YMB #47 Morning Time and the Only Child: A Conversation with Tina Roman


It’s a question we get asked often and it is a good one: How do I do Morning Time when I have just one child? How do I keep it from looking like the rest of my school day? Today Tina Roman, mom of one, is here on the show to talk to us about what Morning Time looks like in her home. Hint: It’s not as quiet as you might think it would be. Enjoy!

    Where does Tina live? I live in Denver, Colorado & we have an only child boy like Tina, our son is in 4th grade also doing Charlotte Mason. Wow so similarities..we struggle to find only boys around 10 years old

    • Tina Roman says:

      Hi Bluey, I’m in NY. Unfortunately a bit too far for our boys to get together 🙁

  • Shannon says:

    I also have one child. My son and I do Morning Time in a very similar way. He is 10 and in 4th grade as well. We have fun with Morning Time.

    This podcast was even more encouraging than the usual high standard of encouragement on YMB! Something about hearing the same principles and ideals applied in a different situation really helped me see how I could improve my own home school with four kids. Thank you Tina and Pam!

    THIS!!! Thank you for this!

    We’re a single-child family and oh how frustrating mornings are around here.

    I need a really good morning plan and this has encouraged me to keep going. Our guy is an extrovert and I totally get what you were saying about losing him. I got a had-to-take call this morning from the vet and it got him distracted and it took me 45 minutes to bring him back around.

    Thanks again for this encouragement!

    Thank you! My DD8 and I are just getting ready to add Morning Time to our day. We’ve been homeschooling since the beginning, but I had never thought that we could really “do this” with just the 2 of us. 🙂
