3 WAYS YOU’RE STARTING ON THE WRONG FOOT
It amazes me when I hear parents say that their kids don’t like learning that way or their kids don’t like those books or even their kids don’t like doing school that way in a famous word of just being ‘hard’
There are three (3) ways you could be starting homeschooling the wrong way or having a bad start. This could be happening when starting from the beginning or transitioning over from a group schooling environment or a different method of homeschooling. We often use the Robinson curriculum and it’s a unique method where the kids are teaching themselves and it’s a top curriculum that uses the very best materials. This curriculum is very minimalistic but very effective, powerful, affordable and it teaches kids great study habits that they would keep for the rest of their lives. Homeschooling in this manner will bring a positive obvious result in the long run.
What is homeschooling?
A home school is a school in which parents teach their children an academic curriculum at home instead of sending them out to a public or private school.
When teaching a child at home, the first thing to teach a child is study habits and a mental attitude.
This is because study habits will improve your child's grades, make school less stressful, and help your child remember their work while a positive mental attitude can help the children form their beliefs, feelings, values, and dispositions to act in certain ways.
These acts help children extract material from books and use them to their advantage and then help them to do things that develop their understanding. These are more important to homeschooling.
The 3 things RC parents do differently are;
They do this all in the name of being a wife, mom, cook, cleaner, nurse, specialist, and domestic engineers and accountants. They are...

In this video I am excited to share with you a system that can work for sharing one set of math flashcards for multiple children..while still keeping in line with the RC purist way of memorizing math facts.
One thing that I REALLY appreciate about Dr. Lybrand is that he focuses on outcomes vs the perfect curriculum. This is a perspective that has truly changed how I view pretty much everything in life. This video is no way is trying to "dis" Ms. Nicole or those who use her videos, it's simply trying to help you see things in a different way with a long term outcome in mind. Ultimately, it's your choice the tools you use to achieve whatever your vision is.
If it's alright with you, I'd like to share a moment that both broke my heart and mended it this week.
As most of you might know I have a son with an I.E.P and with that means some learning challenges when it comes to homeschooling. Although his workload is the same as the others, there are areas where he excels and others that take him longer than his siblings.
Our current set up has to be where everyone does school work together at the kitchen table. My son confessed to me this week after asking why he seemed so gloomy, that this set up was the cause of a lot of anguish. He was more easily distracted by others, although he understood everyone is on their own timeline, he still felt bad seeing his younger sister pass him in math, and seeing the others start their writing assignments before him. He obviously needed more time and fewer distractions.
My idea was that he wake up every morning at 5 am, a couple of hours before the others, to work on math in peace....
Today, we'll cover the 3 toxic myths about homeschooling that all beginners MUST break away from in order to achieve sustainable homeschooling.
Getting your mindset right is the #1 thing you have to conquer if you want to succeed in homeschooling. As the popular saying goes, "You are your worst enemy and best asset" ;-)
From serving many families through coaching calls, from all walks of life over the last couple of years, I can tell you that the best and most successful families are those with the right mindset and attitude, who have the right beliefs about homeschooling.
It's myth-busters time, my friend! Time to re-align your perspectives and make things right :)
Myth #1: "In order for my kids to learn, I have to do all the teaching.”
It’s actually the opposite. Teachers today constantly ask themselves, Why is this happening? Why isn’t our instruction transferring?
Even seeing the dismal results of public school,...
