    As a parent of two children with depression and bipolar disorder

    As a parent of two children with depression and bipolar disorder, I debated whether to send my kids to public school or homeschool them several times during their school careers. Being a single mom and the only source of income, it wasn’t possible at the time. However, I did my research thoroughly and still didn’t come up with a portion of the data that author Karen Lange has compiled for her homeschool book. In Homeschool Co-ops 101, Lange offers very valuable advice on how to combine multiple families’ homeschooling styles and goals. As with any group of people, there are always differences of opinion–even with something as important as what and how to teach children. Some families may find certain subjects or activities more important as the focus of their childrens’ education than others. Age, common interests, family schedules, and available time are other important aspects of looking for co-ops to join. After finding a suitable co-op, setting up leadership roles, and figuring out finances and schedules, Lange offers detailed activities, assignments, lesson plans, and resources available. Lange also gives an example of a typical day teaching the co-op and offers her opinion on how the co-op worked for her children.  
    If you plan on homeschooling your children or are simply looking into the possibility, this book should be your guide on finding other families in your area who may be able to assist in giving your child a more well-rounded learning experience. Very well-written book full of tips, ideas, and books that any parent would be able to utilize.
