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 a finite amount of time to teach our kids so curbing it as much as possible in this environment will serve you and your child well.
When it comes down to it our children are VERY emotional beings as they sort through all of this and that and the less emotional we can be the better when it comes to things like discipline, grading, guiding and teaching.
Remember in school growing up when your teacher had something subjective to grade, like an english paper, there was a rubric for them to follow?
Same applies here. A system is like a rubric to follow so the weight of the situation isn't solely on your shoulders. There is something to lean on and support you.
In the video above you can see how I use a simple system to combat the excuse factory that can come up... even when it is hard.
I can't wait to see what kinds of systems you have onboard!
Cheers to you and have a beautiful Holiday Season!
