Homeschooling for the Rest of Us (Book Review)

Some people have the impression that they can't homeschool because their family, children and home aren't perfect. Sadly, some homeschoolers feel pressured to carry the image of being the "perfect homeschooling family". Let me just tell you right now, they LIE! None of us are perfect, none of our methods are perfect and certainly none of our kids are perfect.

In Homeschooling for the Rest of Us, Sonya Haskins helps to debunk the myth of perfectionism in homeschooling. She also gives lots of helpful tips and sage advice for those contemplating taking the plunge into homeschooling.

In this practical, encouraging guide, Haskins shares tried and true ideas on how to:

- Discover a realistic vision of homeschooling for your family
- Help your child get excited about learning
- Find a routine that fits your goals and lifestyle
- Nurture a Biblical worldview in your child's heard and mind
- And much more!

Whether you are already homeschooling or just considering it, this book offers the support, answers, and flexible strategies to help you succeed. So get rid of the mental image of the "perfect homeschooling family", look at your own family and decide that you can do this! For those of us with perfectionistic tendencies, this book is a great reminder to lighten up and enjoy the trip!
