Worth Quoting

Worth Quoting

From a lovely blog called A Homeschool Story: “Parents: choose your battles, pick your subjects, the ones you believe in, the ones that speak to your child; her developmental readiness, his interests, and delve into them with all you’ve got. Let them have your time and energy and enthusiasm for this present moment, this...

Pioneering the Way

Do you remember when you first learned about the idea of homeschooling your children? Did it seem naturally right for you, or did you have to think about it a while, find out more information, discuss it with a few people, read a book or two and warm up to the idea first? For...

Where Will That Leave Us?

Holding the Center of Homeschooling

Holding the Center of Homeschooling

As I check my feedreaders for information and news about homeschooling, I’m surprised by the number of articles and blog essays which appear these days; it seem as though the annual back-to-school parade now necessitates an almost parallel reporting on the cutely-tagged ‘not-back-to-school’ crowd. As a result, homeschooling seems to have become a media...

The Other Side of Homeschooling

The Other Side of Homeschooling

Homeschooling. The word brings to mind images of colorful books piled on a table, a well-used collection of pencils and paper and scissors and glue, the waxy-sweet smell of a freshly-opened box of crayons, an assortment of kitchen-science ingredients in boxes and bottles of different shapes and sizes.

Doubts

Doubts

That in itself is nothing unusual, but the letter had a slightly different quality about it; I’d like to share a paragraph with you: “I’ve been reading about homeschooling, and especially unschooling, and it...

Love is magical and mysterious and all-powerful; it has the power to transform lives. We homeschool our children...

Good Relationships

Good Relationships

Every parent wants to establish good relationships with their children whether they are homeschooling or not. ~Marty Layne That line practically jumped off the screen at me as I scrolled through a 1999 interview I did with homeschooling mother Marty Layne, of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Marty had just written an encouraging and thoughtful...
