A mom I know with several children once shared that she took her oldest child, a teen son, out to lunch every Friday to "conference" with him about his school progress and to spend one-on-one time with him while participating in one of his favorite activities - eating. I took that to heart and several years later, now that my daughter is a freshman, we go out every Wednesday afternoon for a treat like smoothies, tea and a cookie, etc. at various local places - one of her favorite things to do - and we go over her planner to see where she's at so far and what she needs to do to finish the week well, talk about what things are working well and what could be better, make note of new ideas or goals, get in some simple down time, etc. I chose Wednesdays because Fridays seemed too 'final' for me, whereas pausing in the middle of the week allows us adjustment time. I spend less money on snacks than two lunches, and less calories than making a batch of cookies together, or something similar, at home but I can see how something like that could work for others. We like our weekly "student-teacher conferences" and they're working out very well.
Hello! I plan to take you with us on our journey through high school. We are only beginning 6th grade this year but knowing that you are available when 9th grade comes is a huge relief and I've told all our homeschool moms in our group about you. Since you've said that middle school is preparation for high school, I would love a planner for my daughter or myself that would get us in the mode of keeping track of the things we need to. Can you advise me on which company has the best or tell me what we should be keeping track of now that will help us later (and be great records for our BOE) THANK FOR ALL YOU DO AND GOD BLESS!!!
