Every year I post our curriculum choices for our homeschooled kids ages preschool through high school.  

This year, I'm starting something new but posting an end of year wrap up of how each curriculum worked with our late family of dyslexic kids.

If you are interested in how a large family of mostly dyslexic learners homeschools, you may be interested in our final homeschool assessment.

Some thoughts from one of the 'older women'.
I sat up in bed tapping out a text to my young adult daughter. She was late, again, and despite all reason, I was worried.

If you are the parent of a strong-willed child, let me first reassure you that strong-willed kids are born that way.  It is NOT your fault that your child sincerely believes that the world revolves around him (or her).

Strong-willed kids are often natural born leaders.  They are wired with an extra dose of confidence and vision.  Unfortunately for parents, these traits, combined with their still underdeveloped frontal lobes, lack of wisdom and experience, can create a kind of perfect storm in the home.

Motivating the strong-willed student is about balancing letting him lead with developing the character, mainly patience, to persevere through hardships with grace.

Having the right tools makes feeding a crowd that much easier.

Here are my top 10 tools for the large family kitchen.  
I enjoy cooking. Really, I do. It's just that with 8 kids, it can feel like I'm preparing food all. the. time.

The frequent feeding of large numbers of people can get a mom down. Why is that someone is always hungry?!

Be encouraged, however, that the very act of sitting down to eat together has a more profound effect than just filling stomachs.

Kids with dyslexia can also struggle with math, known as dyscalculia.

With the right teaching methods, kids with dyscalculia can have success with math.

#dyslexia #homeschool
As with dyslexia, discalculia can be confusing because these same kids are excelling in other classes - there is no intelligence deficit and therefore no obvious reason for these difficulties with math.

A much needed post on everything you need to know to get started homeschooling your child with dyslexia.   #homeschool   #dyslexia  
If you are considering homeschooling your kids with dyslexia, you are probably wondering two things: Am I capable of homeschooling my child with dyslexia? How on earth do I get started?

Sometimes you have to give up what is good in order to choose what is best.
Nurturing strong marriages and strong families takes time.

I don’t know about you but as a busy homeschooling mom, finding the time to go to appointments can be difficult.  

Is it just me or do weekday excursions throw your schedule off and make getting school, and household needs impossible to accomplish?

The idea of an online speech therapy was music to my ears!

Longing for some peace and quiet in your #homeschool?  

Consider starting a daily quiet time routine.

Here's how!
I love being a mom. However, I am greatly outnumbered and if I don't establish some boundaries with my kids I will quickly find myself in burnout state.

Often times in a large family homeschool, and especially when there are kids who struggle with learning, finding time to study the arts is difficult and takes a back seat to other more basic subjects.  I lived in that place of imbalance for a long time until I recently realized that even if our kids are ’behind’ in the language arts, their upper level thinking skills need to be exercised.
