If you are new to the idea of home education, you may be one of those moms looking to know how to homeschool.  It is not school at home.  Homeschooling is a lifestyle focused on educating each individual child so that they grow into a thriving adult. So if you are overwhelmed and searching for answers as to how to homeschool, give yourself lots of grace.  Learning anything is a process and does not happen overnight. With everything in life, internal motivation is the game changer that propels us forward in any endeavor.  We want our resistant readers to learn to enjoy the ..read more

Processing Speed In Your Homeschool: How Long Is Long Enough?
A Heart For All Students

Does your child take forever to work on that math assignment?  How long is long enough? Every kid has THAT subject in their schoolwork. It takes them forever to do and seems to be an infinite source of frustration.  Thankfully, there is freedom and even benefits in calling it quits at the right time. Today I will talk about the mistake of pushing our children to do every problem. Hitting a certain number of problems alone does not accomplish the education we seek for our kids. Small chunks over time yield fruit.  How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. In this episod ..read more

Homeschool Math Tips: When Your Kid HATES Math

Help!  "My kid hates math!  I hate math!" Math.  You either love it or you hate it.   Our kids either love it or they hate it. I hear you and I hear this all the time from moms and kids.  The problem is that often it's just the way we approach teaching math (or any subject) that gets in the way of our kids' ability to learn.  I'm no exception. The traditional education model is so deeply engrained in our collective minds, that we are often held back simply because we don't check those expectations at the door.  I've been doing this a long time and I too ca ..read more

Obey Right Away? Is This What We Want For Our Kids?

Should you train your kids to obey right away? That’s the question and that’s the topic I’m discussing in today’s episode.  A sweet friend of mine asked this question a year ago and I answered her in a Facebook Live.  She asked this: “I was at a parenting conference this weekend.  The person leading the workshop told us that it was our job as parents to teach our children to obey right away.  He said we needed to expect this of our kids because that’s how we train our children to listen to and obey the Holy Spirit.   This didn’t sit well with me.  What do you thin ..read more

When homeschooling our kids, it's easy for us to get overwhelmed when our kids are struggling to learn.  Add in our kids' frustrations and their overwhelm can result in difficult behavior such as meltdowns and "tantrums".     And how we respond as parents makes all the difference.  In today’s episode, I chat about how God’s grace changes the way we help our children through their hard behaviors. He is big enough to handle our tantrums as adults and He is certainly big enough to handle our kid’s tantrums.  In this episode, you’ll hear: My experience with both my ..read more

Do you have a kid who melts down at the slightest frustration?    Wait... Is that you banging your head against a wall?  I get it.  I really do.  I know how brutal it can be navigating our kids' intense emotions and behaviors.  Because the reality is that when our kids are struggling, melting down, are irritable, refuse all the things... it's exhausting and frustrating. If we want to do more than just survive the hard days, we moms need to equip our kids with self-regulation tools.  In today's episode, I'm sharing one of my favorite self-regulation tools ..read more
