Helping Teens Handle Winter Blues

This week on Homeschool Highschool Podcast: Helping Teens Handle Winter Blues.

Helping Teens Handle Winter Blues

Helping Teens Handle Winter Blues

Many folks do not like winter. That is okay. However, at times the not-like-winter actually becomes more than that. It becomes winter blues.

The official name for Winter blues is “seasonal affective disorder.” But sometimes it is not a full disorder, it’s just a “who likes winter?” mindset.

The winter is cold and the days are short. The sky is gray most of the time and seems to just hover six inches above our heads (especially in the mid-Atlantic, where we live). 

Closed in and gray. That makes it hard to have the energy to do your best at homeschooling. With that in mind, here are some ideas for you from real life experiences and trainings I have had as a mental health counselor. In my career, I have worked with number of homeschool families and clients who have the winter blues. (It is probably more common than you think.)

What Are The Winter Blues?

Have you noticed that you and or your teens are feeling kind of down? Where your body feels lethargic, like you have to almost carry yourself around or drag yourself from place to place? It would be easy to just sit on the couch and watch YouTubes all day long.

Teenagers may feel like hibernating. That is, they might want to just sleep all day long. Unfortunately this messes up their biorhythms. Then they stay awake later and later into the night. And that just becomes this vicious cycle of everything being off rhythm…which actually adds to that lethargic and winter blues feeling.

Many people will also experience carb cravings. As if your body is saying, I need ice cream and chips all day long. I need it. I need it. However, what your body (or your teen’s body) is trying to say is that it is running low on serotonin. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that is in charge of much of our energy, concentration and our good moods.

Our serotonin will often dip during the wintertime. That is related in part to a lack of vitamin D because there is not enough sunshine for the lifestyles that we live. Therefore, we have to do some things to help our serotonin along.

Here are some things we can do for helping teens handle winter blues (and anyone else, for that matter). 

Ways To Beat The Winter Blues

There are several ways to help make the winter blues get better.

Get Full Spectrum Lamp or Light Bulbs

The first thing is really practical, yet easy to miss. Get a full spectrum lamp or a few full spectrum light bulbs. Put them in any lamp that is sitting around the house. 

These are lights that have all of the light rays except for the dangerous ones. It is not the kind that gives you a sunburn, but you are getting a mimicking of sunlight from this light bulb.

If you get one of these lamps or light bulbs in one of the family lamps and put it within three or four feet of your teen while leaving it on for about fifteen minutes as they do their schoolwork, on most days, they will usually start feeling a bit better after a while.

However some teens don’t like that much intensity of light around them. In this case, just stick the light in a corner of a room and leave it on for about an hour during the day. You will be able to get enough light  to raise energy levels. This helps with focus and with those carb cravings. 

God made light to be a therapeutic thing for us, and when we can’t have it from His natural sun, get these fancy little lights that don’t cost all that much from the hardware store or the grocery store or simply order one. 

Take Walks

Another thing you can do for helping teens handle winter blues is to take a walk. Even though it is cold outside in the wintertime, if you can get outside and move your bodies you’ll be able to walk off daily stress hormones that burn off stress which increases a neurotransmitter called dopamine. 

Dopamine can work together with serotonin with the full spectrum light to significantly improve mood and specific direct focus on the things teens need to pay attention to. 

But sometimes you just aren’t able to get outside and go for that walk. When that happens, find YouTube videos with exercise. In fact, 7 Sisters has a fitness curriculum with exercise videos, taking kids through safe and healthy physical activity. It doesn’t particularly matter what the movement is; it just needs to be some form of movement. 

However, according to the research at the University of California, if you go outside and have trees around you, simply seeing the trees will increase some of the neural activity that improves mood. A bare tree in the wintertime is somehow good for mood. 

Eat Healthy Food

Another thing for helping teens handle winter blues is eating healthy food. Healthy foods mean good proteins, colorful fruits and vegetables because good protein and colorful food have micronutrients that work together to literally make those neurotransmitters work. 

Teens are short on these micronutrients, which are like the Legos you snap together to make a neurotransmitter. And the most important one is serotonin. 

And teens learn about this in a 7 Sisters homeschool health curriculum because we want them to know they are not just eating healthy food because mom said so. There is really a neurological reason to eat healthy foods besides all the obvious health benefits of it.

Monitor Sleep Patterns

Monitoring and watching sleep patterns can be difficult because it becomes an active will sort of activity. A lot of times, teenagers in the wintertime want to sleep and sleep and then sleep some more. And, true, teenagers do need a lot of sleep, and they probably need a little extra sleep in the wintertime. 

But more than 10 hours is going to overdose them with melatonin, which is the hormone that keeps them asleep while they’re sleeping. This will cause them to feel groggy which can lead to depressive kinds of feelings. Literally, over 10 hours becomes toxic. 

Somehow, you have to work out a deal with your teen that 10 hours is the max. They can sleep in every once in a while, like once a week perhaps, because they’re teenagers, and they deserve to sleep in one day. They shouldn’t go under seven hours very often, but ten hours should be the max.

If they mix up their day and night schedule, you can help them slowly get back to normal so that they are sleeping during the night and awake while the sun is up.  

Have them up and awake in the hours when the sun is up, which is really just the way the body needs things to happen because it does its healing hormones while they sleep and does it best in the dark. And similarly, they have other things their body needs to do while they’re awake

Get Them Laughing

One of the best things you can do is to get your teen laughing. To feel better, everybody needs some laughter in their lives. We know from scripture that a Mary heart does good like a medicine, and it really does. 

Research shows when we laugh, our body releases endorphins and oxytocins that improve mood, but are actually good for our immune system. Isn’t that wild? 

This means if you haven’t had a chance to laugh together, find something funny like movies or Netflix or YouTube videos or things you know will get good giggles out of each day. 

You will find laughter is healthy for the body and soul, and a family that laughs together likes life better together.

Do Fun Stuff For School

Grab the curriculum that is boring you to tears and set it aside. Then take two weeks off that curriculum and, in its place, do fun things that count as school. 

You can read a silly book like JIS and Wooster and do a study guide for it or even do some cinema study guides for literature learning. You can count those as books instead of the usual books and field and study guides. 

Just mix things up or go on some unusual field trips, like a museum you haven’t been to in years or go drive to a different indoor state park or national park if there’s one nearby. 

Changing the boring things up will cause a change in rhythm and when you get back to the rhythms, it is actually very healthy for the brain. It helps the brain to calibrate, reduces anxiety, and helps them feel better. So change things up on the academics and in the experiences for helping teens handle winter blues.

What are some ideas or ways to beat the winter blues that you found? Are there some fun things that you do to mix things up and make it fun? We would love to hear about it, so send us an email or throw something out in the 7 Sisters Homeschool Facebook group because we all learn together. You matter and we all appreciate you being there.

How To Have More Confidence As A Homeschool Mom This Year

Do you lack confidence as a homeschool mom? A number of moms on the Homeschool Sanity Facebook page have commented that they do. This is The Homeschool Sanity Show, the episode where we discuss how we can have more confidence as homeschool moms this year.

Hey, homeschoolers! Before we dive into the topic of mom confidence, I’d like to thank CTC Math for sponsoring this episode.

Sponsor

That means you have access to a complete online homeschool math curriculum for all your kids for 18 months!

Why We Lack Confidence

Before we can talk about building confidence, let’s talk about why we lack it in our homeschooling.

The first reason is fairly obvious: we haven’t homeschooled before. Even classroom teachers can be intimidated by the prospect of teaching all subjects to multiple students–especially their own. It’s normal to lack confidence without experience.

The second reason we lack confidence is we are aware of our shortcomings. I was keenly aware of my lack of organization–something I’ve written and spoken about extensively, and which troubles many a would-be homeschool mom. And it wasn’t just messiness I was worried about. I’d been excited about a lot of projects in the past that I’d lost interest in. What if I did that with homeschooling?

Many homeschooling moms didn’t get good grades in general or in particular subjects, causing them to worry about their ability to teach their own children.

The third reason we lack confidence is because of messaging from other people. We may have family members or friends who disapprove of homeschooling and tell us about homeschool horror stories. From childhood, we may have heard about our shortcomings repeatedly. Or we were mistreated, causing us to wonder who we are to take on this important responsibility. Finally, other homeschoolers can make us feel less than confident by presenting an unattainable picture of homeschooling. Engineers in your support group who lead a championship robotics team. Homeschoolers who pay for expensive private tutoring and classes to ensure their child’s success. Mothers with supportive family who have lots of time to plan and implement an enriched education. You may feel like you’re not qualified.

How to Homeschool with New Confidence This Year

Inexperience, shortcomings, and others’ messaging can make us feel ill-equipped to homeschool successfully. But here is how we can overcome and take on homeschooling with a new confidence this year.

First, we can begin seeing ourselves as co-learners rather than professors. I learned more about child development and education by homeschooling my kids than I ever did in school or my work as a psychologist. We don’t want to fail in our homeschooling and parenting, but failing is the only way we learn. There are no homeschooling parents who haven’t made mistakes. There are also no classroom teachers who have been perfect.

The only way to grow in confidence as a homeschool mom is to do it. If we are so terrified of making mistakes with our kids that we never try homeschooling or quit at the first sign of challenge, that is the real failure. I’m not saying that everyone is called to homeschool. But if you feel called and you don’t take that call because of fear of messing up your kids, I think you will live to regret it.

These are the things I was afraid of when I began homeschooling: being too disorganized to follow through; having a child who couldn’t read; having an impulsive, immature child who would get hurt; choosing the wrong discipline strategy; having a child behave inappropriately online; having a child who couldn’t write well; having a child rebel; having a child embarrass me. I experienced ALL of these things. And praise God that I did. I’m not afraid of them anymore. The Lord got me through every single one of them.

The second way we can grow in confidence is to focus on our strengths. Organization wasn’t my forte’, but making learning fun and exciting was. As long as our homeschool was reasonably organized, my kids would focus on the fun unit studies, field trips, and co-op activities we did. And that’s what my kids remember.

I disliked gathering the supplies needed to do experiments only to discover that something didn’t work. What I loved doing was teaching literature, writing, and speaking. So my friend and I swapped those responsibilities based on our strengths. She was organized with the labs and I was organized with language arts. Teach your kids from your strengths and share responsibilities with a friend or co-op in your weaker areas.

We also focus on our strengths when we pursue our passions. Teaching world history wasn’t my strength because I had no background in it. But that’s why I was so excited about the topic. I would have read the lessons even without my kids. Even if you’ve struggled with a subject in the past, you can be an exceptional teacher because you’re passionate about learning and teaching it now.

The third way we can grow in confidence is to make the right comparisons. You’ve probably heard that when we feel we are falling short, it’s because we are comparing the inside of our homeschool (and what’s really going on) to the outside of someone else’s homeschool (where it’s carefully curated to present the best image).

But don’t get me wrong. There will be areas that another homeschool mom is further ahead than you are. She’s been doing it longer, has different abilities, has a supportive family, or kids with different strengths. Before you wish you were her, realize that she has made choices that you wouldn’t make. I used to feel inadequate with a mom who was constantly planning fun outings for the kids down to healthy snacks for them to enjoy afterward. But I couldn’t be her and didn’t want to be her. I placed a higher priority on academics and cleaning at home. Yet, what a blessing it was to enjoy her gift for planning activities that my kids enjoyed!

The Bible describes the kinds of comparisons we make as being as foolish as a foot comparing itself to an eye in importance. We are all part of the same body. We can all help one another as homeschoolers so we can achieve our unique goals.

When a friend or family member who doesn’t approve of homeschooling questions your ability to homeschool because of some shortcoming, you can say, “Oh, there are bigger issues than that to prevent me from doing a good job at homeschooling.” You’re likely to surprise a homeschool hater that way.

We can stop worrying about what another mom we know or what a social media influencer is doing because that’s not our role. But we can also stop the comparisons by comparing ourselves to Jesus. Are we as loving and faithful and just as He is? No? Then we should give up. Really. We can stop trying to be great homeschool moms and realize that we can’t do it. Instead, we need Jesus to take over. We need Him to use our unique combination of weaknesses and strengths to be the homeschool mom He planned all along.

Instead of worrying about whether we are going to ruin our kids for life, we can give the responsibility back to Jesus, trusting that He will work everything together for their good and ours. In that sense, we can be confident as homeschool moms because we are confident in Him. What a relief it is for me to know even now that I don’t have to worry about what I did or didn’t do. God had it under control and He still does. Philippians 1:6 is a verse we can hold on to: “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

Conclusion

We can grow in confidence this year as we continue to homeschool, focusing on our strengths, and making the right comparisons. Ultimately, we can be confident that we don’t have what it takes to homeschool our children successfully, but Jesus working through us does. Amen?

I pray this episode has been a blessing to you. Thanks again to CTC Math!

Have a happy homeschool week!

Homeschooling Through Tragedy

Homeschooling Through Tragedy | On this episode, Lisa Nehring talks with one of her adult kids, Kendra Vittioe, about a life-threatening accident Kendra lived through.| #homeschoolpodcast #podcast #homeschool #homeschooltragedy #tragedyandhomeschoolin #familycrisis #copingwithtragedyHomeschooling Through Tragedy

On this episode, Lisa Nehring talks with one of her adult kids, Kendra Vittioe, about a life-threatening accident Kendra lived through.

When Kendra was 14, she, her siblings, and a friend were in an accident where the minivan they were riding in was t-boned by a truck. Kendra survived a frontal lob head injury that could have killed her. A piece of her skull was removed, and the neurosurgeons literally had to vacuum pieces of glass from her brain.

This was a “near miss” tragedy, as Kendra and everyone else involved walked away from the accident with physical injuries that healed.

Have 13:5 & 6: “Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.”

Jer 29:11: For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Our animals- a horse and a dog at the time- helped Kendra regain her confidence.

Having “green therapy- the ability to just go outside and take long walks.

Parents being aware of the anxiety- or trauma response- to certain stimuli and remind their kids to breathe and that it will be alright.

Being aware of what the kids can and not do- keeping in touch with them so that parents aren’t going “too easy” or “too hard” on them.

Kendra and her husband Tony are homeschooling their own children. You can find Kendra blogging at Life’s a Journey and on Pinterest.

Raising Readers: Reading Aloud Past the Kinder Years

 Raising Readers: Reading Aloud Past the Kinder Years |Learn how to make your family read-aloud time a fun adventure for everyone, Mom and Dad included! #homeschoolpodcast #podcast #homeschool #readaloud #reading #raisingreaders #familyreading #readingbooks Raising Readers: Reading Aloud Past the Kinder Years

 

Episode #34- On this podcast episode, Crystal talks about the importance of reading to children of all ages and how to make your family read-aloud time a fun adventure for everyone, Mom and Dad included!

Parenting is one of those things that come with a never-ending list of “research suggests you should ______.” Opinions, studies, best practices, and ever-evolving philosophies abound when it comes to how to raise your children successfully and, at the very least, how to avoid messing them up! You don’t have to look far to find the latest unsolicited advice, from never saying no to your children to not letting them eat even one grain of sugar.

Much of the advice, as well-meaning as it may be, is speculative, highly debated, and “trendy.” You can find conflicting evidence everywhere that suggests there isn’t a single universal “truth” in how to best navigate the world of child-rearing outside of the Bible. Yet, aside from this, it is universally agreed that reading with your children is important. Reading with your children is the simplest and most effective way to support your children’s education and raise healthy, well-rounded children.

Raising Readers:

Making Read Alouds an Everyday Part of Your Homeschool

So, how do you incorporate reading out loud into your homeschool routine?

●      Start small. Take it one simple step at a time. Start by picking a book you will enjoy.

●      Don’t expect an hour of attention, even from your older children.

●      Quite hands don’t need to be still hands. Your kids may need to keep their hands busy in order to keep their ears open. Have a sketchbook where for kiddos to draw what you’re reading about. This allows them the freedom to engage with the story and encourages them to build their narration skills as they listen for little details they can add to their picture.

●      Your read-aloud doesn’t have to be “age-appropriate.” Read a book that is above your child’s reading or comprehension level. Reading aloud is a time to expand your child’s capacity for critical thought. It is a time to bring a big world into your living room and engage them in dialogue about possibly “tricky” subjects. Having books that stretch them to pay attention, listen carefully, and consider what they hear carefully is an important lesson for young learners.

So, if I can encourage you today to raise readers, start reading out loud with your kids. Make it a daily part of your homeschool (even if it is the only thing you accomplish on the days that go off the rails). Start with living literature, classic stories that bring the world and the human experience to life. Engage in adventures with your children through stories that challenge and shape us.

“… they risked everything they loved, and maybe even their own lives, for the true magic. It’s our books. Our language, our culture, and our identities are inscribed in every word. As long as we have our books, we cannot be crushed or forgotten. Because of our books, we cannot be erased from our own history.” Words on Fire, Jennifer A. Nielsen

  • Do plan time for family chores
  • Do plan time for meal prep – mega cooking and FREEZE or can
  • Utilize cooking in your schedule –

 

3. Think through things once and forget it!

Just like the crock pot recipe commercials would say the set it and forget it – the same thing with your planning.

  1. School Schedule. Times!
    1. Break fail – after lunch very hard to get back to work

  • Tests and Progress
  1. Go out bag. Put in all the things you will need. Pick it up and go. If you have older kids, put a laminated card on the outside, and someone can double-check the bag to ensure nothing was out or replaced. (Tell forgetting diaper bag – had the baby!)
    1. One for field trips
    2. One for the park
    3. One for church
  2. Chore chart
  3. Meals
  4. Laundry Day

Special Replay: Pneumonia and How Homeopathy Can Help

Join Sue Meyer in this podcast as she shares about homeopathy for pneumonia. #homeopathy #pneumonia #naturalremedies #alternativemedicinePneumonia is an infection in the lungs. The infection can be in a small area or large area of one lung or in both lungs.

Also, you can have it and not know it. This is called “walking pneumonia.” If your pneumonia is caused by a bacteria, virus, or fungus, you can spread it to someone else.

If it is caused by having been chilled or wet then chilled etc., it is not contagious.

What happens is that infection causes the air sacs of the lungs ( “alveoli” [alvuli]) to fill up with fluid or pus. The infection stifles the flow of oxygen through the cells of the Lungs and makes it hard to breathe in enough oxygen to reach your bloodstream.

Anyone can get this lung infection.

Infants younger than age 2 and people over age 65 have the highest odds. Their immune systems might not be strong enough to fight it.

Infarction: is the obstruction of the blood supply to an organ or region of tissue, typically by a

Thrombus – a blood clot formed in situ within the vascular system of the body and impeding blood flow.) or
Embolus – a blood clot, air bubble, piece of fatty deposit, or other object that has been carried in the bloodstream to lodge in a vessel and cause an embolism),  causing local death of the tissue.

Symptoms vary only but a little. There is usually a fever, but may not come on right away.

As the infection takes hold of the lungs, there are usually chills as the fever comes on, Chest pain, and trouble breathing.

There may be a cough, but not always.

Small children or infants will have what is referred to as “THUMPING” breaths. Where a normal breath of air intake will give rise to the chest cavity, Thumping, causes the stomach area to work to suck in air for the lungs that are too inflamed to take in the air on there own. The thumping, is an involuntary action that the body make to create it’s own suction pump, so to speak.
