How Do I Deal With Teenage Rebellion?

How Do I Deal With Teenage Rebellion?
The words "teenage" and "rebellion" may seem like they go hand in hand, but it hasn't always been that way. In the past, getting older meant a child was becoming an adult. Ask yourself a question about any behavior that you have been calling "rebellion." Is this behavior simply your child becoming an adult? Sometimes what we label as rebellion may simply be our child making decisions for themselves. How do I Deal with Teenage Rebellion? One thing that may...

5 Ideas for Moms Raising Teen Boys

5 Ideas for Moms Raising Teen Boys
We interrupt this program...Hi everyone....Matt here.  One of Lee's Facebook friends asked whether I had any tips for mom's raising teen boys.  Although I've never been a mom, I have raised teen boys.  With that obvious shortcoming, I humbly offer the following 5 ideas: Be aware of the dynamic going on.  Your son is changing from dependence to leadership.  He is learning to lead a family both by watching his dad, but also by "practicing" on...

So what if their response to the example in #4 is to simply NOT do the work? and they have no reaction to the consequence?

Homeschool Lessons from Nature: Feelings are like Molehills!

Homeschool Lessons from Nature: Bluejays are Like Boys
Blue jays are like teenage boys.  I was watching some gorgeous Blue Jays in my backyard.  They are remarkably blue, and fairly large birds about the size of crows.  Three of them were making a lot of noise together, when suddenly one of the birds started acting funny.  Flapping his wings widely, he looked like he was hurt.  He started making loud noises, and opening is mouth wide, like he was gagging.  Poor bird! The other...
