Help! I’m Homeschooling a Tween!

I remember a time back when one of our sons was around age 11-12, when he would spend his usual hour working on math, but would only finish 2-3 problems because he was daydreaming so much. He just couldn’t seem to stay focused! Then when our daughter was around that same age, she seemed to […]

Motherhood: A Blessed Calling!
