The Gilbert Family

This last week I spent three days in three cities teaching parents the Five Rules of Engagement and how they can have deeper educational experiences, sweeter family relationships and brighter ideas. It was so much fun.

I am really passionate about the Five Rules of Engagement. I am really passionate about parents coming to a place where they parent from a position of confidence and not guilt and discomfort. I am all about helping others see their children as they are and deeply loving them.

There is something wonderful about helping families be together for longer periods of time and love it. It is amazing to see a family create magic in their own home with a very simple educational tool called the Closet and then transform themselves, as a family, by implementing the Five Rules of Engagement.

It doesn’t take a lot of money, time or resources. All it takes is a willingness to try something new, changing how you see your children and reprograming some of the stuff in your brain. Then magic really happens.

Don’t believe me. Here is a letter from one of those super moms I spoke with last week. Believe her!

Dear Mary Ann,

I just wanted to let you know how much we are already enjoying the Closet Mastery Course. I listened to the first lessons on Friday, put some things together on Saturday and started on Monday.

I wasn’t sure how things had really gone until this morning (Tuesday) when my 12 year old and my 6 year old showed up in the bedroom at 6:45, asking to start school right then! Good thing I was lying down – I may have fainted then and there.

I love how our learning is so much fun now! Our day started with Hot Wheels math, writing problems on a chalkboard, then to the kitchen for pudding, which evolved into color theory play with food coloring- first in the pudding, then in glasses of water. You should have seen the look on my 4 and 6 year olds’ faces when they discovered how to make orange.

I am just so, so thrilled. I just now listened to the lesson on sparks and great ideas. Wonderful stuff!

Fun and magic have been completely missing from our curriculum driven schooling experience. Thanks for giving us our spark! This is really is going to change everything for us.

With love,

Kristi Gilbert
