The moment a mom decides to homeschool, fear inevitably follows. What if I choose the wrong curriculum? What about the gaps in education? How do I schedule everything? What about socialization? What will others think? These and other fears can make us feel uncertain about our decision and steal our peace. Silvia has been listening and talking to homeschool moms for over twenty years and has discovered that like her, they too have struggled with certain fears that have often paralyzed them and made them second guess themselves again and again. In this book, Silvia uncovers the nine top fears homeschool moms face and how to overcome them so that they can enjoy the journey and experience success.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Prospective homeschoolers are parents looking for an alternative to the mainstream educational system for their offspring. But homeschooling children at high school level strikes fear into even the most dedicated of homeschoolers. They need information and answers to their questions. And with the current educational and unemployment problems in South Africa, young people need clear direction and guidance to help them achieve their goals. In addition to exploring the popular ways to gaining a recognised matric certificate outside the formal school system, Homeschooling High School also challenges readers to rethink their values, particularly the value they place on certification, and to consider some unconventional or alternative paths to success. In a clearly presented format, the book includes advice on legal matters, identifying appropriate courses, sourcing study material, tips on entrepreneurship, financing tertiary studies and the testimonies of successful homeshooled graduates. Homeschooling High School is a comprehensive guide to plotting a path through high school and beyond.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book illuminates what must always be at the heart of powerful schooling and authentic learning. Its focus is on free learning, with an emphasis on early East Asian thought as a vehicle through which learning may emerge. The volume describes learning as helping the learner become more conscious, more aware. As such the authors explain how quality learning encompasses all learning that is chosen by the learner. It is non-judgmental and their idea is that if learning is done by choice then direct harm will be mitigated because quality, willed learning is not just about the individual, but includes others — it is community focused as well as self-determined. In the first part of the volume the authors look specifically at how quality willed learning can inform the state and how it can protect the rights of children. The second part looks at what quality willed learning can mean to leaders. In the last part the authors look at what it can mean for teachers and finally what it can mean for the learners themselves.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This intimate, eminently practical memoir of a successful homeschooled family of six children illuminates today’s most exciting choice in education, and shows how it works from cradle to college. What is it that homeschoolers do that the public schools can’t or won’t? There are at least as many answers as there are studies. But nothing can capture the homeschooling experience in all its richness like the story of a real family that homeschools its children in middleclass America. Homeschooling: A Family’s Journey is the perfect book for those millions of Americans who may know someone who homeschools, who may have read about it, thought about it, and wondered whether homeschooling is right for them. Sharing the concerns of committed parents everywhere, authors Gregory and Martine Millman are consistently practical, informed, caring, and no-nonsense in their approach. They pay special attention to homeschooling and college, the economics of home-learning, and how a parent can really handle a child’s full education. Homeschooling opens a window on an exciting, important way of education—and, even more, a way of life—that can make all the difference in your family’s world.

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: 1,0, University of Education Heidelberg, course: Developing Advanced Writing Skills, language: English, abstract: Like a majority of people, the Connollys had never imagined homeschooling as something they would do. But by the time, their daughter Elise entered sixth grade they noticed a personality change. Her grades began to drop - first a little then a lot. The Connollys tried to talk about it with her, but Elise was distant and noncommunicative. When the school year ended, and they received her report card, the Connollys felt disappointed and discouraged about the education of their only daughter. They immediately telephoned the school, but everyone was out for the summer. Consequently, they had to solve the problem on their own. It was difficult because Elise rejected talking about school until she finally gave way to tears. She explained having problems with some of her peers and with the character of some of her teachers. The Connollys felt that there were elements like peer pressure and violence in the school environment they had no control over. The next day, they started to investigate in homeschooling (Caruana 46). According to the sociologist Mitchell Stevens school is "the most central institution of modern life" (15). This means that daily activities or vacations are adjusted and organized around school. Despite this, we can observe a new trend: Parents teach their children at home instead of sending them to a public or a private school. More and more children get educated at home by their parents or, in some cases, by private teachers. Homeschooling exists in many parts of the world, especially in English speaking countries, but this paper focuses on the homeschooling movement in the United States because a majority of homeschooling families can be found there. Homeschoolers are only connected by their interest in homeschooling their children and
