Product Description

Written with all the grace and encouragement of a homeschooling mom's who's been there-and not on the "picture-perfect" side of the fence either-- Homeschooling for the Rest of Us is the book you'll want to read if you're just starting out, getting burned out, or on your way out of homeschooling due to the weight of expectations on your shoulders! Filled with reminders of the core elements you, as parents, are striving for, her relaxed style of homeschooling filters through each page; testimonies from other parents dot the margins; and anecdotes from her own life communicate the principles she espouses with clarity, vision, and a good dose of encouragement. 172 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

Homeschooling parents are under great pressure. Besides trying to balance teaching responsibilities and family life, they often face unrealistic expectations from relatives, churches, other homeschoolers, and society at large. Even parents considering homeschooling sense the need to be perfect.

Sonya Haskins doesn't want any more families to give up on homeschooling. In this book she shares affirming stories and practical ideas from dozens of everyday families who successfully deal with cluttered schedules, academic struggles, sibling squabbles, and other real-life issues. Instead of learning a one-size-fits-all approach, readers will discover how to evaluate their own family's strengths and weaknesses and set their own goals for success.

Author Bio

Sonya Haskins is a veteran homeschooling mom of five children and an active homeschooling consultant and advocate. She is the author of several books, including The Homeschooler's Book of Lists, and her articles have appeared in Homeschooling Today, Educational Dealer, and other magazines. She lives in the Tri-Cities region of northeastern Tennessee with her husband, Chris, and their children.

    Have you ever felt discouraged when you see homeschooling magazine covers portraying the perfect homeschool family, complete with 10 identically dressed smiling children that you just know never fight, have spotless bedrooms, and always get their advanced school work done early? I know that my family photo would not look as serene. Homeschooling for the Rest of Us, by Sonya Haskins, is meant as an encouragement to those who don't exactly fit the perfect homeschooling family mold.

    Through personal stories and a conversational tone, Haskins covers the concerns of a beginning homeschooler, Questioning relatives, messy homes, schedules, nurturing a child's heart, special needs children, homeschooling on a budget and, yes, even the socialization question are all part of this down-to-earth and practice guide to real-life homeschoolers. Haskins gives very specific tips, schedule examples, chore lists, life skills to teach, field trip ideas, and more.

    While I, a veteran homeschooler, didn't find this title very useful, it is sure to be a refreshing read as encouragement for those just beginning.

    If you've been comparing yourself to the perfect homeschool family that's featured in magazines, and feel something is lacking in your approach, read this book. It's for real people who homeschool in normal homes, of all sizes and shapes. No rapping you on the knuckles, or "do it my way or else" in this book. I found comfort and no longer felt alone in my HS as I read this book. The advice is down to earth and doable. Helpful to get you back on track in HS burnout time too.

    To preface this review, I am not a homeschooling mom. We have our children in private school but have considered homeschooling from time to time. I received a review copy of this book from Bethany House so I thought I would give it a whirl. The truth is, this book was very helpful for any mom, homeschooler or not. Sonya Haskins puts lots of great information about connecting with your children, ideas and tips on discipline/sibling rivalry and even living on a budget. I also got lots of good tips for homeschooling if we ever decide to go that route with our children. I would recommend this book to ALL homeschool moms, any mom's that are considering homeschool and even mom's that just want to have a good connection with their children no matter what their school setting. This was a fun and easy read, full of helpful information. Thanks Bethany House!

    I truly like that this isn't a "know-it-all" type of home school book. It's a very easy and delightful read. At only 172 pages, I'm not overwhelmed with lots of information.

    I grabbed at the chance to this book on homeschooling. I just wish I had this wonderful resource when I started homeschooling almost 7 years ago. I love how this book will help the beginning homeschoolers as well as the seasoned homeschooler's enjoy the journey of homeschooling. I know I am not alone when I say that being your child's teacher is a reward and a challenge at times. At times I feel alone in the struggles we face through the years while homeschooling. It's great to find a book that will help you get back the joy and love you had when you first thought of homeschooling your children. This book will help you:*Find an educational plan that fits your family*Help in dealing with family that doesn't follow in your plans for schooling your children*Budgeting and schedules*Co-ops, support groups as well as extra-curricular activites*Special needs*and much more Not only will this book help you in your homeschool journey but will help you tackling the day to day life of parenting. I highly recommend this book to all homeschooling families, new and seasoned!!
