Norm Quantz & I discuss:
- How much you understand yourself helps you understand others.
- It’s why you things.
- It’s not how you hear things, it’s what you hear in things that matters.
- The power and control aspect is the most important thing in a relationship.
- Power is the potential that you have; control is the use of that power in your actions.
- Our early traumas set in place how we will relate.
- Trauma is the distance between what you expected to happen and what actually happened.
Norm Quantz encourages homeschool parents:
- Know what impact your power & control dynamics have on your relationships so you are able to better understand how other people are impacting you. They often respond to what they sense from you.
- Understand your reaction to trauma and what story you created around that reaction.
- We can use the six-steps of Trauma No More to engage our children so they feel heard and to understand how their trauma feelings affect them.

Big Emotions Journal for the Homeschool Mom
Introducing the Homeschool Mama’s Toolbox, a set of resources designed to help homeschooling mothers deal with big emotions and specifically address their thoughts. Your brain and thoughts are important tools that need to be regularly sharpened, and the Toolbox is here to help you do just that.
Incorporating mindfulness practices into your homeschool is one of the most effective ways to separate yourself from your thoughts and be present. The Toolbox includes three questions from Dr. Amen, author of Change your Brain, Change your Life: What am I feeling? What is the thought behind my feeling? What is the story behind my thought? These are questions that you can practice regularly to get the most out of them.
The Toolbox also encourages a daily meditation practice to help you distance yourself from your thoughts and just be present. Guided meditations such as Guided Meditation on Controlling Negative Thoughts and Guided Meditation for Inner Peace & Calm can help you get started.
Additionally, the Toolbox offers a Thought Care Checklist to help you deal with challenging situations that may arise in your homeschool. By considering alternative perspectives, you can reframe your thoughts and deal with the situation in a more positive and constructive way.
With the Homeschool Mama’s Toolbox, you can learn to influence your thoughts and create a better reality for yourself and your family. Download the Toolbox today and start sharpening your tools!
