I don’t often discuss parenting on this podcast, but when I read Jill Winger’s blog post on how she gets her kids involved on her homestead, I knew I had to bring her on to talk about this topic.  Jill began homesteading before she became a mother, so her three children have always known this way of life.  Jill and I discuss how we accomplish homesteading tasks with babies and toddlers underfoot, how we begin getting our children involved around the homestead, and why it’s important to give our children the gift of hard work.  If you want to instill the values of hard work and creativity into your children, may this episode give you inspiration along the way.
In this episode, we cover:

An old-fashioned philosophy of parenting
How kids of different ages can help around a homestead
Instilling a strong work ethic in your children
How homeschooling can build character
Making space for kids to explore their passions
The advantage of letting our kids experience failure
How we approach chores
