Discipline isn’t just giving our children consequences, it’s also training them in the skills of decision-making, self-control, and responsibility. The good news is that we can do all of the above with success and a big dose of love!
What comes to mind when you think about the word “discipline”?
Depending on where you are in your parenting journey, you might think about the consequences you would dole out to a naughty little one. Or, you might think along the lines of training a child to be disciplined with chores or schoolwork. Both of these are important training tasks that we do as parents!
As homeschooling parents, we spend a lot of time with our children. We are certainly blessed to see discipline needs right away and, hopefully, set a plan in action quickly. But, being so close to the “situation” 24/7 can sometimes cloud our thinking and leave us frustrated with no idea of where to even begin with a meaningful plan.
Just like it’s easy for our children to get stuck in bad habits, it’s easy for us as parents, too. Before you know it, there is a stronghold of bad behavior and/or undisciplined living. That can lead to tears, fights, messy houses, or unfinished schoolwork…and one or two overwhelmed parents.
You CAN parent without overwhelm AND discipline from a place of love that reaches into the heart of the matter. It’s in the heart where real change happens.
We’re going to tackle discipline from a bunch of different angles during this masterclass. Of course, we’ll talk about discipline as it relates to disobedience and will cover things like:
- keeping yourself under control during difficult situations,
- how to handle discipline quickly and effectively,
- disciplining with love,
- figuring out which consequences match the crime, and
- what to do on the front end so that you aren’t continually dealing with the same issues.
We’ll also talk about the importance of a disciplined life and will cover things like:
- creating at least some semblance of a plan and schedule,
- how productivity builds upon itself,
- how consistency breeds good habits that are hard to break,
- how to get everyone on board with the plan, and
- what you can realistically expect from various age levels.
As usual, this masterclass with Cindy will be extremely practical. You will leave the class with plenty of ideas to use immediately and a bunch to tuck in your back pocket for later. There will be an extensive Q&A time during the live event to ask questions about specific discipline issues, too.
Please note that Cindy is a Christian mom and will be teaching from that perspective. She has 25 years of parenting and 20 years of homeschooling under her belt. Besides having lots of experience (even with a difficult child), she also has a master’s degree in education to help her speak about various ages and stages in the development of children.
You will be able to view the class as many times as you like at your convenience. You’ll have access to a private Facebook group where you can ask questions, too!
Approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes of training and 20 minutes of Q&A time
