As a homeschool mom, there are lots of times when you need a little bit of encouragement and inspiration to get you through the day. Homeschool podcasts are the perfect way to get that pick-me-up. 

I know that it's hard to take time for you when you're a busy homeschool mom. It seems someone always needs something from you. You don't have a spare minute to read an encouraging book, watch videos or catch-up with our favorite homeschool bloggers.

How to Use Educational Podcasts for Homeschooling

But, podcasts are much easier to fit into your busyness. You can listen while the kids have a play break. Or while you clean up the kitchen. Or during your afternoon “Mommy Taxi” run. Or even while you shower (if you've had that luxury for the day).  Try out these podcasts and find the best.

The Homeschool Sanity Show

Who’s the host?

Licensed psychologist and homeschool mom of six, Dr. Melanie Wilson runs this one-woman show. The blogger behind Psychowith6.com, Melanie was a self-described “reluctant homeschooler” when she felt the calling from God to homeschool her three children at the time. She gave up her career to do so and admits that she struggled with various aspects of homeschooling – specifically getting organized. Eventually (with the initial help of FLYLady), she was able to get organized and create what she calls a saner homeschool life.

What’s it about?

The Homeschool Sanity Show is all about helping homeschool parents with all of those worries we have. Melanie’s goal with each podcast episode is that you walk away with the strength to homeschool another day.
