Your child’s anxiety around going to school is causing more harm than good.
You want more time together.
You’re uncomfortable with some of the things being taught in school. You just want school to focus on the basics.
You may be considering homeschooling – which causes even more worry!
I'm not a teacher! How can I teach my child and be sure they don't fall behind?
Where do I event start? How do I know what to teach?
How do I tell people? My family and friends will think I'm crazy!
Won't I be isolating my child?
While traditional schooling works for many children, it may not be the best learning environment for your child.
I believe every child can learn - and wants to learn! They just need …
flexibility in how they show what they know
to get up and move when they need to
an environment that feels safe

The Drip, Drop and Drizzle Books
Drizzle and the Letter
Can you remember a time you got in trouble for something that wasn't your fault? That is exactly what happened to Drizzle, and boy was he MAD! You'll never guess what he did next...
Children of all ages will relate to DRIZZLE as his emotions seem to take on a life of their own. This story includes strategies for helping children manage their own strong emotions. Afterall, we can't always control our feelings, but we can decide how we'll react to them.
Drip, Drop, & Drizzle:
A JOURNAL for Growing Your Child's Creativity
A rain shower frequently starts with a few drips and drops before becoming a drizzle. The water absorbs into the ground and creates new growth. So too, finding the confidence to create something new can also be a process.
So often children think they have nothing to say and nothing to write about. After going through the Drip, Drop and Drizzle process, your children will realize they have a lot to say and much to write!

"My students love Mary's book. It not only works as a follow up for my lessons, but it also helps students with their writing stamina and creativity. With the simple, fun, and creative instructions my students have found a new love for writing that they did not have before."
Sofie Flefil, Teacher
"I like the book because my imagination is growing bigger and bigger."
Elias, Grade 3 Student
We had been very interested in the idea of Home Schooling for awhile, but knew very little about how to go about it or where to begin. There was so much we didn't know, and we felt way more educated after [meeting with Mary] and in a much better position to make a decision that was right for our family. Would HIGHLY recommend!
