Prana Boosting™ With Tina-Episode #67-How We Became A Homeschooling Family-The Prana Boost Show™ Podcast


Hi Prana Boosters!

I am Tina Louise Balodi, author of the children’s book Ms Alignment The Emotion Fairy™.

Have you ever thought about homeschooling your child? I know I didn’t.

Yet, I have always homeschooled our girls and they are actually turning 14 & 16 and have never attended “traditional” school. Join me today as I share our journey to Homeschooling/Unschooling and discuss many of the options, challenges and experiences we are facing today with Covid-19 and how it’s affecting our education system and most importantly our children.Have you ever thought about homeschooling your child? Do you agree that there is a problem with our education system? In this podcast episode I share why we chose to homeschool, the benefits of homeschooling/unschooling, some challenges you may face and how successful it has been for us for the past 10 years. For the first time in history, the ENTIRE WORLD BECAME HOMESCHOOLERS for an unknown period of time…we are all unsure of how this will look and feel and what the next steps will be for the world’s educational system. Even if you are just going to be “temporarily” homeschooling, it’s super important to understand what our kids need most at this time. Our kids NEED extra special loving care and patience. They need connection, reassurance and unconditional love. They need us to be there for them to support their mental health… their emotional well-being has to be a priority in addition to their physical well-being. They need to feel safe in these times of great uncertainty. They also need time to adapt to these new ways. They will learn their school work and skills…but right now, they need to learn about how loved and respected they are and how we will be there for them in even the hardest of times. How we show up now will shape all they learn and do in the future. This can be a wonderful time of connection if we surrender to what’s happening around us and love each other through it.

Our life is super unique and amazing. We are very connected and have great relationships with each other and our 2 teenage girls. Homeschooling is legal in all 50 states, but the laws for homeschooling vary greatly from state to state. In some states, you need to file paperwork, teach specific subjects and some states require mandatory state testing each year. You must learn about the specific laws for each state. If you decided you were interested in learning more, I am so happy to talk to you. Leave me a comment below this video, DM me on Instagram @pranaboost there is so much more to even share. AND YOU DON’t HAVE TO FIGURE IT OUT ALONE LIKE WE DID… I AM HERE TO HELP! I am so excited to hear what inspired action, miracles and dreams you will experience as you learn more about homeschooling and/or unschooling your child/children.
