I want to believe that we all want the best for our children, and that those who give dangerous things to kids are just misinformed. Homeopathic tablets and teething gels do ease the teething pain, but some of them are proven dangerous.
We homeschool. Yeah, we know we're not normal, and we like it. Here's what you can expect to hear if you ask me about the multitude of ways in which homeschooling makes us weird.
Moody, defiant, and uncooperative kids can quickly transform your homeschool from dream to nightmare — for all involved. How do you make it through and come out the other side?
Most babies start biting due to the teething discomfort, as it’s our reflex response to press the spot that hurts. Biting shouldn’t be the reason to quit breastfeeding, and there are ways to teach your child not to do this.
A good deal of children experience gum discomfort due to the teething process and may eat less for a while. Do not worry, the sensitivity is in most cases temporary, and your baby will be her old self in no time.
Homeschooling is a full-time job in itself, so is it possible to homeschool your kids and still work? Can you do it and come out of it feeling relatively sane and happy?
Learning styles — roughly defined as the individual ways that best enable a person to learn stuff — are a much talked-about subject in homeschool circles. What do you need to know about them to be a successful homeschooler?
"What about socialization?" has got to be the number one question homeschool skeptics ask. It's a tricky one, because the term has evolved to have two meanings — both important, and both related to your child's social needs. How do you meet those?
Homeschooled children can thrive socially — but research proving this says little to nothing about individual families, and meeting our kids' social needs ultimately boils down to personal responsibility.
Yup, homeschool families are different — but the academic, social, and lifestyle benefits of homeschooling naysayers don't talk about mean homeschool students can stand out in a good way.
