Publisher's Description

Giving your child a quality education experience for a life of happiness and purpose is possible--and it only takes four hours a day or less! 

We want our kids to have the best education, but less-than-ideal school environments and concern about our kids' specific needs have parents uncertain about traditional schooling. Trusted homeschool expert with 25 years of experience homeschooling her own eight children, Durenda Wilson offers a better way and promises that you already have what it takes to give your child a healthy, successful future. 

In The Four-Hour School Day, she unpacks the lifelong advantages of home education, both for the health of your family and your child's future. With inspiring stories about parents just like you, she demystifies homeschooling and addresses common fears like, what if I'm not qualified, how can I homeschool as a single parent, and what if I don't have enough time? Packed with encouragement and practical advice, this resource equips you with all the information you need to create a sustainable homeschooling plan customized to your child's needs. 

Wilson will help you to:

  • Work with your child's interests and passions for an enjoyable learning experience
  • Cultivate independent learning in your child so you have more time and your child develops more curiosity
  • Navigate the different schooling stages your child will go through
  • Find an engaged community so that you can start this adventure with all the support you need. 

Explore the rich and wonderful world of homeschooling because it's not only more doable than you think, but far more beneficial than you can imagine.
