Dangling a Homeschool Carrot
Oh boy, you guys. There are some days when the whining almost drives me to the brink! And, lately, I'm finding the predictable whining to be the worst. The whining that you know is about to occur as soon as you say something that you need to say. For example, my 7-year-old takes piano lessons. This child sings, or whistles, or hums, from sun up until sun down. His piano teacher is amazing! He loves her! He loves going to lessons! But... asking him to practice? This is how it all goes down, every single day: Just remember that you still need to practice piano. Upon
