Before I had children, I admired parents who home schooled their children. It is something that I wanted to do for my (eventual, at the time) children, but did not know if we would be able. Once Hannah was born on April 8, 2004, home schooling her and our future children weighed more and more on our minds. In time, my wife and I became convinced together that home schooling was the right choice for us. That my wife and I had the same conviction was essential. As the primary teacher, my wife had ...more

There are two main problems with this book.

1) Over half of the book (more than 200 pages) focuses on UN treaties, social workers, many historical legal cases, political action, etc. Goodness, there were over 60 pages just on social workers!

Have you ever asked yourself why anyone would homeschool? Well then this is the book for you. I had a friend that was doing a report in college on homeschooling. In the beginning they were anti-homeschooling. After reading this book, and doing additional study they were pro-homeschooling. We all know some people who homeschool. Reading this book might help you understand the reasons a typical parent might choose homeschooling. And understanding is always a good thing.

I was only merely leaning toward homeschooling before I read this book. This book made me so much more sure of my decision...we begin homeschool in the fall.
