I can’t even begin to guess how many times I’ve been asked for homeschooling advice by people first starting out. Their questions usually include queries about money, time management, and how to get started. Although I write this blog and there are thousands of other homeschooling blogs and books, oftentimes busy parents just don’t have the time to sit and research for months and months before starting out, especially if they’re pulling a child out of school in an emergency situation.
LuAnne Turnage, author of On Homeschooling: Ways to Save Time, Money, and Stress When Starting Out, has come up with a valuable solution to that problem by creating a homeschooling resource that is quick and to the point, yet thorough, and can easily be read in one or two sittings.
In this manual, LuAnne covers topics such as:
- What to cover when first starting out
- Free or low-cost, quality homeschooling resources
- Free field trip ideas
- Legalities, and so much more…
I really appreciate the practical advice she provides from her own experience of homeschooling for the past twelve years. In this book, she espouses much of the same guidance I give to newbie homeschoolers, like never asking the school district for homeschool advice, and how important it is to read aloud to your children.
If you are contemplating homeschooling or are first starting out, this is the perfect resource to give you the confidence you need to get started. This book would also be an excellent gift for someone you know who may be beginning their own homeschooling journey.
Deciding to homeschool doesn’t have to be scary or confusing. On Homeschooling is a great tool to give you courage to embark upon one of the most important journeys you’ll ever take!
