We started Journey Down the Rabbit Trail writing membership because of my reluctant writer. Regular writing programs didn’t work for him because he lacked confidence and drive when it came to writing. He didn’t even want to start because he simply didn’t know how to! I knew we needed to give him some Rabbit Trails magic to make things to change.
On top of this, though, I also needed something that he could be flexible with. Many times reluctant learners need the freedom and flexibility to change things up just a bit. This can easily be transfered over to writing. I came up with three writing tips to help reluctant learners so that you can help your kiddo who may have this same struggle.Read more

We believe in a relaxed, child-led approach to education allowing the kids to pursue their interests. Because of this, I like to have books on lots of various subjects available to them. When my kids have a question, my famous line is, “We have a book about that!” Books are available for literally every subject. They are made for tough little readers and are surprisingly durable compared to a lot of other books we have! Usborne Books and More just never disappoints me! Let me show you how you can add Usborne Books in your homeschool.

This school year is coming to a close and I have been perusing curriculum, thinking of how I want next year to go. This also means I’ve been busy thinking about creating a plan for our homeschool, too. I love having a relaxed homeschool, but this year my plans got a little bit too relaxed. I become too disorganized and let our homeschool vision slide. Next year, I have a plan to put my homeschool planning on Autopilot to keep our vision in check and stay on top of our daily tasks.
Your methods don’t fit in with your traditional homeschooling friends. You may dabble in Charlotte Mason, but don’t follow it to a T. You don’t unschool because you use curriculum, but you love being able to use real world resources. Does any of this sound like you? If so, you just may be using a relaxed homeschooling method.
A lot of homeschoolers can attest to the times in life when you can’t homeschool. Sometimes life happens and school just… doesn’t. So, what do you do when school work has to take a back seat to other priorities?
