Habits can be so hard to master. Whether you are a student or a parent, habits have the ability to create calm or chaos. In this webinar we explore some concrete actions to implement in your home so that changing and reviewing habits becomes a part of your journey.

We hope you were encouraged by our discussion about creating habits and how they can help your homeschooling journey. Remember, ambition is sometimes the thief of successful habit change. Start with one habit you would like to change or create and then move forward from there.
Remember the quote that Amanda offered us: “Expectations are premeditated resentments.” Carefully frame your expectations to be joyful so even if you don’t land exactly where you expected, you will be pleased with the landing itself.
We encourage you to set you and your student(s) up for success by carefully observing them and then determining habits that would be beneficial for you all.
We also spoke of the program Neatlings, which may aid you in establishing successful habits.
We also recommended you check out Dr.Russell A Barkley, PhD, for resources on ADHD.

Thank you. I don’t have any of my own children. However, some struggling learners are tutored by me in their own homes…pros and cons…and certainly a challenge for consistent habit development and growth….because the parent(s) have not even considered the benefits of developing healthy habits in all spheres of life.
Sometimes in my sincere desire to see the child begin to succeed, my own expectations get “dented”… So, to limit those, we now have regular “boundary-setting” conversations.
