A must have. Honest. Our family is still on the fence of whether or not to home school. But even in this, I highly suggest this book. It has revolutionized how I look at my home and how I will approach motherhood. Truly inspiring and written in an approachable manner.
This is an excellent resource for those who are thinking about, whole are just starting or those who have been homeschooling for many years. The Clarkson Family shares stories and helpful tips that were observed in their own home, as well as taking the time to research a variety of other helpful options and suggestions. This is a tool that can be used for secular or religious educational purposes. It is an added bonus, throughout the book, that there are many discussions that are helpful in raising our children to be disciples and helping them to develop character. The area many forms that are helpful in the back, for organizational homeschooling purposes.
I am enjoying this book more than I thought I might. It has helped clarify my reasons for home school. I am finding that my philosophy about home schooling is being challenged and shaped with a more Biblical focus.
This book has had a profound influence on not only my perspective on homeschooling, but on parenting and family. I am so grateful it was recommended to me so early on in our homeschool journey. I highly recommend.
