Have you seen our booklet/ebook on How to Make Optimal Homeschooling To Do Charts ? We’ve heard from numerous mothers who implemented it. They reported that the very NEXT DAY their homes went from chaos to order and all SMILES!!! One was a brilliant woman Ph.D. doctor attempting to educate her children at home and it was chaos. She thought her kids would LOVE this short and sweet route, and sure enough, they DID. Another mom reported that they were all done with homeschool by 11 o’clock in the morning and she is sooooo happy!
A third mom wrote that her family has tried using rigid schedules 100 times and felt that they were failures because the schedule NEVER worked. Her husband would get upset that the family didn’t stick to it. With many young children, something ALWAYS changes the schedule EVERYDAY. She was encouraged to read about a more flexible approach. Now, when people visit and want to know what she is teaching the children, she can show them their charts. She is glad to have the children policing themselves—something that brings peace to the home.
When children are occupied with the completion of their own progressive mini-tasks, they don’t have time to hit, scratch, bite! Read the article, it is loaded with all sorts of tips to make your day go smoother.
