Homeschoolers spend a lot of time planning curriculum, but don’t necessarily have a parenting plan.
Because I was a psychologist before I became a mom, I thought I had all the answers. Wrong! How I wish I had had a mentor like Dr. Ruth Ann Brinkmann. She is an educational psychologist, but more importantly, she’s a godly mother and grandmother with years of experience.
I loved chatting with her and getting her advice for:
- coming to agreements on parenting with your spouse
- changing your child’s unwanted behavior
- understanding God’s unique design for your child and more!
The show goes live at 4:00 p.m. Central time today (10/22/13). I love listening to podcasts via the podcasts app while I get ready in the morning or at the gym. Listening while cooking and cleaning is a great idea, too.
You’ll love Dr. Brinkmann’s book, A Walk through Parenting. It’s a guide to understanding and parenting your child with a form for creating a personal parenting plan for each child.
