I listened to this CD to reinforce my drive to homeschool my son as he enters the high school years. So many of my friends bale out on their children when they get to high school. I feel it is the worst time to throw them into the "real" world. Peer pressures, violence in the schools and lower educational standards are a few of the things we see in our area. Mr. Wile does a great job of giving evidence of NOT public schooling our high schoolers. He also gives some great ideas on how to make it all happen when we feel overwhelmed. The one point he made that really encouraged me was, " You don't have to be an expert to home school your child." He explained that with good books the child at this age self teaches much of his education. We are to only facilitate that learning. If he is stuck and we don't know the answer, we become co-learners at that point. The experience of searching out the answer together actually benefits the child far more than spoon feeding the answers. Excellent lesson for parents!!
