Sterling Louks, VP of Dynamynd, talks with Emily about the differing needs of children, particularly as to how they learn. When it comes to schooling, a one-size-fits-all approach does not work. Emily and Sterling provide practical strategies for making homeschooling (and #quarantinelife in general) a stress-free and positive experience for all.



  • “Every action, reaction, and interaction that we have is driven by the cognitive part of the mind.” – Sterling Loucks
