Chart Your Course, Conquering Homework

Step 1:
Chart Your Course

Clear Vision

You are ready for real, lasting change in how homework gets done at your house, so let’s chart the course. Before you hit the road, we’ll show you how to get super clear about where you are right now and where you want to go.


Step 2: Get Ready, Get the Tools

Be Prepared

You can relax, knowing we will lighten your load by helping you gather just the right “gear” (tools and resources), customized for you and your child, so you have exactly what you need for success, no more, no less.


Step 3: Set Anchors
Feel Secure

Secure Connection

You’re gaining confidence and clarity, and your preparation is starting to pay off. Your next step is to strengthen the healthy emotional connections between you and your child, setting what we call “Emotional Anchors.” This kind of warm, secure attachment empowers your actions. 


Step 4: Get It Done.
Keep Going!

Empowered Action

Empowered by secure anchors, your actions become more effective. You’re positioned for success and able to inspire your child to take initiative and get their homework done without stress or pressure. You may ask, “Is this possible?” and the answer is, “YES!” And don’t worry, we’ve got your back and will show you how! 


Step 5: Celebrate!

You Did It!

Yay! You reached the summit. Enjoy the moment! Savor success! Celebrate each step along the way, even the small ones. Then pause to review and revise. What worked? What didn’t? What will you keep doing? What changes do you want to experiment with next?

Conquering a Summit Together

These Quick Wins are designed to reboot your relationship. 

Your efforts to change how your child does their homework will be most effective when you and your child have a strong, positive connection.

One is better than three?

We’ve given you 3 Quick Wins, but we suggest you pick just one, put it to work for you, then come back later and add another.

You might be tempted to think, “Well, three wins must be better than one,” but here’s another idea. Consider this a chance to start trusting our 50+ years of experience and the process we use to help families change their lives for the better AND PICK JUST ONE TO START!

  1. The Daily Double turns the tide on negativity.
  2. Smiling builds in more playfulness and fun.
  3. Storytelling reminds us of shared memories and successes.

About the presenters:

Together Cal and Anne bring you a powerful combination of strengths.  You will laugh and cry and shout for joy and everything in between as they lead you to better understand and use your own strengths so you can help your child find and use theirs.  Cal draws on a lifetime of overcoming the challenges of Tourette syndrome as well as OCD and ADHD.  In spite of being told he really wasn’t college material, he somehow managed to not only graduate, but to go on to complete a Masters degree in Public Health as well as a PhD.  His stories are based on his personal wisdom, his experience as a beloved professor for over 30 years, and his long career in Public Health motivating people to change their lives for the better. Anne taught first and second grade and then was fortunate to stay home and raise her kids. After the kids were grown, she went back to school and became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.   She’s spent the last 16 years as a therapist helping people heal their lives and their relationships.  She will help you create small, practical steps to put into action the inspiration you get from Cal’s stories.


Together Cal and Anne have 5 kids and 10 grandkids.  They’ve come through multiple bouts of cancer, infertility, the death of a spouse, divorce, combining two families into a reconstituted one, and so much more.  What really excites them is to look to the present, right now, here with you, what small steps can we take to make this day a better day for you and your family, and then the next, and then the next?
