Freckles and Choices and School Success

We’ve been sharing (and laughing a bit) about circumstances, and about choices.

The circumstances of our surroundings affect ourselves, our families, and our children.

Circumstances are something we cannot do anything about.

  • The gifts and talents we have.

  •  The families we are born into.

  •  Our neighbors.

Yet our choices can make all the difference.

  • Our choices can make our circumstances horrible.

  • Our choices can make our circumstances comfortable.

  • Our choices can make our circumstances exciting.

Let’s run through an example of what we mean.

Isn’t he adorable?

Isn’t he adorable?

  • His circumstances:  Freckles and curly hair.

  • Your circumstance:  Let’s pretend your child has a new best friend who has freckles and curly hair.

  • Your choices:  You can comment about his freckles.   You could make up a nickname for him, like Spot.  You could ask how he keeps his curly hair from getting tangled.  You could avoid saying anything about his appearance.

  • His circumstance:  His entire life people will feel the need to comment on his freckles and curly hair.  People will even laugh at him.

  • His choices:  He can become ashamed of his freckles.  He can be embarrassed about his curly hair.  He can become a bully, making fun of other people before they can make fun of him.  He could smile and change the subject.

We believe his parents have a huge part in how he chooses to handle people’s reaction to his freckles and curly hair. His parents can give him tools, things to say in response to compliments about his freckles, things to say in response to jokes about his freckles. 

His parents can model that eye color and skin type do not matter, but that personal hygiene is important.

Use soap, please.

Use soap, please.

Some families are dealing with a diagnosis of ADHD or autism.  That may be your particular circumstance.

We want to help make your family’s journey smoother.

You have choices in how you travel life with autism or ADHD.

You can give your child tools to succeed in school.  You can model good behavior when interacting with teachers.

Today we’re excited to announce our ADHD Parent Master Course:  Knowledge is Power!

We created this course because we see so many parents struggling. 

  • What’s wrong with my son?  Why can’t he act like other people’s kids?

  • How come the teacher is always sending my child to detention? 

  • Where can I get answers?  What is the solution to fix my child?

ADHD is real.  ADHD is caused by differences in the brain.  Not by differences in thoughts or dreams.  By biological differences. Differences your child was born with.

Does that sound like your child is condemned to be an outcast?  Someone who only can relate to others by fighting or through video games?  Someone who will never hold down a job?

Will they ever be able to live on their own?

Will anyone love them?


We want the best circumstances for our children.  We want them to learn and to grow into successful, happy adults.  Adults who have their own families and careers.  And who call home occasionally!

We can help you now, when your child is young. Now is the time to take the first step in the right direction.


Get ready to refocus your child’s bright, yet unfocused, mind!

  • A stern email from the teacher?

  • Another tardy because your child couldn’t get dressed on time?
