So true!

Almost every conversation I have with new homeschooling parents begins with some question about pressure from others.

👉🏼 What will my mother think?

👉🏼 My sister-in-law is a teacher and doesn’t think it’s a good idea.

👉🏼 None of our friends do it this way.

And when we trace it back, usually the people with those fears have been giving into peer pressure for a long time.

Pleasing their parents with college and career choices.

Pleasing friends with life choices.

Pleasing other people with choices about their health, their lives, their relationships, their free time... everything.

If you want to teach your children to do the things in life that feel right and that light them up, then parents listen up.... THEY NEED TO SEE YOU DO THE SAME THING.

They need you to be strong enough to set boundaries. To make the right choice even if it’s the hard one. To not worry about the opinions of those who aren’t directly affected.

Want to raise independent, free-thinking adults? BE ONE! 💚

Dear moms

Sleep with your children, lay them in bed while they still want. Wrap them in soft blankets and warm covers and in your arms.

Children are only little once, when they grow up, they will look for their way and place. Hurry up because time goes by fast.

Hug them and hang on them, kiss them as many times as you can, be close enough to feel their breath and hear the little heartbeat that beats.

There is nothing more beautiful in the world than the special closeness of mother and child!

This is so true! 🙌

05/06/2021

When my daughter Natalie was three, someone I considered a friend told me I needed to "toughen her up" because she was “too sensitive” and "would have a rough life ahead.”

When my daughter and I got home, I looked into my child’s big, brown eyes that held so much promise and declared, “I will never ever ‘toughen you up.’ Mark my words. Someday, that tender heart inside you will be your greatest strength.”

It wasn’t until I was cleaning out my daughter’s backpack six years later that I received confirmation for nurturing my child's tender heart rather than trying to change it.

At the bottom of her book bag there was a speech she’d written and recited to her class before being voted class president in a mock election.

Natalie wrote:

"I would very much like to be your class president. I am hard working. I am very kind. I take care of the animals and the plants. I have self-control. I am very brave and honest. I am caring and a little curious. I am very smart and fun. I make a good leader. I care about other people. I am so exided to be one of the class presitents. Please vote for me."

I cried as I held that paper.

I cried for every child whose parents are told he is too rambunctious, too inquisitive, too loud.

I cried for child whose parents are told her head is in the clouds, that she is a daydreamer, and too much of a free spirit.

I cried for every child whose parents are told he is too small, too timid to ever make a contribution.

I cried for every child whose parents are told she is too slow, too far behind to ever measure up.
I cried for the mother who was told her child needed to be toughened up and for ever year that mother waited for the moment she would know she had done the right thing by nurturing that tender heart.

The moment was now. And there was cause for celebration. Not because I had been “right.” Oh no, there was something much more miraculous to celebrate…

In the act of protecting, nurturing, and encouraging that overly sensitive heart at age three, my child’s inherent gift had become her internal compass, guiding her toward meaningful pursuits far more fulfilling than worldly success.

My daughter is 17 now. Natalie is still kind, curious, honest, and all the things she wrote about in her speech—but she is also one of the bravest people I know. Natalie consistently seeks new experiences and unfamiliar territories with the hope of making a situation better for someone else. Natalie does not go into uncharted territories without fear, but she is able to overcome her fears because of that fiercely tender heart beating inside her chest. May she always stay true to where her beautiful heart leads.

So beautiful and so true 💕❤️♥️

When they say, "too quiet,"
I see introspection.
Don't change, thoughtful one.
You're going to bring quiet wisdom to the chaos.

When they say, "too inquisitive,"
I see problem solving.
Don't change, great thinker.
You're going to bring answers to the toughest questions.

When they say, "too energetic,"
I see vitality.
Don't change, lively one.
You're going to bring joy and laughter to desperate times.

When they say, "too sensitive,"
I see heart.
Don't change, deep feeler.
You're going to bring compassion to hurting souls.

When they say, "too anxious,"
I see caution.
Don't change, fierce protector.
You're going to bring thoughtful deliberation to tricky situations.

When they say, "too distracted,"
I see observant.
Don't change, wise Noticer.
You're going to bring attention to the most important details of life.

When I did my student teaching, I was drawn to the kids whose desks were pulled away from the rest. It was easy to see that the negative labels they were given were negatively impacting them. I decided the most important thing I could do was reframe the labels so kids could see their perceived weaknesses as strengths – and with some nurturing, those gifts could shine.

Working with these kids led me to become a special education teacher. While some might say I taught them, I would argue that they taught me – and the most important lesson being that when the world says a child needs changing, that’s our cue to look deeper and think bigger.

Perhaps when we do, we’ll see something worth protecting and nurturing.

Perhaps when we do, we’ll see a human being uniquely equipped to change the world.

If you’d like to learn more about reframing negative labels into strengths and equipping kids to overcome negative opinions and circumstances, my latest book #LiveLoveNow is a guide to becoming a relatable and trustworthy confidant for young people today. (https://amzn.to/34f0LN8)

“Reframing allows you to essentially redesign negative labels through a positive vision. By looking at your children through a positive lens, you are in better position to be their light protector and soul-builder.”

Don't Give Up on Your Late Bloomers - Practical Homeschooling Magazine

Perseverance and patience are important when learning a topic. This applies to both teacher and student. When a late bloomer is learning a topic that he or she does not really get, it is easy to give up in hopelessness. Such students will never get the "click" feeling unless they push through the "I can't do this" part of learning a subject

Don't Give Up on Your Late Bloomers - Practical Homeschooling Magazine Growing up is hard for everyone, but especially hard for "late bloomers." They might be called slow or stupid, but the truth is simply that their brains take a little longer to warm up.

Somehow, without formal training or curriculum, my parents taught me what I needed to know for school.

[10/15/20]   An Absolute Truth!! 👏🤩
A wonderful realization will be the day you realize that you are unique in all the world. There is nothing that is an accident. You are a special combination for a purpose-and don't let them tell you otherwise, even if they tell you that purpose is an illusion. (Live an illusion if you have to). You are that combination so that you can do what is essential for you to do. Don't ever believe that you have nothing to contribute. The world is an incredible unfulfilled tapestry. And only you can fulfill that tiny space that is yours.
