Did you just finish Workshop #1?
Here's a quick guide to my blog that coincides with the workshop sheet suggestions for getting started and implementing Workshop #1 principles into your home.
I've included posts of how it's looked in my own--both the flops and the successes

Remember the 3 Core Elements

Chose 1 basic issue per child (academic or behaviour) and simply start mediating there.

Read Your handouts and learn more about how the brain learns

ASK,ASK,ASK. Ask process questions--find out what they are thinking?

Wait a l-o-o-o-n-g time for your child to answer(5 seconds or more) patiently and pleasantly

Do the Human Figure drawing regularly, weekly or bi-weekly--discuss it with your child

Play logic/strategy games, do puzzles, brain benders with your children often

Talk about your history/ethnic background and include family traditions. This helps your child know who they are and whose they are and facilitates a sense of belonging.

Appreciate your children's differences. Include different activities.

Discuss the reasons behind activity/behaviours--the underlying theme, pattern, principles

Focus on steps forward NOT failures-no sarcasm or anger

Well, you are here, thanks for stopping in. Please leave me a comment and let me know if I'm helpful!
