The homeschooling parents I talk with are most likely to get panicky when the middle and high school years aren’t far off. My discussion today will put your minds at ease.
But first, I would love to have you follow me on Instagram at Psychowith6. I have recently begun sharing inspirational content there–inspiration for your faith, getting organized, your parenting, and of course, homeschooling. I am also enjoying having real conversations with you there.Listen to the podcast
How to Help Your Child Transition to Middle or High School with Sherri Seligson
Today’s guest is Sherri Seligson. I was so excited to talk with her as I’m a fan. Sherri is a 21-year veteran homeschool mom of four children, a degreed marine biologist, researcher, wife, and Christian. Before being promoted to motherhood, Sherri worked as a marine biologist at Walt Disney World’s Living Seas, publishing shark behavior research. She has authored Apologia’s Exploring Creation with General Science, Marine Biology and Internships for High School Credit, instructional video courses for Apologia’s science curricula, and companion curricula for feature films including Dolphin Tale and War Horse. An international conference and retreat speaker, Sherri uses transparency, truth, and humor, to encourage moms on their homeschool journey and to teach families and students the importance and excitement of studying God’s creation.
Sherri and I discussed:
- what’s different about the middle and high school years
- how we can help our students adjust and grow into these new seasons
- how to get past the anxiety that often accompanies these changes
