Dr. Ray Guarendi

Homeschool Expectations vs. Reality

Melissa Savage

When you start out homeschooling, you have an image of what it will be like for you and your kids. You jump on this journey and throw your whole self into it, sometimes with blinders on. What happens when your child hits a speed bump, or if your family hits potholes along this journey? How do you pull yourself back together, find your way, and form a new plan?

2:30pm – 3:15pm

Respecting the Man the Boy Will Become

Martin Cothran

A father tries to explain to mothers why they can’t make sense of their boys. Why do they fight with each other? Why are they obsessed with doing dangerous things? Why can’t they sit still? Martin will give useful advice and a list of great boys’ literature which will not only help your student make sense of his own actions, but will help you to understand him.
