Husbands And Homeschooling

Podcast #3

Show Notes – Husbands and Homeschooling

Join Lindsey and Richele as they look at homeschooling through the lens of homeschooling dads and discuss what potential role a husband can play in the homeschool room. Many husbands are skeptical of homeschooling the children, others are hands-on in their approach, and some take a backseat altogether. Homeschooling can be stressful on a marriage, but it doesn’t need to be. As moms, we want what is best for our children, and our husbands’ goals are no different. We will be sharing specific talking points that should be asked regularly throughout the year between a homeschooling couple to ensure that everyone is on the same page. Does your husband want to help but just isn’t sure how to begin? Are you unsure how to motivate the unmotivated homeschooling dad? Listen in as we answer these questions and more about a husband’s role in the homeschool room.

Vintage HS Moms: Time + Child = Passion

Time_To_DiscoverLet’s Talk About Giving Your Kids Time to Discover Their Passion!

with your host Felice Gerwitz Podcast #48

Years ago I discovered an amazing thing – if you give your kids time, they will either A: get in trouble B: create trouble for others or C: discover their passion. In this audio I explain ways to encourage your children to find constructive ways to spend their time, and how I’ve been delighted (or appalled) by some of their concoctions! My children have discoverd passions for baking fudge, fixing small engines, photography, writing, and the latest … stop motion video using custom colored Legos(R). If you have difficulty motivating your children join me!

Show Notes:

1. Schedule free time, begin slow … 15-25 minutes one time a week, then two times, then three or more.

2. Print out the image on the left and learn the five steps to encouraging your child to seek their passion – I am telling you, the number one reason works great. You kids will continue to explore and try new things if you are excited about their accomplishments.

3. The audio covers some of the many ways to encourage creativity, yet the goal is to allow your child to explore, create, investigate and discover their own ideas and hobbies. Beginning with a foundation will encourage children who do this on their own.
