Y’all have got to read this book!

Last year when I first started to research about homeschooling, I got the first edition of this book, The Big Book of Homeschool Ideas, and learned quite a bit from it. I had to grab the second edition and I’m so glad I did!
I even wrote an Amazon review for it, which I never do. It was that good!
Basically, the book is made up of stories and advice from real homeschool moms who are in the trenches daily. Some have been homeschooling for decades while others are fairly new.
When I saw the table of contents, I knew I wanted to read about dual enrollment and college preparation. That’s a big area of anxiety for me because that’s just a big leap!
And then I came across a story from a mom who gave advice to those of us who question our decisions and who may think things would be better if we sent the kids back to school. It literally brought me to tears as she touched on a few things that I have been struggling with these last few months. Not that I want to send the kids back to public school, but some of the other things she struggles with are things that I needed to hear from someone else.
You may not be dealing with the same issues, but this book covers tons of other things like getting dad or grandparents involved with your homeschool, how to deal with anti-homeschool family members, socialization, high school credits, students with special needs, planning and a whole ton of other great topics.
