Hosts of the Homeschool Unrefined Podcast show you how let go of traditional measures of success, and instead measure learning by curiosity, joy, self-regulation, and critical thinking.
Children deserve more than the systems we’re currently using to educate them. Hardworking teachers, diligent administrators, and devoted parents are trying their best in an outdated system that isn’t meeting our children’s complex needs.
Instead, imagine a different way to learn.
With helpful, practical tips and anecdotes from homeschooling families, this guide covers all you need to know about learning differences, mental health, devices and technology, socialization, and more. It’s for traditional school families who are learning to balance outer expectations with their own needs with a different way of learning. It’s for homeschool families who are looking for a more inclusive, supportive, and authentic approach.
Angela and Maren pair their years of teaching in a variety of different schools with their years of homeschooling their combined seven children. As they know first-hand, any parent, child, or family can thrive as they unlearn old ways, lean into their own strengths, and celebrate unconventional wins.


As someone who's planning on moving to homeschooling in the next few months after a year of unrest from all three kiddos, this book was very comforting. It made a lot of my worries seem manageable, and my concerns and questions received answers I really wasn't getting from the community through conversations thus far. I'm so grateful I had the opportunity to read this. Very well written and will be a resource for me to look back on for years to come!

Think Differently About Learning is an empowering call to the revolution that so many families deeply need. While homeschooling isn't a magic want or a perfect fit for all kids or all care-givers, this book outlines all the ways it might just be your family's answer to a life of greater joy, less stress, deeper connection, and more authentic learning. I truly can't recommend it enough.
