As Christian homeschool parents, it’s important to raise our children in a way that aligns with our faith and values. One aspect of this is teaching our children to have a positive attitude and avoid complaining. This may seem like a small issue, but it can have a big impact on our children’s lives and the way they interact with the world around them.
When our children complain, they are focusing on the negative aspects of their situation rather than the positive. This can lead to a negative outlook on life and a lack of gratitude for the blessings they do have. Additionally, complaining can be a contagious behavior that spreads to others and can bring down the overall mood and atmosphere of our homes and communities.
May we recommend that you watch this short video from our friend Suzanne Gose at Flip Flop Spanish? In this video, Suzanne shares how her Marine Corps husband implemented a two-week no-complaining boot camp to help their children learn to not complain.
The approach may seem extreme, but it’s effective. Teaching our children to focus on the positive and not complain is a valuable life skill that will benefit them in all areas of their lives. It will help them to be more resilient in the face of challenges, appreciate the good things that the Lord has placed in their lives, and have a more positive outlook on the world.
Watch Suzanne’s video to learn more about how her family implemented this no-complaining boot camp and the positive impact it had on their children.

As homeschool parents, we have the unique opportunity to instill our values in our children from an early age. Let’s pray for grace to help us raise positive children who show their gratitude and thanksgiving to the Lord every single day!
All for our King’s glory,
