Do you have any favorites to add?
1. Organizing is Key!
The kids see their progress and are motivated—such a wonderful thing. Then every night I set them up again for the next day. Google ‘Susan Patrick Workbox system’ for all the info, and tailor it to your needs. Praise God!
If you notice that it seems to be happening a lot, stop and take a look at what is causing you to get off track and either eliminate the cause (TV, computer games, phone, etc.) or discuss it with your children (kids don’t like getting behind in their work any better than we do) and come up with a creative solution. I have found that when I include my children in these types of decisions it is a lot easier for us to stick with it.
2. Keeping it Holy
As the day progresses, plenty of fresh air and exercise is a necessity. When gathering around the table for the evening meal—the students are given, each in turn, an opportunity to share what they have learned with Dad!!
3. Staying Focused
4. Family Time!
This works really well for those kids who are tough to motivate.
