I’ll be quite honest, the first 2 weeks of homeschooling was a pieced together...experiment.
Now, it's a whole different story. From 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. there is no fun screen time unless it's to complete online assignments.
Mr. C taught him a calm down strategy affectionately called “Hot Cookies.” When Tre is in the height of a nervous moment he is to pretend he just took a pan of hot cookies out of the oven, and with his palms facing up and eyes closed, he is supposed to blow to ‘cool’ the imaginary cookies. Try it!
Who really knows where the motivation came from for Tre to revisit his inquiry about sex. Wherever it came from, I want him to remember he can ALWAYS talk to his Dad and I about anything. I want us to be the first people he comes to with questions no matter how sensitive they are.
Moms let's do better and focus on what's really important- raising healthy, secure, confident children who are ready to go out and make positive contributions to the world. Leave the number of children your fellow Mom has alone. The end.
