Episode 14 – How To Begin Homeschooling

Many parents are concerned about the quality, safety, politics and other issues of schools nowadays, so homeschooling might be a great option for your family.  But where to start?  In this episode I try to answer that question.

Joining me is prepper author Katy Owen, who has written a couple of great prepping books, one of which has a chapter on homeschooling.  The link for the box set of her books, collectively entitled Prepping On A Budget, can be found here.
