Joy School

We love sharing one specific parenting or marriage tip each week, but this week we take a brief break from them to focus on Joy School (because if you have preschoolers, now is the time to think about starting a Joy School group for the coming school year).

Joy School is a phenomenal preschool curriculum that focuses on teaching kids the social and emotional “joys” that give them a foundation of happiness for life and that get them ready for kindergarten. Units include the Joy of the Body, the Joy of Imagination and Creativity, The Joy of Goal Striving and Order, and seven other “joys.”

Moms set up Joy School groups and then moms rotate as the teacher using the methods, stories, songs, and activities that make the teaching easy. All the other moms (who are not teaching that week) have the morning off!

One of the most complete preschool curriculums ever developed, Joy School costs a small fraction of what commercial preschools cost, and the program has become so popular that it has now been used by more than 300,000 families

Top Ten Parenting Ideas #10: A “Secret Code” For Better Family Communication

All parents know how important communication and discipline are within their family, but few seem to manage the clear, calm effectiveness they desire. What we need is a simple “secret code,” built around animal images that kids love, which corrects and reminds children of correct behavior without power struggles or arguments. Humpback Whales, for example, do not interrupt each other, and they sing pleasantly to one another—no yelling or anger. Crabs have an instinct to pull each other down so that if there are two crabs in a bucket, neither of them will ever get out. We want to be like whales, not like crabs.

The full secret code includes 9 animal images, researched, tried and proven, and guaranteed to make the task of correcting kids behavior simpler, more effective, and much, much more pleasant. For the animal code images and specific instructions on how to use them:
