Meeting Emotional Needs (and beyond) {Episode 68} | The Homeschool Sisters Podcast

Meeting emotional needs (and beyond) {Episode 68}

In this episode, Cait + Kara address a common question they get from parents – how to meet their children’s emotional needs, and how to deal with issues like anxiety and more while homeschooling.

With plenty of candor, the sisters are their own experiences with this issue and how they’ve navigated rough patches (and beyond) with their own children.

Q & A: New Rhythms and Spring (Fever) {Episode 66} | The Homeschool Sisters Podcast


History Unboxed is an educational, hands-on monthly history subscription service. History Unboxed features three timelines to explore: Ancient History, the Middle Ages, and American History.

History Unboxed currently has a “Build Your Own” subscription option open for Summer – customers can pick the boxes they want, in the order they want, for the number of months they want – a great way to try out HU and pick up some of our boxes that are perfect for outdoor time. (Here’s a link to boxes that are PERFECT for summer learning!)

Use the promo code SISTERS to get $10 off any history box (limit one per customer). 

For the Ancient and Middle Ages timelines, the box you receive will depend on the month, and all subscribers will receive the same box that month—great for collaborating with friends who are also subscribers! For the American History timeline, boxes arrive according to a set sequence, so as to build the story of our nation chronologically.

Subscribers will receive a new box exploring a different place in time, according to the era you selected. Each box contains:

  • An age-specific coloring sheet
  • 1-2 high-quality crafts
  • A sticker for your timeline
  • 2-3 items of additional enrichment material
