In our last episode, Joanne introduced the Five Steps to Self-Teaching Success, and in this episode she will expound on each of these important, yet simple steps.

Do you find you stress over curriculum more than anything? Curriculum is simply the tools we give to our children. If you think about it, when you watch a show like This Old House or The New Yankee Workshop, the emphasis is not on which brand of tool to use. The emphasis is on the SKILL and VISION of the craftsman and HOW TO USE the chosen tools in order to achieve the stunning visual and often practical results. Joanne  teaches you the skills and vision part of education, and how to teach your children to manage their time and purpose without all the hoopla and focus-pocus on tools (curriculum).

GIve your young children a life-long advantage by teaching them the rules of the road (basic reading and math skills), and then removing the training wheels, backing off on the necessary-at-first micromanagement, and eventually letting go of the bicycle! Stand back and watch with amazement as your children fly like the wind!
