In her fifteen years as a homeschool mom she’s discovered that life with boys is not easy, always creative and often unpredictable.

Meet the Author

Tina Razzell is a happily married mom with three boys and a girl. Originally from England, she now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.

She’s been homeschooling for what seems like forever, and vaguely remembers a life before kids.

It didn’t take her long to realize that homeschooling three boys is not an easy task to undertake. Although she’s been writing about homeschooling for a while, this is her first book.

    Great insight into homeschooling boys

    Tina Razzell experience homeschooling boys is valuable. She presents good reasons why boys may benefit from homeschooling and ideas for successfully doing it. Unfortunately, while this book is packed with good advice, I wish it were longer. Still, you will find valuable ideas and encouragement here. My experience is that many smart parents have figured out that not all boys especially can fit into schools, public or private, While they are smart, clever and more than willing to learn, they can't color in the lines or sit still forever or many other things that female teachers expect. But good homeschooling parents can tap into boys' abilities to successfully homeschool. Read Razzell's book for ideas, insights, and spring boards for your own success. I hope in the next edition that she has a longer bibliography and more resources. That would be helpful.

    Loved this

    I just finished reading Homeschooling Boys and I loved it. The author is very honest and shares the good and the difficult aspects of parenting and homeschooling her 4 children...especially the 3 boys. This is not one of those homeschooling books that you read and feel like you could never attain to the authors goals and standards. This is just another mom, a real mom, who found her way through trial and error and lots of love and time and she shares here what she has discovered through the years.

    Super short and not much meat

    This was not quite what I was expecting. She had some great points and definitely knows boys, but this really was so short and basic that it should have been a free book.
