From ABC's to Diplomas

Two questions...

1. Do you leave everything in your child’s future up to the OTHER people in their life? (ie. the 2nd grade teacher, soccer coaches, friends, friends parents, high school geometry teachers etc.)

2. Are you merely there for the food, water and shelter requirements of parenting?

My guess is that the answer to both of these is ...No!

Why?

Because they are your kids and if you are reading this you have a heart to be there for them and with them.  You want to love the...

You're Grounded... Again!

 

Well, the video quality leaves something to be desired (working on fixing it for the future friends) but the content is PRICELESS so be sure to listen and take notes!

Grounding, talks, yelling, spanking, talking, time-out, grounding.... blah blah blah...

Does it just keep happening?

This is a super common rut of repetition among families.  You are not alone.  

The question is WHY do the same infractions keep happening again and again with the same result?  That is...

Their Opinion Should Matter, but Not Too Much!

Uncategorized Jan 29, 2021
 
When it comes to opinions our kids are FULL of them, right!?
 
It is important that they know their opinions matter, their thoughts count and their ideas are worthy... but not so much that they think they are the center of the world.
 
(Watch the 15 minute full teaching above for all the goods or read the short version if you are next to a sleeping person.😴)
 
Worth. It always comes down to worth.

Taking Patience OUT of the Equation!

Uncategorized Dec 20, 2020
 

We have all been there, right?

Time and time again it has been proven that if we rely on patience it will 9 times out of 10 fail us.  As a species it is just not one of our strong suits and, let's be honest, the world today plays into our lack of this attribute even more.

So, let's just kick this unpredictable friend out of the equation when if comes to schooling at home, shall we?  

I want to note that we have a lifetime to work on patience and we always should be, but we have...

Find the Precious Diamonds in Your Day!

Uncategorized Dec 12, 2020

Let's be real.  Homeschooling is not always easy.  In fact, it rarely is what I would call "easy".  

But, there are these moments that make it all worth it now and so many more that come in the non-school moments.  

If I look into every day I can usually find several grateful moments.  Some are obvious like this one above while some others are a could be perfect moment, even if it is covered in potent slime.  But, there was something!

You are NOT Average and It's A Good Thing!

Uncategorized Nov 12, 2020
 

In this world it is easy to believe that the average is the way to go, but I ask...

What is Average?

You know what it isn't?

A REAL Person! 

The average of 2 and 6 is 4, right?

But, guess what? 

Neither the 2 or the 6 will ever be a 4.  Never.  There will have to be compromises to 6 and 2 in order to try and be a 4.  

Let your unique you, your unique kids and your unique schooling situation echo you!

The 3 Keys to Self Mastery

noisy to focused Nov 03, 2020
 

Can you imagine what it would be like to have your kids have self controlled behavior?  What about making good choices in middle, high school and college and into adulthood?

What would that peace of mind feel like for you?

The primary way our kids learn life skills and behavior is through our own actions and mimicking us. 

So, if we can walk ourselves through the steps of self mastery and show them how it works in every day situations, and walk them through the steps when they...

Self Talk to Self Mastery Pt.1

 

You know what my self talk was after I recorded this video for you?  

The world will not let me have a proper video with house work, garbage trucks, city edgers etc.  

Was that true? 

Of course not.  Just a bad timing happenstance... but it can easily feel like that way unless we put a stop to it with the first of these self-talk questions.

Is This REALLY True?

I was tempted to re-record this video for you, but it would have defeated the whole purpose of...
