Theis discussed on KSFO Morning Show with Brian Sussman with Katie Green


I'm seeing on social media seem very politically fraught right The minute a mom right supposed saying, Hey, I want to set up a pod. There's all this condescension and judgment that suddenly slams down on her like Are you considering other families? Are you considering lower income families, you know, And then there's a lot of talk about race and racism. Conversation sort of takes a turn away from the pod, Tio. Are you doing It correctly? Are you doing it The way I think you should be doing it. You know why that's so disappointing is because as moms we have or should have learned that you're not supposed to judge other moms because everyone's doing the best that they can. Right now.

I think four million kids were homeschooled last year, and this year it's expected to more than double to 10 million homeschooling is virtually free.

Theis you is you need a parent to be able to stay home to do it. So maybe it's not the richest family. But Mom or Dad can stay home to home school. That could be a very good option for some families. It's not for everybody. I, for one would not be able to homeschool my kids. I just don't command their attention like that. Um, I'm not a professional. I admit to it. I can't do that. But a lot of other parents can And they are..
