         Course Description:

This class will be aimed at covering all the daily-living habits that every homeschool Mom is trying to teach her child,
hopefully presented in a fun and authentic way that will be informative, practical, and based on God’s word, without being preachy.This class will be mostly geared towards students that are not naturally strong "type A" personalities (naturally driven and self-motivated), although all students can benefit and learn from these concepts. 
Topics covered will include: prioritizing, goal setting, time management, identity, decision making, positive attitude, good work habits, study skills, and self evaluation.

Class Time:

  • Class time will include, but not be limited to, lecture, video clips/excerpts, brainstorming, class discussion, etc.
  • Please contact the tutor for more information.

          Homework Requirements:

  • There will be outside reading and the use of checklists to demonstrate putting these habits into action.
  • There will be a semester project.


  • Students will get out as much as they put into this class.
    If they do the work and put forth effort, they will do great.
    It should be an easy A, but it will require applying themselves.
