This book is written from my heart to yours, both to help new homeschoolers get started and to help veteran homeschoolers get some fresh ideas. Includes the popular article entitled, "The Baby is the Lesson!". We all need a little help to keep going, along with some creative ideas, encouragement, and inspiration. Even though I wrote it, I go back and reread it when I wonder if homeschool is really worth the sacrifice. Topics cover social life, schedules that work, child discipline, a rotating academic plan for making sure you cover everything, the value of memorization, best books for read-aloud time, getting kids to do their schoolwork, how to make grammar fun, what to do with your toddler during homeschool time, father's role in the homeschool, dividing up the chores, preparing for college. . . and much more! Unique and essential information.
