Publisher's Description

Discover the Diversity of Homeschooling

Confused and intimidated by the complexities of homeschooling, many parents assume it could never work for them. Now an updated edition of So You're Thinking About Home Schooling by Lisa Whelchel—herself a homeschooling mother of three—introduces to readers fifteen composite portraits of homeschooling families who show how every family can successfully face the unique challenges of its situation. The story-based approach deals with common questions of time management, teaching weaknesses, and outside responsibilities, as well as children's age variations, social and sports involvement, learning disabilities, and boredom. Seeing a wide variety of homeschooling families in action gives parents the information and confidence they need to make their own decisions about home-based education. Includes a new chapter from Lisa and an all-new resource guide with recommendations from real-life homeschooling families!



"I'm Thinking About Homeschooling"

You're also probably thinking, But can I really teach my children? Where do I start? What if I need to work outside the home? Must I have twelve children, raise goats, and bake my own bread? And what about socialization?

I could tell you the answers to these questions, but I would rather show you. Beginning with my own, I want to introduce you to fifteen families in fifteen unique situations who have all chosen to homeschool for different reasons, using a variety of learning methods. So… let's rap lightly on the homeschool door and peek inside before we decide if we are ready to move in!


Story Behind the Book

"My hope is that by the end of the book, and a stroll through the neighborhood, you will feel more confident as you identify a family situation and teaching method that resonates with your personality and philosophy of education. From there, you can simply look to the end of each chapter to find a sample schedule for the homsechool day and list of curriculum suggestions for that particular teaching method."

—Lisa

__________________________________________________________________________________________________


"Deciding if homeschooling is right for your family just got easier with this warm, entertaining, information-packed portrayal of its flexibility, diversity, triumphs, and challenges. Grab a cup of tea and enjoy!"

—Linda Dobson, author of The First Year of Homeschooling Your Child

    In my preparation/research into homeschooling, this was one of the first books I read. Welchel's fictional homeschooling situations gave me the confidence I needed and showed me that there is more than one way to homeschool.

    The books is a very simple read and I even enjoy re-reading it now am then.

    My wife and I read this last summer. We decided to really pray and discuss our kids education and look into the options. While we didn't decide on homeschooling this was a great fly over view of the topic. We think so highly of homeschooling and know many wonderful friends that choose it, but we decided for the time being it just wasn't for us. I would highly suggest this book for anyone looking into the homeschooling option. A good book about the public school option is called "Going Public" by Kelli/David Pritchard.

    This is a great book for every parent to read. It made me realize that the sterotype I had in mind on what homeschool families are like was completely wrong. One of the families in this book will probably look a lot like yours. It's also a very easy to read book. It's interesting and funny at times and it's not trying to convince you to homeschool. It's just trying to help you decide which type of schooling is best for your child.
