Relationship: The 4th “R”

The 4th R

Everyone says schooling is about Reading, ‘Riting and ‘Rithmetic. This year, let’s talk about the fourth ‘R’ in education:


Without a loving connection, learning leads to frustration and tears.

In January 2021, the Brave Learner Home is hosting an expert who will talk to us about how to enhance your connection to your scattered kids—the ones who can never find their matching shoes or forget what you asked them to do two minutes after you asked.

We kick off our Master Classes in 2021 with an overview of executive processing—what it is and why we should care. Executive processing requires a level of metacognition that our kids are still in the process of developing—yes, even our teens! Learn how to support that growth without damaging your relationship.

Brave Learner Home: November 2020

Playing the Long Game

How do you keep homeschooling going through the days, months, and years?

It can feel like a long slog, I know. Take courage, however. I’ve got some inspiration lined up for you from a dear friend in the trenches.

Join our community in the Brave Learner Home (our online coaching and support group for home educators) for a Master Class on sustaining your homeschool commitment. We’ve invited Leah Boden, creator of Modern Miss Mason and the Charlotte Mason Unboxed course for homeschoolers, to share with us via webinar from her lovely home in Coventry, England!

Leah will provide ten tips to help parents stay the course with peace and passion while protecting our personal well being for the long game as well.

A long-time student and practitioner of the Charlotte Mason method of education, Leah writes, speaks and podcasts about the Charlotte Mason philosophy and is passionate about helping parents find their freedom as they invest in their families. Her work includes insights into childhood, motherhood, and education.

Leah is a speaker and writer for the international Wild + Free homeschooling community, as well as a pastor alongside her husband, Dave, at their church. She and Dave have four homeschooled children.

Help Your Kids Develop Motivation

The Self-Driven Child

We are over the moon around here!

Keep reading to see why.

A couple years ago, our community studied the book The Self-Driven Child. The members were blown away by the simple, practical steps they could take to help their kids get motivated and stay motivated in learning.

Here’s a snippet to entice you:

We can only drive our kids so far. At some point, they have to take the wheel. Those who have never been allowed to make meaningful decisions until later in life are likely to flounder. The Self-Driven Child will give you the tools you need to help your child navigate life with confidence and find his or her own path.

As we thought about our fall line-up, Jeanne and I put our heads together to consider what topics would be most useful during this unusual time of COVID 19 and the changes in schooling and work patterns.

It became clear quickly that parents are especially struggling with how to motivate their kids to perform their school tasks without the usual parental nagging and haranguing.

So we asked a bold question:

Could we get this best-selling, top-dollar author to come speak to the Brave Learner Home membership?

We looked at Dr. Stixrud’s fee schedule and blanched. Still, we pressed forward hoping that the appeal of our large homeschool community would be enough to persuade him to join us.

And that is exactly what happened! He said yes!

Dr. William Stixrud is excited to get to know us and we can’t wait to learn more from him.

Will you join us? I hope so. Save the date on your calendar now.
