Building Unity, Cultivating Quality Connections, and Developing Emotional Intelligence in Your Family

Presented by: Teresa and Rick Starr

Have you ever wished your children came with an instruction manual? They are all so innately different. Because homeschooling families spend so much time together, it is essential that they know how to value each other’s innate personalities and how to have effective communication strategies to help them find more joy in the moment and build lasting joy and quality connections in the future.
In this workshop, we teach you a simple and effective system to help you understand your kids, yourself, and your spouse, at the deepest core level. You’ll come to understand the WHY behind the behavior and how to best respond in order to emphasize strengths and promote optimal learning and growth. You’ll learn about innate driving core motives, strengths, limitations, needs, wants, and how to connect in meaningful ways with each member of your family and others. As a homeschooling family ourselves, this system has been transformational!
