series, Why the Rise in African American Homeschooling?, we welcome Belinda Bullard into the studio to talk about her experiences growing up black in America, watching her kids as they progressed through the public school system, and then ultimately bringing them home to homeschool them.

Belinda has written an inclusive curriculum that celebrates the African American heritage and aims to strengthen and empower the African American student and their family. 

As with our part one interview with Dr. Ama Mazama, we want to encourage you to listen even if you're not an African American parent. We found our eyes opened to real issues of racism and culture, and hope that we and our listeners can begin to be a part of the solution to the reality of racism and inequality everywhere.

Sibling relationships can often make a home life feel like, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." How do you handle kids who constantly bicker, are competing for your time, and who can't stand to share the backseat of the family car?

Fletch and Kendra are talking sibling relationships and giving some practical advice for handling those tricky, sticky moments when brothers and sisters want to be anything but best friends.

So my heart is walking around in a cap and gown this weekend. I'm just over here in the corner trying not to sob loudly enough to alert the neighbors.

We're talking about special needs and homeschooling over on +HomeschoolingIRL this week. What's the biggest challenge you face?
Are you homeschooling a child with special needs? Fletch and Kendra are, too, and on this episode of HomeschoolingIRL, they'll be discussing the unique challenges and joys that homeschooling a child with special needs adds to the homeschool setting.

+Wendy Hilton of +Hip Homeschool Moms  joins us for a touching interview that we hope will encourage parents of kids with special needs and give insight into the life of a family with exceptional learners.

So many great resources here!
It's been a rough year here in the Roberts household.  We did just about every major life circumstance all in one year!  I've had to redo, rework, and regroup on all things homeschooling and homemaking.  I am so thankful for resources like this one to help me get back in gear!

Good stuff from +Tonia L!
The middle grades are a good time to start looking at primary sources.

 Use this free printable to teach them how to evaluate primary historical documents.
