Anyone can teach; becoming a great mentor requires developing skills and abilities. The good news is that skills and abilities can be learned. When you take the leap from teacher to mentor, it is no longer about you or the perfect curriculum or a well-ordered schedule. It becomes about the individual needs of your child and identifying the next step. When you are able to look that child in the eye and see her genius, the way becomes a lot clearer and the insecurities give way to faith in her unique path and potential. Becoming a great parent-mentor will make all the difference, and I invite you to join me for a crash course in some of the most powerful concepts in mentoring.
As the mother of six and the mentor to hundreds of youth, Kathy has been homeschooling since before it was cool. Like you, she has felt the tremendous highs and lows as her children have self-educated and searched for their passions. For the last nine years she has had the opportunity of training parents to be mentors with the Leadership Education Mentoring Institute (LEMI), which specializes in the unique (and sometimes terrifying) teen years. In addition to being a trainer for LEMI, she also travels all over the country doing Unleashing Your Voice! public speaking and debate seminars and offers an online monthly webinar series called Mentoring the One. She provides one-on-one mentoring online for homeschooling success, finding mission, entrepreneurship, writing, public speaking, and life coaching.
