Create a Positive Learning Environment – Part 1

Create a Positive Learning Environment with Dr. Jan BedellLiving in a household where the environment is negative is no fun for anyone.  There are many factors that could cause this undesirable situation to be happening in your home.  Some such factors can actually result in symptoms of learning struggles and even labels like ADD, ADHD or dyslexia.  I am not saying your child might need a label – far from it!  You just need to know what the possible causes are and what you as a parent can do to change them. Some of these causes that are affecting your children negatively could be something that you have never thought about and the simple solutions might surprise you!

In part 1 of this message, the Brain Coach will share ways to help metabolic (inner chemistry of the body) and neurodevelopmental issues. Also, you will be equipped with a way to change your interactions with your child from negative to positive. These are some of the first steps to creating a positive learning and home environment. Examples of how to make handwriting, math and reading a more positive part of your school day are included as well.

In part 2, we will tackle how to deal with the negative behavior coming from your child as it pertains to a sin nature we all inherited at birth.

Don’t miss the handout attached here with specific notes from the talk and examples of what I am talking about in this episode.

Struggling Learners and When to Get Help – MBFLP 143

mbflp-struggling-learners-when-to-get-help-v

 

How desperate we are to avoid labeling our kids! And with good reason … if they’re in a classroom setting, maybe. But as homeschoolers, we have a much better handle on the social side, and there are serious benefits to your struggling child when you get her tested earlier rather than later. This episode, we talk about our own struggling learner and what we discovered on the way from a late start … to a college scholarship! There’s hope!

Our special guests are Chris and Heather Laurie of Special Needs Homeschooling – they’re doing just that, and has a message of practical help and God-centered hope for families with special situations!

MBFLP – Homeschooling Boys

Radio Show Homeschooling Boys

Homeschooling is a great option for families with sons because frankly, institutional classrooms are not very friendly to normal, active, distractible young boys. On the other hand, the same traits which make it hard to teach boys in a schoolroom setting can make it challenging at home, too! This week we talk about how boys learn differently, and how you can work with their particular style to make education both effective and enjoyable — for them and for their teacher!
