As homeschoolers, we seem to turn to YouTube regularly. Whether it’s watching a documentary or the mom-dreaded slime videos, we often find ourselves there. Honestly, YouTube is full of amazing videos that can help your kids learn within a short period of time. It’s instant information right when you need it.
