In this episode, I am thrilled to shine a very special author spotlight on Afsaneh Moradian, Founder of MLC Homeschool Coaching and the Author of the beloved picture book series "Jamie is Jamie."

Key Takeaways● The "Jamie is Jamie" series is about celebrating children as individuals and allowing them to be free to be themselves.● Homeschooling should be the opposite of traditional schooling, which doesn't always meet the needs of every child.● Homeschooling should be personalized and respect the needs of each child.● Each families' homeschooling style is unique, and what works best for one may not work for another.● Combining subjects into activities is a fun way to teach children, and it can be more effective than teaching subjects in isolation.● Homeschooling parents need to be adaptable and flexible, especially with teenagers.● An integrated approach to teaching, where different subjects are combined, is possible in a school environment through interdisciplinary project-based learning.● Standardized testing has made public education skill-based, focusing on drilling kids to get them ready for the test, rather than fostering creativity and real interaction with the topics.● It's important for adults to not put any limits or judgments on how kids want to play as long as it's safe and provide a safe space for kids to discover who they are.
