Home Education Strategies For Raising Resilient Children with Katie Wells

Katie Wells, CTNC, MCHC, Founder and CEO of WellnessMama.com and Wellnesse.com. A mom of six with a background in journalism, she took health into her own hands and started researching to find answers to her health struggles. Her research turned into a blog and podcast, and she’s now written over 1,500 blog posts, three books, and was named one of the 100 most influential people in health and wellness. When she’s not reading medical journals, creating new recipes, or recording podcasts, you can find her somewhere outside in the sun with her kids or undertaking some DIY remodeling project.Obligatory additional unrelated randomness: doula, speed-reader, hates bananas, loves baseball, scuba-diver, INTJ, highly experienced in answering the question, “why.”

How can you enhance your child’s education to meet the unknown demands of their future?

In our rapidly changing world, it can be difficult to find education that will serve your children’s needs as they grow towards adulthood. Very few of the options take into account what children might encounter once they leave school. So, how do you find resources to develop your child’s ability to learn rapidly, adapt quickly, stay curious, and excel at problem solving?

I’m excited to have Katie Wells on the show today. She’s Founder of Wellness Mama, mom of six, and a best-selling author. Her background in research, journalism, and nutrition has made her a powerful ally in education empowerment.

Our education system focuses too much on what to learn rather than how to learn. That means it often hinders the growth and development that will serve your child’s future best. If you’re looking for a better approach to enhance your child’s education from your home, this episode is for you.
