Starting homeschool is probably the scariest thing you’ll ever do! Drawing on the collective wisdom of over 100 families from across the world, the Courageous Homeschooling Handbook proves that teaching your child at home is the best decision you will ever make.
Sonya Chappell is one of the few 2nd generation families with a homeschool son at Oxford University.
This Handbook covers all the main fears you face when you begin as you struggle with other people’s attitudes, worries about whether you will fail your child, how you can manage to teach everything and the elephant in the room – homeschool socialization.
This invaluable guide will prove to you that the biggest secret to a successful homeschool is motivation. Because when you choose how to homeschool, there’s an elephant in the room. And that’s you. You are the parent. But now you are the teacher too. That is potentially an enormous problem.
Based on unique experience from one of the few 2nd generation families with a homeschool son now at Oxford University, Secrets of Success will show you exactly what you can do in your homeschool to get your kids happy and enthusiastic – and what not to do.
Giving your child the best start in life is something we all have in common, so you will find the advice here applies worldwide whether you call it homeschooling or, as in the UK, home education.
College-Prep Homeschooling: Your Complete Guide to Homeschooling through High School
Chandra Byers is a homeschooling mother of six, and David Byers has a Ph.D. in education and teaches education at the college level. Their oldest is now attending college on a scholarship, after having been homeschooled all her life. With their combination of experience and expertise, they show us how parents can continue to homeschool their children through high school in subjects for which they are not experts. Not only that, but they demonstrate how these home-taught children are fully prepared for college and are often superior performers. Not only has Dr. Byers helped prepare his own homeschooled children for college, but he has seen first-hand how many homeschooled students have done in college. They are both from Nebraska.
