Warm Up with Quick, Easy Tasks
Another good one from HBR, this time about " completion bias ." Completing tasks, however small, gives us pleasure, so we tend to do simple and sometimes meaningless tasks rather than complicated and perhaps far more meaningful tasks. So is the answer to av...

Jesus and Politics
With eight months still to go until the US election, it's a good time to take a deep breath and think about where Jesus stands in all of this. Scott Sauls has written a helpful article to help Christians get some perspective. It reads, in part: Matthew’s em...

Metaphor for the Church
Should the church operate most like a business unit, a military unit, or a family unit? Taking cues from the business world is popular these days, but look at the qualifications for elders in 1 Timothy 3. An elder "must manage his own household well." Let's...

Good perspective on reading discernment from a homeschooled kid. (I guess she's not a kid anymore.) I like how she recognizes that there are developmentally appropriate ages to be exposed to different ideas and different kinds of writing.
(Illustrated almost entirely with pictures of discerning cats) (This is a follow-up to, “How Big Is Your Child’s Bubble? Weighing the Merits of Mainstream Fiction in a Classical Education”) 1. *** “Teach and Relea...

I downloaded this free typing instructor software without a problem. My kids just got started on it, so I don't have an opinion about it yet, but since I don't know how long it will be free, I thought I'd pass the info along.
 
I don't typically post on Sunday. So, if I'm sharing a deal, you KNOW it must be good! Right now, you can get a FREE Typing Instructor program for Kids from Amazon {with promo code!}. It really works, I just downloaded one for my kids! Get the promo code here -->> http://www.frugalhomeschoolfamily.com/2013/10/06/free-typing-instructor-for-kids-program-save-13-99-limited-time/

ADHD and the Relative Age Effect
Children develop in different areas at different rates, and they can mature significantly in just a few months. Younger children are diagnosed with ADHD at much higher rates than older children in the same grade. (32% higher for children born in the month b...

Photos of a typical day and special events at the preschool I work at in Tokyo, Japan.
 
This is an album that Mrs. Ellen put together for a recent preschool info session. It will help you get an idea of what we do each day and how we celebrate special events.

We need the message of this poem in our distracted, multi-tasking day and age.

I've been reminded recently that I am the mood thermostat in my home. The attitudes of my kids adjust to mine. That's a great responsibility.

Thanks I needed to be reminded of this myself, getting back to school changes the entire dynamics of the household and thus the mood! :)

Homemade Risk Game = Instant Geography Lesson
We have a closet-full of board games, but Risk isn't one of them. No problem. My son, who had played once at a friend's house, made his own Risk game with some army guys and an atlas, then got his little brother involved. Ins...
