Good students usually come from good homes where one or both parents have spend a substantial amount of time, energy, and resources providing a rich learning environment. None of this means that you have to spend a lot of money on making your home look like a school and you don’t have to have a PhD in Education.
Educational success comes from putting time in what you want your children to know. If they spend time in front of the TV they will become a verbal TV guide. If they spend time on the arts or Math then that’s what they’ll know.
Do they know the value of hard work? Do you do everything for your kids or do they have to do work beyond what they think is comfortable or enjoyable?
Do they have a strong sense of responsibility? What is it your kids have to do each day no excuses? Do you follow through with them and make sure they actually complete them?
Do they have a willingness to keep going even when the going gets tough? How do you encourage and push them to not quit?
Do they know what they do well outside of a classroom setting? Success needs to exceed the classroom especially if your child doesn’t have a teacher that always encourages his or her personal best. Are your kids excelling in sports? the arts? music? a foreign language? Be sure to provide opportunities for well rounded success.
Do they have an understanding about people of other cultures? Creating kids who are ready for the world requires them to know that people of other cultures exist and speak a variety of languages. How are you strengthening their cultural IQ? Board games? Diversity in books? Diversity in music played or movies watched?

This is one you don’t want to miss! Be sure to stay until the end as I have a free gift I’ll be giving away.
Templates are great productivity tools for adults and entrepreneurs alike. When we use them we can organize our thoughts and accomplish goals faster. When you teach children to utilize these tools early in life they have a way to organize their thoughts, ideas, and days as well.
The templates I’m sharing with you today are the monthly goal setting calendar, weekly goal setting calendar and the test study guide. These can be used for any grade level elementary, middle school, and high school. I would suggest printing out as many copies as you need and placing them in a binder.

February is here and while our hearts and minds are focused on love I figured you’d be thinking of activities both you and your children will love. While we love them whether these children are your own or ones that you teach or mentor, we want the purpose of these activities to be to build a stronger personal relationship. Relationships are hard to navigate in childhood and adolescence and in the age of “Netflix and Chill” many young people have lost the art of conversation and connections. They heavily rely on the trusting adults in their lives to lay this foundation.
I’m so excited about the next endeavor for providing you with excellent content to live on purpose and in your purpose. The Called to Cultivate Podcast is officially now in the iTunes store and is ready for you to download!
The podcast will release a new episode every Thursday so be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode.
This is an extension of our Called to Cultivate Community and it’s a great way to learn more about teaching and empowering others. As always I’ll be sharing more about my experiences in running a youth development/mentoring program, experiences as an Educator, and things I’m currently working on (and you can too) in your empowerment business.
You can always check out the official podcast page here to listen to episodes, download resources and episodes and get show notes.
