November 2018 Homeschool Alliance: How to Homeschool so Kids Will Listen
It’s the age old homeschool dilemma: how do I get my kids to do what I need them to do and to care about what I think they should care about?

Join us this month as we get “back to basics” with a parenting classic: How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish.
Solving the dilemma starts with helping our kids deal with their feelings. As Faber and Mazlish so aptly put it—when kids feel right, they behave right. Yet “helping our kids deal with their feelings” is not always as simple as it sounds. At its heart, it requires that we accept all their feelings, even the ones that make us angry or anxious. Yikes!
We’ll dive deep into how to navigate the inherent conflict of needs that exists between us as parents and those endearing yet oh-so-frustrating young people we care about so deeply and passionately. Along the way we’ll discover the five skills to engage cooperation and the attitude that helps children thrive (and what attitude defeats them!).
Have a particularly sticky problem you are struggling with? Join now to get a chance to submit your cooperation bugaboos for Julie, Stephanie and Jeanne to address in our monthly webinar.
