One of the absolute greatest gifts we can give our children is a schedule.

gives us the freedom to have fun and to accomplish great things. You will
walk away from this workshop with wonderful ideas to implement into your
family schedule.

The Ethical Child is the Happy Child

Speaker: Monica Irvine
We have so many children walking around the world today, unhappy, because they are missing the skills needed to feel good about themselves, which is the #1 reason for unhappiness. Parents, we’ve got to teach correct principles, model correct behavior, outline consequences for not meeting
expectations, and then we have to allow our children to choose. This is how
they become wise decision makers. But, we as parents have to know that we
have done our part. Come and see if there’s something else that could help
your children reach their divine potential. We will discuss specific skills that children of all ages can learn to help them find the joy in leading an ethical life.

Kim Bedingfield

Version 2

Kim Bedingfield lives in Central Georgia with her husband where she homeschools her five children. Prior to her work as a homeschool mother, she received her BS in Education from University of Georgia and her MS degree in Speech Language Pathology from Vanderbilt University. Her background in child and language development has led her to investigate the strengths and weaknesses of many popular classical homeschool curriculums. Her goal in homeschooling and as a Veritas Press community director is to employ the classical method while engaging children with different learning styles, strengths and weaknesses. She has discovered that the many options offered by Veritas Press provide a rigorous academic experience that enables students to interact in the humanistic culture of our times while maintaining a solid Biblical foundation and worldview.
