When Your Kid Resists School



Embark on a transformative homeschooling journey with Kerry Beck and Julie Ross as they decode the secrets to resilient learning. This podcast episode redefines education, offering insights into overcoming resistance, creating a drama-free homeschool, and embracing the dynamic art of teaching.

Join Kerry and Julie in unraveling homeschooling complexities, sharing anecdotes, and providing invaluable advice. From decoding resistance to fostering a drama-free environment, this episode inspires parents to adapt teaching methods and embrace the unpredictable yet rewarding journey of homeschooling.


A little bit about our guest: Kerry Beck helps you get past the perfect Instagram image & move on to real life ways to homeschool and encourage your kids to love learning, think critically & Biblically, as well as influence those around them as adults. 


Kerry wants to help homeschoolers raise their children to lead for Jesus, instead of follow the crowd. She also inspires moms with her personal & spiritual stories of moving from overwhelmed to peace & resting in God.


In this episode, you will learn: 

  1. Root Causes of Resistance: Discover the underlying reasons behind your child's resistance to schoolwork, considering factors such as comprehension, boredom, distractions, and attitude.
  2. Importance of Taking Breaks: Learn the power of taking breaks, whether short pauses during challenging tasks or extended breaks from specific subjects, to break the resistance pattern and foster a positive learning environment.
  3. Individualized Learning: Embrace the idea of letting children choose topics of interest, allowing them to take ownership and leadership in their learning journey, ultimately reducing resistance and promoting engagement.
