Viral Learning: Reflections on the Homeschooling Life by Mary Griffith

Homeschool author, Mary Griffith has a new book, Viral Learning: Reflections on the Homeschooling Life

The introduction reads:

Now that active homeschooling was coming to an end for our family, I found myself pondering its long-term effects: How different am I from the person I would have been if I’d not been a homeschooling parent? How have my interests and values changed because of our kids learning at home? How are my kids different from their peers?

Suddenly, after all these years, I realized there was another homeschooling book in my head. But this book isn’t another guide to how to homeschool, nor it it meant to help homeschooling parents survive the empty-nest syndrome.

The book is personal. it’s a reflection on how I (along with a few of my friends) came to homeschooling, how it affected us and our view of the world, and how those changes in us may spark changes around us.
