I read this book to help me change the way I homeschool my boys. I was always rushing them to finish their work so we could move on to other things. I knew I needed to change my approach and was lost in how to do so. This book has changed my view of how to run our homeschool with much less stress, and more fun!
The first thing I noticed was it was short and to the point. Which I LOVED! The author got her point across without giving a bunch of unnecessary information that I find dull in other homeschooling books. She used real stories of her homeschooling adventures to entertain while teaching. The author Durenda Wilson talks of how her faith guided her homeschool and how she leaned on God to help her. I find it inspiring that she shares stories of what worked with each of her eight children she is home educating, how each child has a different need, and that in her 20 years as a homeschool mom she has learned the value of not rushing. She talks about her older children who have already graduated college, how she had to outsource some classes because they weren’t in her wheelhouse. She gives pointers on how to give your homeschool an overhaul and make it not so stressful.
I’d definitely recommend all new and seasoned homeschoolers give this book a read. It reflects how we all want our homeschools ran, and how to achieve it!
