How To Homeschool My Child

Teaching Your Kids “How to Think” {FREE Masterclass}

I’ve been listening to you tell me which of our resources would be most helpful to your homeschool. Several items keep coming up, but one that continues to be at the top of the list is Teach Your Kids How to Think.

As you plan for next year, are you looking to fill in the gaps? One area that doesn’t come in a curriculum is truly preparing kids to live as adults. . . helping your kids make wise decisions and think critically in any area.

Have you ever thought . . .
I wonder if my homeschool is really preparing my kids to be an adult”.

The thought crossed my mind many times during our 10 years of homeschooling. I wanted my kids to make wise decisions. To think Biblically as they make decisions. Use the grid of Scripture in all areas of their adult life.

After much research, as well as trial & error, I landed upon a 3-step strategy that truly helped our kids. They are all adults now, thinking for themselves and striving to make Biblical decisions.

How did we do it?

Next Tuesday, I want to share the strategy that I used with my own kids…one that really helped my kids learn how . . .

To think for themselves.
To think Biblically & critically.
To be able to make decisions for themselves.

    I see in the post where it says, “Grab your seat right here by filling in your name & email:,” but there is no form to actually fill out. Am I missing something??

  2. Holli-Marie Taylor says:

    The biggest challenge to help my kids think for themselves is remembering to take the step back and actually let it happen. Sometimes it’s too easy to do the thinking for them, especially when it is an “important” decision.

  3. Heather Baier says:

    excited for this

  4. An says:

    My biggest challenge is ‘time’. I always feel so rushed, pushing everyone to ‘hurry up, get it done!’. I feel so pressured to make sure we get stuff done to meet the end of the year assessments! It doesn’t help that 3 of my 4 students have reading troubles and 1 student has multiple learning issues.

  5. Carri says:

    So, I followed the link you sent me for the workshop and I’m here but not seeing anything about the workshop?

  6. Michaela says:

    Hi Kerry,
    I actually got the invite for this event on March 7, 2018, the day AFTER it took place…. LoL! …. WEIRD…!
    I would love to attend sometime in the future… perhaps send me an email the day of or before…?
    Thanks!

    • Kerry Beck says:

      I’m not sure why you received the invite after it took place. We sent emails last Thursday, as well as this past Monday & Tuesday. The replay is available right now if you’d like to watch it. All you have to do is register for the workshop and you’ll get all the replay info.

  7. Jamie says:

    My biggest challenge right now is knowing how to effectively encourage an uninspired know-it-all (who suddenly knows nothing) to do the hard thinking that comes with deeper learning, problem solving, and conversations.

    • Kerry Beck says:

      I think that’s true with many of our older kids. Believe it or not, I think boredom helps deeper learning. Time with silence for our kids to actually think. Hope you can make it on Thursday.

  8. My kids have a hard time making decisions on the spot – they forget what they know and get stuck.

    • Kerry Beck says:

      That’s a good point. I had a child who had a difficult time making decisions. We gave him more opportunities to practice making decisions so decision making came easier for him.

  9. Jodie Moss says:

    The biggest challange for me is that my children have anxiety and constantly look for reassurance, i want to foster some independance and encourage them to make deciisons but wothout causing them to become over anxious

    • Kerry Beck says:

      Kids don’t want to make a mistake. I understand. Neither do I. Hopefully, you can let them make small decisions and praise them so they feel good about their decision.

  10. Nynke says:

    For me it’s patience to help them think through something instead of just giving them the answer

  11. Rebecca Watson says:

    Is there a way to watch the workshop online for those of us who are not able to attend this?

    • Kerry Beck says:

      We plan to send a replay if technology is kind to us. 🙂
      If you want to watch the replay, be sure to register for the workshop. We will only send the replay to those who register.

  12. Renee says:

    This is something I know my kids need, but have no idea how to go about teaching them. I’ve got one “ditsy” one who gets distracted easily, and doesn’t seem to know what’s going on around her, and another one who thinks he knows everything but if you ask him, he doesn’t really know! (sound familiar, Jamie? haha!)

    • Kerry Beck says:

      Sounds like a normal family. All kids need help learning to think. Hey, I even need encouragement to think critically every once in a while.

  13. Heather says:

    This seems useful!

  14. Shannan says:

    I couldn’t sign up by “clicking here” so I am reaching out here. My biggest challenge is having my daughters think, then make a decision and stick with it. They will quickly change their mind. I don’t want them to be wishy-washy in their decision making but instead solid and firm.

    • Kerry Beck says:

      I’m so sorry you were unable to sign up. I’ve added you to the list so you should receive the replay links and any other items we have for you.

  15. Lori Jorgensen says:

    I signed up for this but never received a link. :'(

  16. Andrea Honch says:

    I have no idea how to teach this to my children or where to start.

    • Kerry Beck says:

      Andrea, Thanks for your comment. Watch your email this week. We are hosting a summit for moms who are just starting homeschooling, especially for those who are moving from classroom to homeschool. I am honored to be a speaker at the summit, also.

  17. Wendy says:

    Can you please manually register me also? I cannot get to a link to register.

    • Kerry Beck says:

      Wendy,
      I’m so sorry. Some computers have a firewall that prevents a sign up form. I will manually sign you up if I know what time you want to attend. If that is a problem, please email me.

      You might try a different browser, also.

  18. Gretchen says:

    I’m not seeing the registration area either. I clicked where it said to if you’re on email and I keep getting the same page. Please he!lp

    • Kerry Beck says:

      Gretchen, I”m so sorry. Some computers have a firewall that prevents a sign up form. I will manually sign you up. If that is a problem, please email me.

      You might try a different browser, also.

  19. R G says:

    Biggest challenge is how much information is constantly coming at them just expecting to agree and telling them what to think. It is easier to just go through their lives accepting whatever anyone else whom they like, admire, respect, or who has some credentials tells them than to think for themselves.

    • Kerry Beck says:

      You are so right. Kids are bombarded … well, adults, too. It takes some thinking to sift through all the opinions out there.

  20. Sheree says:

    Hi Kerry,

    I’m from Victoria in Australia and wondered what the time difference would be here if I wanted to sign-up for one of the webinar times. How do I know which one to choose? If you could please let me know as soon as you get this message so that I can sign-up I would be very grateful. Thanking you in advance.

  21. Wendy says:

    The blank stare

    • Kerry Beck says:

      Wendy, I understand. Hopefully, you’ll get some ideas to encourage your kids to interact on a critical thinking level.

  22. CS Calkins says:

    same problem — using firefox and not seeing any place to enter my information.
