Disclosure Policy and Copyright Information



You’re more than welcome to use any of the ideas that you find on my site in your home or school. After all, that is why I do what I do, to inspire you to get creative with your kids, raise them to be curious lifelong learners, and to help you help them be the best they can be. If you want to share a post on your own blog or website, you have permission to use one unaltered photo as long as you have included a direct link to the original article on my site.  Photos may not be altered or cropped (i.e., watermark must be intact). Please do not copy tutorials, even if you have modified them into your own words.  Please do not share any photos of my children, especially if their faces are visible, without prior written permission.  For further information on this copyright policy, please contact Colleen.

Raising Lifelong Learners is a personal blog written by me, Colleen Kessler. For questions about this blog, please contact Colleen.

I chronicle the adventures of our family, homeschooling, the ups and downs of parenting differently-wired, quirky, and outside-the-box kiddos — gifted and twice-exceptional. Any opinions on this blog are personal and mine. While I do accept products for review and cash advertising, I will only support products and companies I truly believe in. I want my readers to know that they can trust my word, therefore I stand behind everything I write about.

This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.



Throughout posts and in the sidebar, I link to other sites. Some of these links are affiliate links. This means that if you purchase something from that site after clicking over from Raising Lifelong Learners, I receive a (super small) percentage of the sale. Clicking through these links doesn’t cost you any more than you’d already be spending, but we earn compensation for the time we spend on the site and its resources.

I am interested in working with family friendly companies. If you are interested in ad space, sponsorship, or having me host sponsored posts or giveaways, please contact me to discuss how we can develop a mutually beneficial relationship. My media kit — with blog stats, rates, and information about companies with whom I have worked — is available upon request.
