Overcoming the Expectation Trap to Save Your Homeschool Day and Your Relationships

We all have an ideal picture of what we want our days to be like and what we want our relationships to feel like, yet many of those days we don't meet our ideal pictures. Why? What happens? Whose fault is it? And most importantly, what can we do about it? Understanding the power and pitfalls of expectations as well as how to find success in a not so perfect day are some of the lessons that will transform your family and your homeschool.

Nicholeen Peck

When it comes to parenting, Nicholeen Peck is a worldwide phenomenon and leader — and for good reason! Her proven system based on Four Simple Skills transforms even the most out-of-control teenagers and homes from chaos to calm within days. Though she's an international speaker, author, mentor, former foster parent of many difficult and troubled teens, and even President of the Worldwide Organization for Women (an approved consultant for the United Nations), Nicholeen spends most of her time at home with her husband and four children, which she knows will be her greatest impact and legacy. The fact that she has such an international influence while still being a stay-at-home mom is evidence of the effectiveness of her teachings.
