How to Homeschool in the Midst of the Hard Things Resources
Rachael' book, How Many Times Do I Have to Tell You?: What God wants us to hear when we talk to our kids is an amazing resources for our readers who struggle with "that child."
“I remember the day you were born.”
“Turn down the music!”
“This is going to hurt me more than it’s going to hurt you.”
“Hold my hand.”
You’ve probably said these things to your kids, but have you listened to what you’re saying? In fact, your heavenly Father wants to tell you many of these same things. Rachael Carman knows how noisy it can be when you’re raising children—she has seven! But this lovely devotional book will help you to hear God’s still, small voice amid the chaos of carpools, cut fingers, and carpet crawlers. You’ll learn how to recognize God’s instructions for you, even as you seek to follow His example as a parent.
"I needed something more in my quest for an organized homeschool life. I wanted a system for organizing my time and my homeschool. I Needed A Tool To Simplify My Life — Not Add To The Overwhelm. Can you relate? I had used many task and goal-based planners and I wanted a planner that incorporated everything I loved about them in one place."
This book, Parenting Chaos: Practical Support and Encouragement for Parents of Explosive Children, written by Shawna Wingert is perfect for this series.
"This labor of love and, if I am honest, desperation, explores the reasons our children meltdown and most importantly, how best to help them. I am as painfully open as possible, while still respecting and protecting the privacy of my sweet boys."
After 30 years of parenting five children and 20 years of working with teens, Connie Albers has witnessed the negative impact of well-intentioned but misguided parenting styles, all focused on managing teens rather than guiding them. But through learning to focus on the hearts of your teens, you can avoid those pitfalls and build relationships that last beyond the transition years as you intentionally learn about, connect with, and listen to your teens.
