Book Overview

If you believe that a good education is the greatest gift you can give your child, you're probably pretty unhappy with what's being taught in most classrooms these days. If you think that education should do more than just train kids to take standardized tests, that it should build their critical thinking skills, enable them to weigh ethical considerations, instill a passion for learning, and reflect your core values and beliefs, then you're probably...

Great if your on the fence about Homeschooling

This is a very informative book from a seemingly experienced homeschooling mother. Looks at ALL the ins and outs, ups and downs. I would recommend it for sure.

Priceless Resource

When considering homeschooling as a viable educational option for our boys, we were in a fog. Homeschooling seemed like a very foreign (very weird) concept and we were hesitant to attempt due to lack of exposure to any credible information on the subject. We bought "Homeschooling for Dummies" (our first in a long line of "Dummies" books) and made the switch just 6 months later. It has everything you need in a one-stop reference that can be used to determine if homeschooling is right for your family as well as fine tune any already-homeschooling families. It breaks down everything from the slightly unusual "unschooling" and the dreaded "socialization" question to lists of books and references to use as a jumping-off point. Thinking of taking the plunge into homeschooling? This is THE book to read first.

Straight forward information with no agenda

We have been in homeschooling since the 70's and aside from Homeschooling For Excellence written by a couple we know and respect, this is a book I would highly recommend simply because it offers valuable information and does NOT set out to convert people to homeschooling. Even bought a copy for my local library.

One of my favorite Homeschooling books!

Really Good book for people new to homeschooling as well as the veterans. There's lots of resourses, and practical information. Very comprehensive, and yet very easy to read and skip around if you want!

Thank goodness -- a book that answers questions!!!

Three cheers for HOMESCHOOLING FOR DUMMIES!! Every other homeschooling book I ever picked up had an agenda -- they wanted you to do things this way or that way, and preached that no other way of teaching could possibly work at all. HOMESCHOOLING FOR DUMMIES explains the pros and cons of many different teaching methods without proclaiming that any one of them is the *only* answer. Most importantly, the author shares her experiences with things that worked and things that failed with her own kids, and how she continually reshapes her teaching approaches. It felt great to finally hear someone say "find what works for your kids and do it"!!! Everyone either thinking about homeschooling or currently teaching at home needs a copy of this book. It's a life (and sanity) saver!!!!
