Millions of children and their parents are grappling with education at home as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The only problem is – most parents have never taught their own children.
Ainsley Arment is the founder of an online community that promotes learning at home and is the author of several books on the subject. In 2014, Ainsley Arment founded Wild + Free on Instagram (@wildandfree.co) which has since developed an very active (175k+ on Instagram) online community of parents focused on providing a quality education at home.
A mother of 5 and homeschooler for the past 11 years, Ainsley says that while most parents feel unprepared and overwhelmed by the idea of homeschooling their children, it can be done! And it can be a rewarding experience for children and parents alike!
Ainsley says the fears, worries, and anxieties are real – especially for those suddenly thrust into education at home, but the pandemic has provided an opportunity to step boldly into an opportunity many have never considered before.
