This group was created in response to those attending the right-brained (creative) learner workshops given by Cindy Gaddis. She now has a book on the same topic, The Right Side of Normal.
This list is a place where we can come to understand and give value to our creative children as we home/unschool with them.
If your child is interested in and has a talent for art/photography, music/dance, theater/showmanship, computers/video games, cooking/gardening, fashion/sewing, mazes/puzzles, or building/electronics, this may be the group for you.
If your child has been in school and been labeled with ADD, gifted, dyslexia, Asperger's, LD or other similar difference, this may be the group for you.
If you have heard people make comments about your child such as he/she is not living up to his/her potential, he/she is smart but lazy, or your child resists your teaching methods, or he/she has been known to say, "this is stupid," this may be the group for you.
Our focus will be on discussing alternative ways (vs. public school methods) to help our creative children learn which best suits their learning style and respects their complex personality traits. We will discuss creating a success-based learning environment that draws on the strengths of our creative learners while providing support-based opportunities to gently guide their intense natures.
Come join us in celebrating our creative learners as we share with each other their uniqueness as well as sharing individualized ideas with each other on how to be better parents and home/unschoolers as it pertains to their differentness.
For those of you new to this idea, come join us in beginning your journey of understanding and creating a new value system for the learning style of your creative learner. We are here to help share, enlighten, and celebrate with one another for the benefit of our creative learners being able to live and learn authentically and joyfully. Come prepared to shift your perspective!
