Introducing Building Character With Children With Shirley Solis

By now you’ve probably seen me talking a lot about Building Character With Children, a new program by Shirley Solis, in social media. But just in case you haven’t had a chance to check out the FREE video for yourself, I want to tell you a little bit about how well it has worked for our family.

I am beyond surprised with how her technique of teaching my son to do his chores every morning without being asked has worked! I’ve been trying for a few years to get Tommy, 5, to pitch in a little more around the house. I’m not talking massive housework, just basic chores and taking care of himself. With the advice that Shirley offered in the first free video, he is now doing 5 things every morning before he eats breakfast. He even memorized what the 5 chores are on the first day! It not only worked, but it was so simple on my part.  Needless to say, tag me, I’m sold! I wish this woman was in front of me so I could give her the biggest hug.

If you’re wondering if Shirley Solis’ program is good for you, just stop and think about your family for a moment.

Are you frustrated with your children’s attitudes?

Are you tired of doing all the chores around the house?

Do you wish the children helped around the house a little more?

Need creative ways to train your children?

Want to start the year off right and finally train your children consistently?

Are you constantly yelling at your children?

Are you tired of arguing with your children?
Building Character with Children

Our Homeschool Today: Founders Academy

Today, and last Monday, Tommy & I sat down in front of my laptop to participate in 2 separate classes provided by Mrs. Schott (No relation, just a coincidence…) at Founders Academy.

As soon as I saw there were classes for the younger set of learners, I signed us right up. I’ve been following Founders Academy on Twitter and Facebook since last Summer, and hated that I had to wait YEARS to have a child old enough… because, honestly, I want to take the classes. Is that a problem? 😉

Last week, we learned about the American flag: what it means, how it came to be, & why it is important. I quickly realized that Tommy was not only learning about the flag, but how to listen to someone else. He also got to practice some of his computer knowledge as the class is interactive and he had to vote/answer questions. It was great!

This week, we learned about The Pledge of Allegiance. Why it’s important, how to be respectful during the Pledge, and of course, the words that we say.

Mrs. Schott does an amazing job of keeping the attention of my little crazy guy. He had a blast though, and stayed right on task.

If you are a homeschooling family, I highly recommend this company. The classes are very affordable, accredited, & educational!

Now… time for me to get back to watching that cork adhesive dry…
