TMBH 07: Teaching your Kids about Money with Matt Matheson
Money is often a tough topic for parents to talk about with kids. Maybe this is because many of us have been raised to believe that it is taboo to talk about money. Maybe it's because nobody ever had these conversations with us, so we flounder over what to say. Maybe we just don't want to give bad advice. Whatever our reluctance to chat about money, it is an important topic we need to address. On this episode of the podcast I am joined by Matt Matheson who talks about the five areas we need to discuss with our kids and how we can work simple money lessons into our everyday lives by taking advantage of teachable moments.

TMBH 01: Why Your Homeschool Needs a Vision
So often when we begin thinking about homeschooling our kids we form a picture in our heads of what we want it to be like. Unfortunately for many of us, the idyllic vision we create in our heads is not exactly what comes to pass when we actually begin homeschooling. Does this mean we have to give up the complete vision we created and just settle for checking boxes and getting things done? Not at all. Instead we can find the virtue between the two vices and create a homeschool that will serve the very real people in our real homes. In this episode we talk bout the struggle and how to address the solution.
