In this video, mom of seven (ages 18 through 33) and author of seventy curriculum books and dozens of workshops, Donna Reish gives parents five surefire tips for avoiding the Terrible Two’s: (1) Discern between wants and needs prior to the twenty-four month mark; (2) Mean what you say (“Don’t say no unless you’ll go”); (3) Don’t sweat the small stuff—discerning between truly bad behaviors (behavior absolutes) and childishness; (4) Provide consistency; and (5) Tell, don’t ask (unless it’s okay if the child disobeys or doesn’t listen).

Welcome to another Wondering Wednesday blog post! I was recently asked to share my top scheduling and organizing tips with a group of homeschooling moms. I tried to be clever and create 32 Tips From 32 Years of Homeschooling….and it quickly turned into like fifty. And I, of course, did not have time for fifty (or even thirty-two!).
But here it is….let me know what homeschooling, parenting, language arts, writing, Plexus, and marriage questions you have….I’ll make you a *short* Wondering Wednesday video or podcast. 🙂
Welcome to another Wondering Wednesday video episode!
This is a special episode as the question came from a young mama who was a student of mine several years ago in language arts and writing classes. When I get a parenting or homeschooling question from a former student, I run, not walk, to get it answered for them. It brings me such joy to have helped these students with language arts, writing, speech, or debate—and now to help them with parenting.
Welcome to another episode of Wondering Wednesday, a video or audio post in which I answer questions submitted to me by readers!
In this Wondering Wednesday video, Donna Reish, author of seventy curriculum books totaling over forty thousand pages, answers a mom’s questions about helping her son who is struggling with reading. Donna talks about readiness, creating a learning environment, combining language arts/grammar studies with reading studies, the importance of immersion in the reading process, using learning styles in teaching reading, and much more.
