Send me your questions!

Newsletter · Dec 1, 2021


It’s been a few weeks since I checked in here – partly because the podcast has been keeping me super busy, but also because I’m always conscious of respecting your time. If I have something to say that I think will add to your day, I’ll drop you a line. But if I don’t…I won’t barge in.

I’m working through Episode 12 of the Life Without School Podcast as we speak (if you’re not up to date on the latest episodes, you can catch them all – along with full transcripts and show notes – over here), and because it’s been a few weeks since we did the last one it’s time for another monthly question-and-answer chat.

I loved putting the first of these episodes together last month, because we all got the chance to hear from other home educating parents from around the world who are…it turns out…feeling all the same things we are. It was a lovely reminder that we’re far from alone in all this, and I want to keep providing space in an episode every month to bring us together in that way.

So, just like last month, I’ll take a few of your questions or things that are weighing on your mind, and give them the time they deserve to be fully explored.

If there’s something you’d like to hear me talk about, let me know by replying to this email (or on the Facebook or Instagram posts I’ve put up for this).

I’ll be recording in a few days, so drop me your thoughts as soon as you can!

Talk soon,

P.S. Thank you to everyone who has donated to my work recently! If you’d like to support what I’m putting out into the world, you can do that right here anytime.
