Making the Transition from Parent to Homeschool Teacher

Making the Transition from Parent to Homeschool Teacher

Parents often tell me, "I'd love to homeschool my kids, but I don't think I'm qualified." Other parents are intrigued by homeschooling, but couldn't possibly imagine themselves as both parent and teacher.

Teaching Your Child About Income Taxes

Piggybank on It

No matter how young your child is, she may already be a taxpayer. Income taxes are dependent on income, not age. Even though you might do all the mechanics—completing the return, writing out the checks, and filing—your child is still the taxpayer.

Family Planning: Timing Is Everything

In our society, we are given the illusion of control about many things. We can preprogram our coffee makers to have fresh coffee in the morning, watch close to 100 cable channels on TV 24 hours a day, and zap frozen food in the microwave for a 3-minute dinner. We tend to assume that we can apply this control to everything in our lives.

Smart Talk: Six Ways to Speak to Our Kids

Encouraging

This excerpt is from How To Say It to Your Kids by Dr. Paul Coleman.

The second "E" in TENDER stands for Encouraging (which also includes praising and reassuring). A common mistake parents make is that they infrequently praise good behavior and are quick to criticize bad behavior. Criticizing bad behavior is not helpful if parents don't show the child a desirable alternative. Also, many parents undermine their praise by following it with a criticism ("Yes, you stopped fighting, but only after I scolded you").

How to Handle an Attention-Seeking Child

Attention Seeking Behaviors

A 3-year-old appears happy to have a new little one in the house, but the sudden increase in temper tantrums tells a different story.

5 Easy Meals Teens Can Cook Themselves

Chicken Quesadilla

Whether he gets struck by the hunger bug at 2 a.m. or you end up in bumper to bumper traffic on the way home from work, there will be times when your teen has to fend for himself for dinner.
