The Right Way to Go About Homeschooling Your Child

The Right Way to Go About Homeschooling Your Child

So, over the past couple of months, I have stumbled on the wonderful life of “homeschooling your child”! Now let me say this first and foremost… I SUCK at “educating” my son. I'm not the “strict, chalkboard, listen, shut up, learn, repeat” parent that I thought I was going to be. NOPE! I'm far from that! I'm more so the “unschooling/deschooling”, relaxed, take it each day at a time schooling mom. Why? Quite honestly, who likes to sit at a desk writing on worksheets, watching videos of learning stuff all day long? Isn't that one of the...

8 Tips to Help Your Child Become a Life Long Avid Reader

I've always inspired my boys to become avid readers. Reading is such an important life skill that it is important to do everything that you can to help your children become the best readers they can be. Teaching a child at a young age how to read will definitely help them become a life long reader. It is important that you not only give them the skills to succeed in reading but give them the tools that make them enjoy it as well. I started reading to both of my boys at a very early age.

15 Must Read Books for Summer Reading Program – Middle School List

Summer Is Creeping Up On Us Parents.

It’s really hard to believe that in the fall I’ll have a 6th grader and it will be his last year as a middle schooler.

Where Has The Time Gone?
I don’t have a problem getting my youngest, who is going into 6th grade next year, to read. He will read 1-2 books a week. A lot of the books on the list below he’s read already at least 1 time.
