Things Mentioned on This Week's Podcast
- Managers of Their Homes – this book gives very practical, step-by-step instructions for creating routine. It's geared toward homeschooling families but is applicable to all. It's been my go-to for over a decade of planning family routines.
- Parenting with Love and Logic – this book gives great “on the ground” advice on keeping your emotions out parenting and raising a resilient, successful kid. If you have teens, get the teen edition, too. Highly recommended!
