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!
  • Teaching Self Government helps you define a vision for your family and put in place systems and and standards that really work. A perfect compliment to Love and Logic.
