Parenting and Homeschooling Beyond the Rules
Like you, we began our homeschool journey not knowing what to do or where we would end up. I created rules, set limits, and established boundaries, but I learned valuable lessons when things didn’t go as planned. God was at work and I needed to adjust my plans for each child. We soon learned God would use our homeschool journey to change our family legacy forever.
Join me as I share lessons learned along the way and how God will help you teach and train your children while building a closer family as you embrace your homeschool journey. My desire is that you experience the freedom you have to parent and homeschool beyond the rules and to see your children as a masterpiece in the making.
Remaining Steadfast During High School
It’s often hard to stay the course during the high school years. Everything is changing: the rules, the requirements, and the relationship. Your teen is changing. The rules aren’t working like they once did. So why is staying the course through the teen years the most critical and crucial years of your homeschooling journey? Kids need you to be the steady force in their life. When you understand how to navigate the teen years they can be the most rewarding years of your parenting journey.

Finding “FUN” in Dysfunction
Once regarded as a fringe group of parents trying to shelter their children from society, homeschooling has become the fastest growing educational model in the country. Peer bullying, classroom chaos, outdated learning environments, and online opportunities are making leadership and families reimagine the possibilities of homeschooling. Veteran homeschool mother of five and leader addresses the long term benefits of staying the course, offers encouragement wrapped in humor from her 32 years of parenting, and uses real-life stories as she paints pictures of possibilities for your homeschool success.
Rules Minus Relationship Create Rebellion
Have you made a list of rules only to get discouraged when your teen doesn’t follow them? Do you feel your attempts to create close relationships feels one-sided? Rest assured mom; you aren’t alone. While every family needs rules, limits, and boundaries to help protect your child and keep order, they cannot come at the expense of your relationship. It’s not the rules that cause our child to rebel; often something is missing. Connie Albers, the mother of five adult children, shares how to create rules, build a relationship, and reduce rebellion.
Teach Kids How to Create a Positive Social Footprint
If you are like most parents, you are concerned about what your kids might post online. Social media is a powerful platform that isn’t going away. While more and more kids are seeking relationships online, you can teach them how to create a positive profile that helps influences the next generation. Connie Albers educates kids and parents how to use social media as a tool for the Kingdom, to create a positive social profile that colleges and employers desire, and to promote causes they are passionate about. If you want to learn from a mother who has successfully navigated her five children through the social media maze this presentation is for you.
