Schools (and daycares) are closed.

And you still have to work, right?

The kids are off school: Now What?

This workshop has now concluded, but I still have resources to help:

Brought to you by Jen Lumanlan (M.S., M.Ed) of the Your Parenting Mojo podcast

You're in survival mode.

You don't have time to wade through 300 Google Docs of resources for kids. Join me in this FREE workshop and I'll guide you through the RIGHT resources to reduce the overwhelm.

In this FREE one-week workshop, you'll learn how to:

Shift your mindset from feeling trapped and helpless about the situation to being calm, focusing on what you can do, and finding a sense of balance

Set up hands-off activities to keep them busy when you need to work or have a few moments to yourself

Avoid being triggered, even when you're cooped up with your spouse and kids for days on end

Cope with sibling fighting in a way that gives them tools to solve their own problems - saving your sanity and building life-long skills!

Use the child's interests as a jumping off point for true learning so you can feel confident that this time off school isn't being 'wasted.'

When you sign up I'll send you a sample daily routine to tide you over until the workshop starts!

"Just wanted to let you know I downloaded your sample routine (I joined the workshop) and I could feel my blood pressure dropping as I read through it.  I've seen a lot of intense homeschooling schedules circulating around the internet and I was starting to freak out.  Looking forward to the workshop!" - Relived Parent of Two

Hi! I'm Jen (and that's Carys)

I never saw myself as a mother.  I don’t really ‘do’ nurturing – at least not of things that have a lot of needs and can’t be reasoned with.  In hindsight, I spent way too much time on my birth plan, and not nearly enough time thinking about what raising a child might be like.

When Carys was about four months old I was actually starting to think about discipline (a bit early, I know…).  I didn’t know how I was going to be a parent whose kid didn’t walk all over them without being a parent who always said “no.”

A couple of weeks after that, some friends were visiting with their toddler son.  We were in the living room and he went running down our hallway to our bedroom.  His Mom called after him: “Jack, please don’t go in there – it’s private.  You can go in the nursery or come back to the living room.”

Jack stopped on the threshold of our bedroom, and ran back to the living room.

“How did you do that?” I said.

The answer launched my journey as a parent: toward a Master's in Psychology (so I understand your struggles), followed by another in Education (so I know how to support your child's learning), all underpinned by principles of respectful parenting.  Then I launched the Your Parenting Mojo podcast (named Best Research-Based Podcast by Lifehacker!) to share what I learned with others.


I’ll be right beside you every day with information, support, and resources, starting on Monday March 23rd.
