Questions: 

  • I'm having major issues with my 12 year old son.  I don't want to seem him, he is extremely out of control and acting like he is 7 years old.  What do I do?
  • Will I have access to this program and material after the initial 10-12 weeks? The support calls are monthly subscription to continue.  But you will still have access to the information on the Implementation course. (Updated as of summer 2014)
  • I've been struggling with our 20 year vision for our family since I first heard you talk.  How do I make and achieve this?  
  • What does a Time-out look like for little children as compared to the Rule of 3?
  • How is Teaching Self Government different from Love and Logic (giving choices)?  
  • My 3 year old threw a trantrum and I had to take him into the hallway and leave my other children inside by themselves, what do you recommend for this type of situation?
  • I am struggling with distractions while trying to run the household and a homeschool.  How do I know if am being successful?
  • Nicholeen recommends balancing and prioritizing.  Top 6 Priorities
