Description

Did you know that when you plant bamboo, you will water it, protect it, nurture it...and nothing happens for 5 years? At least it looks like nothing is happening, because it's all happening underground, where the bamboo is growing a complex root structure.



But above ground? Nothin'. You've got to faithfully water and care for that plant for f-i-v-e years before you get any proof that you're making any progress.



Homeschooling is a lot like bamboo.



In today's episode of the Read-Aloud Revival podcast, I'm sharing the audio from a recent Circle with Sarah (our monthly coaching sessions in RAR Premium) in which I'm talking about this same experience in homeschooling.



You work, and you work, and you work, and you can't always see the difference that slog is making.



But the seeming dormancy? It matters.



In this episode, you'll hear:



The power of one small action - it can change everythingHow to be sure we are using the right measuring stick (...are you?)How to know where to put your energy next



I also answer a listener question about what to do if you cry while reading emotional books aloud. (anybody? 🙋🏼‍♀️)
