Distanced, But Still Learning

How Our Family Went from "Survive" to "Thrive"

The Early Days

True story: this is the photo I sent to a good friend at the end of one of our first days of distance learning. She asked, "So, how's it going?" This photo was all I had in me to reply. 

 

It was 5:00 pm. I appear to have only recently found time for a shower. On the plus side, I do seem to have transitioned well from "daytime pajamas" to "nighttime pajamas."

 

I'm also pretty sure I hadn't eaten yet. And I'm positive my son was still pretending to do school work (though actually scrolling through inappropriate YouTube videos) while my daughter tried her best to distract him.

 

This was also the moment I realized that something had to change.

The Change

Literally overnight, our days shifted from crazy chaos to productive calm. Both my husband and I continued to work. And both our kids ROCKED distance learning.

But I saw my friends continue to struggle. They were using everything they had just to get through a single day.

So I created a community and wrote eBook, just to help my fellow parents.

 

In the Distanced, But Still Learning community, you'll find new motivation and support every single day. All for free. All in a safe, private space.

 

In the Distance Learning Success eBook, I share exactly how your family can pivot to success. Including the ONE trick that made all the difference literally overnight.

With a little expert help, your family can THRIVE during this crazy time, too.

It is so obvious that Rachel was a great teacher. Her information is so well researched. But it's still going to be so easy to add to our everyday routine. Her style is also really approachable and funny. That's one thing every parent doing distance learning needs: more laughter!

It's like somebody gave me all the insider info that teachers keep to themselves. We're going to schedule our days so differently now and have confidence for the new school year.

This definitely gave me a lot of tools to use as we start this school year. I'm hopeful that this will help us manage the overwhelm and stress.

I feel armed with tips, tools, and real life strategies for navigating the tricky world of distance learning. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is feeling stressed about another school year with distance learning.

~Courtney

We were so lost before. Crying and struggling and pretty much just yelling at each other all the time. Now I'm actually looking forward to distance learning. I never thought I'd say that.

As I was reading, I kept thinking of all the ways that this will make life so much easier for our entire family, right away.
