How to Be a Better Home Educator

How to Be a Better Home Educator

How to Be a Better Home Educator


You can become a better home educator this year and every year and build a better homeschool with tools you have around the house. You may be anxious and searching for something to make you feel secure. But some things really won't help you at all - and sometimes they actually make the situation much worse and increase feelings of incompetence. A degree in teaching will NOT make you a better home educator. Parent Partnerships will NOT make you a better home educator. School at home will NOT make you a better home educator. On the other hand, as you begin to homeschool, you will become more and more confident over time. As you shape and mold your child's behavior, they become more cooperative. And as you learn more about homeschooling, you'll start to get your sea-legs, instead of feeling weak in the knees about the task. Homeschooling WILL make you a better home educator. Continuing education WILL make you a better home educator. Investing in your vocation WILL make you a better home educator. You can become a GREAT home educator! The love you have for your child will ensure success! Learn more about how to become a great homeschooler in this article, How to Be a Better Home Educator.

Team of Experts to Help You Handle Technology Boundaries

Team of Experts to Help You Handle Technology Boundaries


This post contains affiliate links. If you click and buy I may make a few pennies, but not enough for a latte.



Team of Experts to Help You Handle Technology Boundaries


It's a new world, with changes we could not have imagined years ago. Parenting has always been challenging, but these days the hardest parts of parenting involve electronic gadgets or technology. Whether dealing with smart phones, tablets, computers, social media, or video games, parents need help figuring out how to manage this new environment.

But how, exactly?

Imagine sitting down with a team of experts and having a heart-felt and encouraging conversation with educators and counselors, along with real parents, as they guide you to create a healthier home for your child, even in the midst of this technology-steeped generation. That's what you'll find in my new book, TechnoLogic: How to Set Logical Technology Boundaries and Stop the Zombie Apocalypse, designed to help you set logical technology boundaries in your home. TechnoLogic includes contributors from many disciplines and walks of life.

Check out who you get to sit down with, in our book-based conversation:


Todd Wilson


Todd Wilson of Familyman Ministries is the author of Taming the Techno-Beast, Helping You Understand and Navigate Your Child’s Electronic World book and workbook set.

Todd is a dad, writer, conference speaker, and former pastor. His humor is well known and his down-to-earth “realness” has made him a favorite speaker at homeschool conventions across the country. You may also have heard him speak on Focus on the Family. As founder of Familyman Ministries, his passion and mission are to remind dads and moms of what’s most important through weekly emails, seminars, and books.

Todd and his wife, Debbie, homeschool six of their eight children. Two of them have already graduated. They live in Northern Indiana and travel across America in The Familyman Mobile. Learn more at The Familyman website. Todd knows what he is talking about and has vast experience talking with parents about technology and many other issues. You can completely trust his knowledge, judgment, and experience as he consults with families around the world.

Kim McDaniel


Kim McDaniel is the co-author (along with Hilarie Cash) of Video Games & Your Kids: How Parents Stay in Control.

Kim has provided a lot of guidance and encouragement for TechnoLogic. A devoted parent, wife, and a professional counselor, she has provided clinical services to families, children, and adolescents for 20 years in a variety of settings, including residential programs, hospitals, and in her own private practice. She’s a strong advocate of parents taking control of the role digital media plays in their children’s lives. Contact Kim directly at thriveprofessionalcoaching@gmail.com. Kim also recommends the reSTART Center for Digital Sustainability website for more information and support.

Cris Rowan


Cris Rowan is the author of Virtual Child: The Terrifying Truth About What Technology is Doing to Children. You can find her book, programs, and informational newsletter at Zonein.ca

Cris is a well-known author and speaker to teachers, parents, and therapists throughout North America and in China in the field of sensory integration, learning attention, fine motor skills, and the impact of technology on children’s neurological development. Cris has a Bachelor of Science degree in Occupational Therapy and Biology, and is an SIPT-certified pediatric sensory specialist. Cris serves on the committee for the Institute of Digital Media and Child Development, and is the CEO of Zone’in Programs Inc., offering products, workshops, training, and consultations to help promote technology boundaries and enhance productivity. Cris is the creator of the Zone’in, Move’in, Unplug’in, and Live’in educational programs for school and home. Her Foundation Series Workshops help educate parents, teachers, and therapists about how technology affects child development and her Zone’in Training Programs help train other pediatric occupational therapists.

Real Parents and Families Around the World


Real parents have shared their family stories in TechnoLogic. Some stories are painful but they are always honest and revealing. Your comments and questions gathered from my work as The HomeScholar have provided much of the inspiration for this book.

Scattered throughout the book you will also find encouraging tidbits and tiny quotes that I call Lee's Lessons - helping you feel like I'm coming along side you to help with creating technology boundaries.

I'm very excited about the launch of my new book, coming out this week on Amazon! To look inside and pick up your own copy, click here!
