The OnlySchoolers Podcast: Helping You Homeschool


What happens when two homeschool moms, each with an only child, meet at the local ice-skating rink and strike up a friendship?We’re about to find out…We’re Christyn Edwards and Gina Prosch, and we created the OnlySchoolers Podcast and community to share the wisdom and hard-learned lessons of our years homeschooling only children.Our kids spend hours at our local rink each week, and while they skate, we wait…and talk. Our conversation topics range widely, but we always come back to homeschooling.Each of us quickly realized that “onlyschoolers” (our word for home-educating families with just one child) are a small percentage of the homeschool population and while there are plenty of resources for large families, those ideas don’t necessarily translate to the reality of the day-in and day-out of educating just one child.So to paraphrase Mahatma Gandhi, we are being the change we want to see in the world: a resource for onlyschoolers.But our ideas aren’t just for onlyschoolers. As any homeschooling parent can tell you, each child can require a different approach, so let us help you sort out how that looks in your home, whether you’re teaching one or a dozen. We hope the stories, ideas, and sympathetic ear we bring you on the podcast will help you create unique learning experiences for your own children.More than that, we know that creating a unique education for your child will strengthen your relationship and isn’t that why we’re homeschooling in the first place?The OnlySchoolers Facebook page and Instagram (our handle is @Onlyschoolers) serves as our virtual ice-rink, where we invite you to continue the conversations we begin on the podcast and gain a sense of community. It can be lonely being an only, so join us!
