It’s a well-known adage in the business world that you are hired for your hard skills and fired for your soft skills. It might be a well-known adage, but what are hard and soft skills?

  • Hard skills, such as welding or heart surgery, are easily measurable and quantifiable.
  • Soft skills are the personal attributes that enable someone to interact effectively, harmoniously, and productively with other people.

Help for Kids Who Are Bored with Homeschooling

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

What to do when your kids are bored with homeschooling | Life Skills 101 Podcast with Lisa NehringAre you facing the challenge of a child who seems uninterested in their homeschooling journey? Do you hear complaints of, “I’m bored. This is boring!”  You’re not alone. Many parents encounter this hurdle, but with the right strategies, you can turn this around. Inspired by insights from the podcast “Goldilocks and the Teen Years,” let’s explore how you can reignite your child’s passion for learning.

1. Finding the Spark: Motivating Your Homeschooler Beyond Being Bored

Firstly, understand that motivation is key. Every child has unique interests and learning styles, and tapping into these can make a world of difference. Try incorporating diverse teaching methods – maybe your child thrives on visual aids, or perhaps they’re more hands-on learners. Remember, the goal is to make learning engaging and fun. Celebrate their achievements, no matter how small, and set realistic goals together. This not only motivates but also gives them a sense of accomplishment.

2. Setting Realistic Expectations forBored Teens

It’s important to remember that age matters. What works for a teenager might not be suitable for a younger child. Tailor your curriculum and teaching style to match your child’s age and developmental stage. This doesn’t mean lowering standards, but rather aligning them with your child’s capabilities. Be patient and be prepared to adjust your approach as they grow and their interests evolve.

3. The Goldilocks Principle: Just Right Learning

This principle, as discussed in “Goldilocks and the Teen Years,” is about finding the ‘just right’ challenge for your child. Not too easy, not too hard, but just enough to stretch their abilities without overwhelming them. It’s about creating a learning environment that’s neither overly structured nor too lax, but perfectly suited to your child’s individual needs.

You’ve Got This

Every homeschooling journey is unique and comes with its own set of challenges. Remember, it’s okay to seek help and advice. Stay flexible, stay patient, and most importantly, stay connected with your child’s learning needs and interests. Together, you can overcome the hurdle of boredom and create a fulfilling and enjoyable homeschooling experience.

Helping Our Kids Have Resiliency with Lisa Nehring

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

Teaching Our Kids to Have Resiliency Helping Our Kids Have Resiliency

“We’re not just raising kids, we’re raising resilient adults. We’re raising spiritual beings.”

Join Lisa Nehring on the Ultimate Homeschool Radio Show in celebration of our 10th Birthday Celebration!

➡️Episode Sponsored by the 10th Birthday Celebration Sponsors, CTC Math & More on the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network ✔️ out the $350 giveaway, too!

In a world where people easily crumble like delicate snowflakes and take offense at the drop of a hat, it’s high time we pondered this vital question: Are our children truly growing in resiliency?

Are they emerging as fearless warriors, fortified with unyielding character and an indomitable spirit? Let me tell you, this remarkable gift of resiliency will serve as their secret weapon in navigating an increasingly secular world.

So join me on this resilience adventure as we explore the importance of resilience and why it’s high time we raise a generation of tenacious individuals who can conquer any challenge that comes their way. Trust me, it’ll be one heck of a ride.

Get Intentional!

In her excellent book, appropriately titled, Grit, Angela Duckworth takes on the task of developing the idea of resilience in our children. She advocates for making resilience development a part of kids’ life skills curriculum.

I couldn’t agree more. Our kids need resilience. It’s what allows them to go out and compete, take risks, fail, and try again.

Key Ingredients for Developing Resilience

Practice– Practice is what lets us learn as we go. To practice and develop well, we must get assessments and feedback.
Purpose– Resilience is not always about pursuing those things that we might have a natural inclination toward. Students should consider pursuing something that they can develop an interest in over the long term.
Hope– This is tied to trying and failing. Failure is a huge part of developing resilience. We need to teach our kids that success does not come without failure. Winners keep pursuing goals despite setbacks.
Time– We need to set aside time to practice with deliberation, fail, and succeed.
Create Some Resilience Goals

Angela Duckworth has some practical recommendations for bestowing the remarkable gift of resilience to your children:

Choose something that requires deliberate daily practice.
Commit to doing this activity for 2 years.
Finish what you’ve started for a specified interval.

Rethinking Homeschooling: A Functional Approach to the Homeschool Room

In a recent talk about homeschooling, the focus shifted to the idea of a “Homeschool Room.” The talk challenged the need for a set classroom space.

One family’s experience stood out. They didn’t prioritize a traditional room but rather focused on what worked best for their kids. Their setup was wherever the kids felt comfortable to learn—bed, porch, or the dining table.

They avoided clutter by using online resources instead of paper books.

They organized borrowed books to avoid misplacing them. The focus was on making things practical and adaptable.

Understanding their kids’ unique learning styles was crucial.

They realized not all kids learn well by sitting still, so they embraced movement-based learning. They mixed exercises like burpees or jumping jacks with memorization techniques, which surprisingly worked well.

Their story suggested that a “Pinterest-worthy” Homeschool Room isn’t necessary. A beautiful but unused space is merely for show, not for learning.

The takeaway was simple: homeschooling isn’t about a specific homeschool room but about being flexible and understanding what’s best for each child’s learning.

The talk concluded with advice for new homeschooling families: don’t feel pressured to recreate a school-like environment at home. Embrace diverse learning spaces and styles; it’s often better for a child’s education.

Ultimately, it’s not about the room; it’s about the approach and the individual needs of the children that truly matter.

A Production of the Ultimate Homeschool Podcast Network.

In this week's episode of Life Skills 101 podcast, Andrew Pudewa of IEW fame offers several tips to encourage this skill in crazy times.SPECIAL REPLAY | While Writing isn’t exactly a soft skill, it is an invaluable hard skill that makes a feedback loop with the soft skills. Andrew Pudewa of IEW fame offers several tips to encourage this skill in crazy homeschooling times.

  • The top two things needed for your kids are; Language Skills (liberal arts), and Math skills (Logic/Stem/Arithmetic)
    • Choose what is interesting, but also needed.
  • Teach your kids how to memorize
    • Especially poetry, this will teach them diction, and heavily ingrain a love for language and reading, which in turn will give them a love for learning.
  • The 4 deadly errors of teaching writing:
    • Over correction
    • With holding help- if your child asks for it when writing, they probably need it.
    • Unclear Assignments- Your child cannot follow instructions they don’t understand. Be clear.
    • Over expectation- set a high bar, but be willing to give grace for learners.
