40: Where We Let Go of Perfectionism
In this episode we talk all about the ways we can get perfectionistic in homeschooling and parenting. Striving for excellence is one thing but that can easily slide into perfectionism.  We talk about our own perfectionistic tendencies and their consequences.  We also talk about why it's actually a good thing to not complete the curriculum or have a messy house, for example.   Warning: this episode has some serious borderline obnoxious laughter at the beginning when Maren and Angela reminisce about their first experience with yoga class.  If you aren't into this, you may want to skip ahead a few minutes.   How To Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk by Faber and Mazlish.

49: Where Autopilot Saves the Day
Do you need to simplify your days?  Or do you need something easy to get you through a stressful day, week or season? Today Maren and Angela talk about the idea of Autopilot and how they use it to lower stress and simplify their days.  When you use Autopilot, much learning happens and it's easy on the homeschooling parent and child.  There are so many benefits, we wonder why we're not using it more often.   Today's podcast is brought to you by audible - get a FREE audiobook download and 30 day free trial at www.audibletrial.com/homeschoolunrefined Over 180,000 titles to choose from for your iPhone, Android, Kindle or mp3 player.

55: Where We Give Ourselves Credit
We're so happy to be back from our break and podcasting again!  In this episode, we reflect on how much of the work we do as homeschooling parents is intangible and not easily measured or noticed.  We talk all about why it is important to give ourselves credit for all that we're doing.
