Read in December, 2008

I finally finished this book. I was very impressed with the first part of the book which discusses the need for parents to find stress-free ways to educate at home. It is very complimentary to my homeschooling method, Leadership Education, or sometimes called Thomas Jefferson Education (TJED).

I was not as impressed with the success stories placed in the middle to the end of the book. I know there are lots of examples of super-successful home educated students who end up with full-ride scholarships to Standford, but that is not my focus for homeschooling at all. In fact, for me that part is a little stressful. I just want my kids to be happy, well-educated people.

In all I think this is a great book for the new and veteran homeschoolers. For me, it was nice to read some methods of getting rid of stress.
