HOMESCHOOL OPEN HOUSE
I wanted to help parents get started in homeschooling with a vivid notion of how other families wind through their days, being able to observe as though they were a "fly on the wall" at each home. Learn how 55 families from around the world handle the learning of several children, how they get the house (moderately) cleaned, the meals cooked, and have time for husband and wife to be together. How do they resolve differences and nurture the character growth and education of their children? These "close up and personal views" help to focus in on what you like or don't like so that you may form a clearer vision of getting started in a style that begins to suit your own family culture. This book also offers fresh ideas to seasoned homeschoolers who are looking for new resources, tips, short cuts, change in style or scheduling, or who are concerned whether they "measure up" to other families. There are photos, log pages, and italicized resources. (500 pages) Topics covered in HOMESCHOOL OPEN HOUSE include:
Illusions about homeschooling and their results
Defining your family culture and environment
Fitting schooling to family lifestyle
Parenting strategies, chores, organization
Family management and personal empowerment
Decision making, change, and flexibility
Learning resources, italicized for easy reference
Questions to consider before homeschooling
