Lisa Marie Fletcher is a homeschooling mom of 5 kids ranging from preschool to high school. When her homeschooling journey began, she searched for Canadian homeschooling resources and started to share them online. That was the beginning of The Canadian Homeschooler – whose mission today is to connect homeschoolers across Canada with each other and with resources to help them on their journey.
There are a lot of things we don’t talk about enough in the homeschooling community. In the online world, this life is often presented with a rosy glow: families snuggled on couches reading together and working on beautiful worksheets with smiles and laughter.

Come with me into the “dark side” – the areas that are hard, messy, and rarely shared. Let’s talk about them together.
