Are You Training Your Child To Complain?

Do you find yourself second guessing the amount of work you assigned your child based on their moaning and groaning? You know your child’s capabilities and have given out the assignments. As time passes your student is taking a long time and starts appeals of, “It’s too much writing and my hand hurts! All my assignments are long today, can you shorten some? I’ll never get this done in time.”

There are times to reevaluate, but do not let your child regularly manipulate you into changing your mind about the day’s lesson plan. If it works once, they’ll try again and a bad habit of complaining has started.

Be encouraged, if this has already started as a pattern in your homeschool you have the power to turn it around. Stand firm for a few days and your children will come to know that you have a NO WHINING HOMESCHOOL ZONE!

Speaker/Affiliation: Nancy Riddle/Him Visible

Date and Time: Friday, July 30th, 2010, 12:30 PM

Description: This workshop will examine some of the reasons why children cannot see God in nature. It shares Nancy Riddle’s revelations & their impact on her discovery of God in nature. Together the workshop explores how seeing God in nature impacts a child’s life. Many of the techniques that Nancy used in her classroom are revealed. Many examples of the “double meanings” of animals & plants are discussed. Many “aha” connections will be found. You will learn how to teach a child to expand the observed relationships to other areas of life. Tips on how to utilize these principles in various science courses are given. You will be taught how to use these principles in subjects other than science. The importance of “questions” in teaching will be amplified.
