Apryl Duncan is a former writer for Verywell Family covering stay-at-home parenting. As a freelance writer and copywriter for more than 20 years, Apryl's writing has been published worldwide and translated into nine languages. She dedicated more than a decade to working in advertising and PR before becoming a work-at-home mom. One day she blinked and her older son had transformed into a walking, talking energy machine. That's when Apryl decided to give up her outside job to tackle her career as a stay-at-home mom full-time. Now she's working with her most demanding bosses yet: two boys and a baby girl.
Even with non-stop toddler demands and smelly baby diapers in the house, Apryl is still doing what she enjoys most. She thinks it's a privilege to be able to watch children grow and learn firsthand. That's why she loves homeschooling her kids, leading Sunday school for two and three year olds and teaching at the local homeschool group's coop for students from grades kindergarten through high school.
Apryl attended the University of Tennessee, majoring in communications with a minor in sociology. She completed her B.A. in Communications at Honolulu University.
