Soft Star Shoes - High quality, handcrafted shoes
By Jennifer Nairne

My son rarely walks. He runs. Everywhere. Even when I ask him to walk, he does a slow-motion run instead. He also ends up running head first, quite literally, into a world of hard, unforgiving surfaces. Being barefoot and running amok through the house, he almost seems to be performing a ballet in avoiding horrific crashes every few minutes. But once outside with shoes on, he transformed into a clumsy, crashing, accident waiting to happen. And rather than protecting his feet, shoes seem to only encourage him to stumble more frequently. I blamed his lack of coordination on motor skill development and believed that he would eventually grow into his oversized feet and hands, much like a puppy. My "puppy" is now 5 and now I am convinced the problem was his shoes.

Attention Deficit Disorder, and the Fallacy of Waiting for Motivation
By Bonnie Mincu, MA, MBA, Senior Certified ADHD Coach

Most Attention Deficit Disorder Adults know that our brain-wiring doesn't respond to what we 'should' do. Unless we're really interested in a task, we have a pretty hard time staying focused on it for any great length of time.

Often we require the stimulus of a looming deadline, or last-minute crisis, to goad us into action. As kids, we probably put off our homework until the last minute because -- until the adrenaline of panic set it -- we weren't able to focus on it.

But what do we do to get motivated when there is no deadline?

I often find myself in conversations with ADD / ADHD Adults who report the strong influence of their mood on their decisions to complete stages in their plans. It's quite understandable to feel un-motivated after your proposal falls on deaf ears, or your manuscript is returned with a 'no thank you.'

By Eileen Healy, MA, LMFT

If you want to give your child a future filled with Successes:

  • Why is Raising Your Child’s Emotional Intelligence So Important to be part of a Homeschoolers curriculum?
  • Why is it so important to raise your child’s Emotional Intelligence?

Learning Styles - Your Blueprint for Homeschool LearningSuccess -
By LearningSuccess™ Experts Mariaemma Willis & Victoria Kindle Hodson

Whether you’re a homeschooling veteran, a new start, or just thinking about taking the plunge into homeschooling, finding out your child’s learning style will show you the route that you need to take to ensure your child’s success!

One mother we met at a conference assessed her children's learning styles and came back the following year to tell us, "This has been the best year ever! I gave my kids the profiles, bought materials for their learning styles, stopped trying to make them learn the way I learn best, and it made all the difference. I wish I had known all of this sooner!"

Finding out your child’s learning style has benefits for your child and for you. This kind of information can improve: 1) your child’s chances for success, 2) your ability to communicate with your child, 3) your ability to teach effectively, and 4) your chances of raising a competent, responsible, independent, creative adult.
