For Our Young Mom Friends!
When I read Jessica Fenon’s post today about the struggles of being a mom of young children, I remembered so many days that I felt the same way and I wanted to give all those moms a hug and tell them it’s going to get easier. Really, it will!
We’ve been there. We’re the parents of eight children, six boys (three grown!) and two girls and the authors of Raising Real Men: Surviving, Teaching, and Enjoying Boys and My Beloved and My Friend: How to be Married to your Best Friend Without Changing Spouses.
We’d like to invite you to download two workshops I gave for moms just like you – in the trenches, feeling overwhelmed, needing some encouragement. Just scroll down and sign up for our newsletter and they’re a gift from us to you!
Homeschooled From the Beginning
A Favorite for Parents of Preschoolers. You’ve made the decision–your child will be homeschooled from Day One. Good for you! But should you start at a young age? Is it wise to even try? How do you know when to get started and what to do first? Melanie Young has raised precocious readers and late bloomers, but every one of them has benefited from being homeschooled from the beginning. This session can give you a new perspective on how to relax and introduce your little ones to the joy of learning in a gentle and realistic way.
Homeschooling a Houseful
Sometimes homeschooling feels like one of those plate-spinning acts and you wonder how in the world you are going to meet everyone’s needs. The baby needs to be changed, the toddler is playing in the toilet, your high schooler is impatiently waiting for you to help with his biology experiment, and two other children say, “I can’t do anything else without you, Mom.” Melanie Young, mother of eight (ages 19 to infant), shares encouragement and ideas for how to keep all of those plates spinning at once without your life spinning out of control. Learn how to raise independent learners, how to keep the household moving, and how to make sure the little ones get enough attention.
