An Out-of-the-Box Approach to Raising Out-of-the-Box Kids with Lindsay Leiviska The HomeSchool CEO

    • Entrepreneurship

Some kids are challenging to raise. Their behavior may leave their parents feeling exhausted, hopeless, and embarrassed. So what’s a mom to do? How do we control challenging behavior? What if it’s actually us, as moms, that need to change? What if our kids aren’t really difficult or challenging? What if they simply think outside the box?   Our guest today is Lindsay Leiviska, a Christian wife, homeschool mom of three, and educator with a Masters Degree in Teaching. Her life was turned upside down when her son turned 18 months old and suddenly became a "difficult child.” Everything she thought she knew about being a good Christian mom was challenged. Over the past six years, Lindsay has discovered an appreciation for how God created out-of-the-box kids and now she’s on a mission to empower parents who are raising children who think and process the world differently. In This Episode, You’ll Discover: their family's experience in adopting a baby after a journey through infertilityhow their adopted baby's behavior changed drastically at 18 months old and how it affected their homeschooling and family lifethe shame involved in Lindsay realizing that she didn't have the tools to help her son and the pivotal moment that led her to get help via counselingthe steps she and her family took to get their son to what he is nowhow the experience of raising their adopted son and learning how the brain works helped Lindsay become a better parent and teacherthe importance of casting a vision for your childwhy out-of-the-box thinkers should not be considered "oppositional defiance" and how they will change the worldhow she provides support for homeschool moms raising uniquely-designed kidsher advice to Homeschool CEOs who are in the trenches and dealing with a "difficult" childwhy parents are supposed to put relationship first with their kids I can relate so much to Lindsay’s story because I raised an out-of-the box child too. I hope this lets you know that you’re not alone in this journey and that there’s no shame in raising uniquely-designed kids.
