Whole Call: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/08August/TSG_SC_8-12-20_WholeEdited.mp3 Question: Hi Nicholeen, A bit about us: We are a homeschooling family of 7 from Australia: Dad, mum, 10yr old girl, 3 boys aged 8,6 and 4 and a brand new baby girl! She is just 12 days old! I bought your course two days before I gave birth and have digested as much as I possibly can over these new baby days. We have always been a solid family but have really struggled with my two middle sons aged 6 and 8. They are both sweet and gentle boys but have really challenged us with some of their behaviours. We are just starting to get the hang of the four basic skills and it has already helped us and them tremendously.

Whole Call: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/07July/TSG_SC_7-29_20_WholeEdited.mp3 Question: Thank you for all the support you have offered in answering my questions on previous calls. I really appreciate being able to hear answers to my questions on the call recordings when I’m unable to be on the calls. One question I have wanted to ask as I have been working on the implementation course – how do I decide what an appropriate amount of privileges to offer kids in the day like screen time or snacks or time with friends (outside the pandemic) so that there is something they can lose if they lose privileges for 24 hours so they are more motivated to change if we get to the rule of three?
