I'm super excited to share with you the details about a free Google hangout I'm co-hosting with the awesome +Adina Soclof  (from ParentingSimply.com)!

We're going to be talking all about the sticky subject of KIDS & MONEY.

The hangout will be on Wednesday, February 19th at 9 p.m. EST.

You can follow this link to RSVP for the event - and I hope you will do so! 

Adina & I spent an hour brainstorming last night and we are both so excited to share our thoughts with you on lots of issues related to kids & money, like:
*learning how to say "no" to your child (with kindness and empathy)
*teaching your children to have a healthy attitude about money
*preventing that "keeping up with the Joneses" mentality from setting in -- especially with adolescents and teenagers
* raising "money-smart" children
*and learning to appreciate what you have -- a great lessons for people of any age!

We'll also be taking your questions live during the hangout - but if you'd rather ask something anonymously, feel free to email me or PM me ahead of time.

This year we started using Google Calendar to organize our #homeschool lesson plans.

All About Spelling is a fantastic curriculum for #homeschool parents and for parents who #afterschool

If your children struggle with spelling (or reading), I highly recommend this program. Read all about what makes AAS different. (Hint: It's what they learn. And HOW they learn.)
