We are LOVING the Bucket System. As a single mum with two young children, in our first ever year of homeschool, I was longing desperately for an example of how things CAN be done, without forcing ourselves to fit tight and pressuring schedules and whilst honouring ALL of our needs and nurturing our connection. I had a rather clear idea of what I did NOT want and I was in need of inspiration and guidance on how to do what I do want to do. The Bucket System is precisely that. Both my children - 6 and under and one with executive function and attention challenges - are loving it and even take their buckets to their dad’s. They’re proud of the way they respect their own commitments, I can state the same for myself and - most importantly - implementing the system has freed up headspace and time for me to really be there for them and support them, as opposed to getting them to do things. I feel extremely happy in seeing how this is supporting them in following and finding their own motivation; and how our relationship is flourishing thanks to the clarity, ease, freedom and peace of mind this is giving us. The Bucket System is simple and powerful - and useful for everyone regardless of age or education choices: I use it for myself as well!

So simple, yet so powerful. I love that Rachel emphasizes that once in place this just requires you to uphold one boundary rather than nagging over your kids all day! I have tried other strategies in the past but this class does go beyond the scope of just another to-do list. It helps you cultivate a family relationship in which everyone has a sense of purpose, autonomy and responsibility to achieve a happy healthy home. If you are not sure if this will work for " your kid" it may be exactly the thing that could help! Just go for it!

I am so happy I found Rachel and the Bucket System. I am so excited to get started. It makes sense, it aligns with our family values, and I think it will bring the entire family more joy. The pdfs and the examples she provides are super helpful. So many "YES!" moments as I was going through the class and I have 8 pages of hand-written notes from the class. Thank you, Rachel!!

This is a great extension of the original Bucket System class, with more tidbits of support from the ever-encouraging Rachel.

I am only partially in, and, already feel myself shifting and healing. I signed up for this course, ready to find a system for daily routines and tasks and remote learning for my family, but most especially my daughter with ADHD and Sensory Defensiveness. I had no idea that it would lead to healing for me. I am feeling inspired and excited about learning more as I continue the course and begin to implement the teachings in my family life. I am so grateful to Rachel who has continued to crack me open and lead me down the path I originally set out on as a parent, but strayed from, first through her podcasts and now this course.

I don't always have the right words when expressing my feelings. Going through this class really helped some things click about why what we have tried wasn't always working and so many amazing and new reasons to stop doing reward based house/self care. Our daughter wakes up and is so excited to get started on her pins and often asks to do more from the family bucket. If you are feeling like you want something new, innovative, responsive to your children's needs and having the house be a family collaboration, this is the class for you!

For now, we are using the bucket system for our morning and evening rhythm. As I’m sure many find, trying to get ready in the morning and wind down in the evening, ensuring all the essentials are done such as brushing teeth was an on and off ‘battle’. We tried different gentle approaches but nothing quite hit the nail on the head. I was still getting frustrated and my children didn’t feel in control or independent. Then came the bucket system! The course is easy to follow and fun. I loved how it dived into our own baggage first which is of course the most important work! I was getting excited whilst doing it, imaging in the possibilities it will bring. At our first collaboration myself and my daughters loved having one on one time, having a milkshake in a cafe together. The obvious things came up that we need to do on a daily basis. I loved their insights into what they personally need. For example, my 5yo needs to ‘move her energy’ before bed whereas my 2yo wants a massage. They loved getting the buckets and decorated theirs with stickers. And since implementing, morning and evenings have been a breeze! It works! They feel in control, they feel heard and valued. Their needs are met and so are mine… An incredible bonus to this system… It works just as well for adults! My pegs give me a nudge to love and look after myself too. My kids see this and value my needs too. It helps give me focus at the start of the day and to wind down and reflect at the end of the day. I’ve even added a ‘siesta’ peg for the days we are home all day where I get a quick 10 mins or even half hour just for me! Thank you Rachel. The bucket system is such a simple idea but brings such wonders to the family. Im looking forward to expanding on this more in the future.

We are a homeschooling family with two full-time, working parents, so we need a system to makes our workdays run smoothly. We have always been a family that values collaboration and honoring your own learning goals, but as the kids grew older and their goals got bigger, we realized we needed a way to help them work toward their goals without us hovering over them all day. The bucket system is working just as we had hoped. The kids are engaged and we are happy!
