Why I Chose a PSP over Charter School

I often get asked why I chose a PSP over a Charter and every time my heart speeds up just a tad before I answer. You see this topic can be a touchy one and opinions can be strong about it, as they should be this is our children’s future. I have multiple friends who chose Charter and love it because it has worked best for their families. I still adore these friends, still value their opinions, and am still amazed at the work they do in their lives for the Lord. That choice was right for them.  My decision to go with a PSP had everything to do with the convictions the Lord laid on my heart, in regards to my family.

Ways to Discipline Your Kids

Our families were asked in an open forum town hall meeting, how they discipline their kids, and here’s their answers.

  1. In the case of a temper tantrum, stop everything, sit with your child and let them know this behavior is not OK and will not be tolerated.  Resume your activity once they are finished.
  2. Get eye to eye with your child and speak with them.
  3. Disobedience=losing toys and privileges
  4. Using God’s word as a positive affirmation of what we are to do and not do.
  5. Pray with your child
  6. Immediately remove your child from whatever they’re doing
  7. Let your yes be yes and your no be no!
  8. Use the book Wise Words for Moms as a guide for teaching and disciplining your kids.
  9. Show them their need for Christ.
  10. Use the book My ABC Bible Verses-Hiding God’s Word in Little Hearts
  11. Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them. Proverbs 13:24
