Yes, You Can Homeschool!
Self-Paced Equipping Course
Developing Your Child's Unique Strengths
& Character Through Home Education
Tell me if this sounds like you:
You believe in the value of homeschooling but aren't really sure how to begin
You would like to homeschool but fear you won't be able to meet your child's academic needs
You know public school is not working for your child but wonder about things like socialization
The thought of picking out curriculum, creating a schedule, or managing multiple children sounds impossible
What if there was a way to:
Develop and organize a homeschooling plan that uniquely fits and benefits your family
Be confident that your children are getting a quality education in both academics and life skills
Adjust you child's edcuation to fit their unique interests and strengths
Develop God-honoring independence and critical thinking skills
Acquire the tools to manage the difficulties and unknowns you are going to face
Five Concerns That Hold Parents
Back From Homeschooling
In the YYCH Equipping Course, we really flesh this out because there are a lot of components to socialization. It is much broader than just “being social.” But in that regard, surprisingly, homeschooled children rate equal to and often even stronger in socialization skills than their public school peers. Homeschooling by nature causes you to interact with a variety of people of different ages and backgrounds, which prepares your children to comfortably embrace much more than the typical same age/same grade relationships.
I will never forget when our 15 yr-old son wanted to be a pastry chef and took the Witon cake decorating courses. I remember feeling a little concerned as I watched him enter the first classroom with the other 11 students, all of whom were over 60 years old! But his homeschooling had prepared him well! He reported, "It was great mom. Along with tips on baking, they gave me dating advice. I now have 11 grandmas!"
The YYCH Equipping Course includes a schedule for standard high school academic requirements, as well as tips for when and how to begin the college search, so you and your student will be well prepared for those decisions. All my children attended college, were in the Honors program, and received awards and scholarships. They were not the exception. Most homeschool students that choose to attend college are equipped not only academically but emotionally and spiritually for the transition.
It’s true that homeschooling requires you to be both your children’s teacher and parent, and this can add a different dynamic. But the truth is, we have seen character growth in both our children and ourselves!
We know it can feel like a seriously daunting task taking on the education of your children. I have spoken personally with literally hundreds of parents over the years and this is the number one fear they bring up. So, along with other common fears, we will help you become equipped to see just the opposite: that you are able to successfully homeschool your children! If you knew my background when I started homeschooling, you’d say, if she can do it, anyone can!
The truth is most children have an area or a couple of areas where they struggle. My daughter was incredible at reading and writing. But math was a different story. She needed so much more support and time to become proficient in it. My second child struggled with reading and writing but was great at math! My third child was academically gifted, but he needed help with character development, which is equally important in the grand scheme of life! In the YYCH Equipping Course, we will help you learn how to find and/or tailor your curriculum, time, and focus to meet the unique needs of your child.
The truth is, homeschooling is much more
doable than most people think!

So who am I? And why should I teach you about homeschooling?
Hi! I'm Erin Barry, and I wrote the book on homeschooling! (Well, I wrote "a" book - Yes, You Can Homeschool! The Terrified Parent's Companion To Homeschool Success - an Amazon best seller.)
More importantly, I imagine that you and I have a lot in common. We are both passionate about our families, and I was terrified about the prospect of homeschooling (honestly, I thought it was weird!).
We sort of fell into homeschooling due to an issue at our daughter’s kindergarten and really only planned to homeschool for that one year! But, I ended up loving it and found myself continually awed by the many benefits for their education, personal growth, and our family relationships. We ended up homeschooling all three children all the way through high school! And I am so glad we did.
Since then, I have trained thousands of parents across the US and abroad, as well as worked with just about as many students ranging from preschool through High School.
I still remember very well what it was like to struggle with curriculum, teaching methods, and my own confidence. That’s why I continue to work with families today.
I am confident in the benefits of homeschooling and I want to do all I can to encourage, equip, and support families who want to homeschool but may struggle in one way or another.

To me, this is the complete package! It is solid information and draws me in on all levels... challenges me spiritually and intellectually, and it has a warm and genuine feel.
Tommy & Candace
The truth was shared! Hearing about the faith and personal testimonies that go into homeschooling was encouraging. Thank you again for making this. We are so encouraged and feel very empowered to lead our children on this journey.
I will be honest, since I am already a homeschooling mom, I thought, yeah, yeah...I am sure I will pick up something here and there, but this lesson really inspired me and made me realize that I needed it just as much as a never-have-homeschooled parent.
That's Why I Created The

Each lesson addresses key areas or issues that parents are often concerned about or that have even caused some to quit. The overall program is completely self-paced, so you can do it at your own speed and within your own schedule.

Everything is so well thought out. I truly felt captured by the richness of the Biblical references. I feel like this is reaching somewhere deeper in me than just the surface of homeschooling. It’s good! In the fullness of being “good.”
The main idea of the purpose of education is well-developed, the screens with quotes are helpful, and the recaps at the end are nice. It’s significant information to chew on without being over my head, too lengthy, or not enough. I am excited for what lies ahead!

If you caught yourself nodding your head to at least four of the
nine 10 points above, then I absolutely cannot wait to meet you inside the Yes, You Can Homeschool! Equipping Course.
Other questions terrified parents might ask before saying "yes"
to the Yes, You Can Homeschool! Equipping Course
Absolutely! You want value for your hard-earned money and your time investment, and we are committed to delivering just that. Most parents invest regularly in lessons and help for their children but are less naturally inclined to invest in help for themselves. Homeschooling can feel like a daunting task. Where do you start? How do you wade through all the information? The YYCH Equipping Course helps parents gain practical skills and insights, as well as wisdom from those who have successfully accomplished what you are embarking upon.
The course is self-paced and available at will. You will have access to five sections with a total of 18 lessons. Each lesson includes a video, followed by a corresponding PDF worksheet/homework application that’s available for download, and an optional survey where you can give feedback for the lesson.
I love connecting with parents and helping them find answers to their questions. You can email me through our dedicated HELP! Desk or we can chat within The Home Educated Mind Community (a one-year Free membership is included with the Equipping Course) where there are other parents and ongoing, searchable Topics and threads.
While most questions can be addressed through the above options, I occasionally host a Live Q&A on Zoom. Beyond that, for more personalized engagement, members of The Home Educated Mind receive additional discounts on private, professional educational consulting, mentoring, and tutoring services.
The course material includes unlimited and indefinite access! Access to The Home Educated Mind Community is provided for one year with an option for renewal at a monthly or annual rate.
Everyone is welcome. However, at The Home Educated Mind, we live and therefore educate from a Christ-centered, Biblical worldview. As such, the course is faith-based and would most likely not be a good fit for you.
I loved the testimony about your daughter not only getting the scholarship that they told her she shouldn't even apply for, but also that she received so much MORE! It makes it all the more sweeter when a person accomplishes what they are told they cannot and reminds me that we should never calculate without God. I love the "but God" moments when we start looking at things in a way that seems hopeless...and then God steps in!
This lesson should be titled, When February Hits, Go Back and Re-watch This! I love how you talked about how education is always working toward an end goal, and who do you want to be influencing that direction? I really appreciated all of those quotes, I'm hanging some of them in my homeschool room!
