Product Description

More and more children are being homeschooled. Now expanded, this classic work features up-to-date legal, financial, and logistical advice. With advice and ideas that lean towards unschooling, and certainly away from school-at-home, chapters on living with children, serious play, and work will fascinate and encourage parents. Plenty of personal anecdotes, letters, and examples of real-life people who are discovering the joys of natural, unstructured, child-led learning are included, providing a fascinating look into the lives of other homeschoolers. 334 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

Today more than one and a half million children are being taught at home by their own parents. In this expanded edition of the book that helped launch the whole movement, Pat Farenga has distilled John Holt's timeless understanding of the ways children come to understand the world and added up-to-the-moment practical advice. Rather than proposing that parents turn their homes into miniature schools, Holt and Farenga demonstrate how ordinary parents can help children grow as social, active learners. Chapters on living with children, "serious play," children and work, and learning difficulties will be of interest to all parents, whether home schooling or not, as well as to teachers. This new edition is supplemented with financial and legal advice as well as a guide to cooperating with schools and facing the common objections to home schooling.Teach Your Own not only has all the vital information necessary to be the bible for parents teaching their own children, it also conveys John Holt's wise and passionate belief in every child's ability to learn from the world that has made his wonderful books into enduring classics.
