How to Manage Toddlers and Homeschooling


Update: The live webinar was wonderful. You can view a recording of the event by clicking HERE. (Remember to click on the Video icon at the top right corner.)

I am so thrilled to announce that Homeschool Connections is hosting a series of free webinars between now and February (aka Burnout Month). This series is sponsored by mater et magistra, THE Catholic homeschooling magazine.

Our first webinar is just around the corner and presented by Homeschool blogger, Mary Ellen Barrett. Mary Ellen's topic is one that we all struggle with -- what to do with toddlers underfoot as we homeschool.


Date: Wednesday, September 29, 2010
Time: 8:00 pm, Eastern Daylight Time (7 pm Central)
Duration: 1 hour plus Q&A
Presenter: Mary Ellen Barrett
Fee: FREE
Description: Toddlers are cute, funny and full of energy which can be both the delight and destruction of your homeschool day. This webinar will give you some tips and tricks to gainfully occupy those wonderful little people so that you can work with your older children and keep your home (somewhat) intact.

A little preview:
  • Building marshmallow buildings
  • Kiddie pool school
  • Circle time
  • And many other ideas.
