Simply Joyful Podcast — Connie Albers: Parenting Teens
Regardless of where you are at in your parenting journey, this is an amazing episode for you to listen in on (maybe take some notes). It has been such a joy to get to know Connie Albers over the years. She has been a great friend and a great mentor. What is beautiful about her new book, Parenting Beyond the Rules, is that she can be your mentor too! My copy of her book is such a mess. There is so much that I've stared and underlined. This is a book that I travel with — I have taken it literally everywhere.

LOOKING FOR HELP WITH HOMESCHOOLING?
You may not have seen that I have a brand new How to Homeschool webinar that is now available for instant access. This webinar is ALL of my best homeschooling tips gathered from the six years of speaking at homeschool conventions all wrapped up into one webinar. This is a crazy-amazing resource for you or anyone you know who may be considering homeschooling for the first time ever. With all the new homeschool families this year, I wanted to make sure they had all the best resources possible. The webinar goes over how to get started, how to homeschool simply (even without curriculum), how to balance homeschooling with working at home and just life, how to save money, how to homeschool your school-aged kids with littles in the house…and so much more!
