Use Your Work Skills at Home – Advocate for Your Children — 29 Comments

  1. I agree! Using skills youlearn on the job can come in super handy for things at home

  2. I worked for the second largest school district in the US for over 20 years. One of the first things I always told parents is that they are their children’s best advocates and they need to be assertive and take that job seriously.

  3. I think it’s wonderful that you’ve provided this resource for parents. No one’s got their corner like we do, it’s always great to learn new ways to keep that corner polished and looking good!

  4. This sounds like a great book. Although I am a teacher, I’d love to learn more about advocating for my boys. I teach high school and they are in elementary… it is quite different.

  5. I am a teacher, so patience is one skill that I have mastered in the classroom. However, it also serves me well at home. Living with three boys, one needs ALOT of patience. 🙂

  6. I like to have things organized and neat in the office and my kids are picking up on that and applying it to the toy room.

  7. Thanks for your kind words and for thinking it would be worthy of your daughter! That is indeed high praise.

  8. “How to Advocate for Your Children’s Success.” sounds like a good read…perfect for my daughter. The book will make a great gift.

  9. We’ve been working on involving our son more in what we’re doing at home – whether it’s related to the house or to our work life. I don’t want him to NOT know what I do for a living. And I want him to learn basic skills. It’s up to me to teach him!

  10. There are quite a few work related concepts that can be applied to child rearing, but budgeting, time management, and interpersonal skills are three of the best.

  11. I learned to organize at work and though the outside of our home and SOME rooms in our home (hey I have kids!) are unorganized, I do a pretty good job of it!!

  12. When I volunteer at my children’s schools, I see a lot of parents who want to advocate but don’t know how. That is why I wrote the book. We all want to help our children, we just need the tools. I hope the book helps your daughter. Stop by and let me know how it works out.

  13. That is awesome! It is great to teach your kids lessons in the normal course of life. They seem to stick better that way.

  14. This is such a great example! Your advice and example will serve them well throughout their lives.

  15. Oh goodness where do I begin! If I have a project at work due in two weeks I get it done in 1! I use this as an example when my girls have a school project due. Knock it out.

  16. Organizing things was something I learned when I used to work. You can take a lot of on the job skills and use them at home. You can adapt them to fit your lifestyle.

  17. What a great book and post! There are so many skills we can take from work and our every day lives to teach to our children.

  18. What a great post! This is all so true. I think being organized is a great work skill that is really needed at home to keep everything running smoothly for the kids.

  19. The good thing about my gig as a food blogger is that kiddo can take part in it by helping with the cooking. We tend to turn some of our cooking experiences into life learning lessons the way my mom did.

  20. I wish I would have known how to advocate for my Daughter when she was young. That was many years ago. Now, she has her own children so this book may help her.
