We’ve been working from home — and we’ll be honest, it hasn’t been easy! Managing emails, meetings, calls, and our kids has been an interesting learning curve. We, like all parents, want to make sure we’re doing it right (Who are we kidding? there is no right. We want to make sure we’re doing our best.) We’ve been so inspired by the stay-at-home learning schedules we’ve seen on social media as a great way to give kids the structure and stability they find in the classroom, and crave at home.
At HOMER, our goal is to help you raise lifelong learners. As things change day by day, we are being challenged to continuously find ways to adapt and keep our families’ lives running. Here are our tips on how you and your family can make the best of this time at home and encourage learning and growing.

Kids are always learning, exploring, and creating, and that means they are using up a lot of energy! As parents, we know that giving kids healthy, nutritious meals gives them the fuel they need. But if you have a picky eater on your hands, what do you do? Our friends over at Yumble are dedicated to helping take mealtime stress off parents’ plates. Keep reading for their tips on how to get even the pickiest of eaters to enjoy healthy foods throughout the day!
