    A Wonderful Book!!!

    This was one of the books I read about five years ago that really changed the way we do school. The pressure is off and school is fun again. There may be a few areas where I don't quite agree 100%, but I find that with just about any book. For the most part, I couldn't agree more. It has been very motivating and has improved our homeschool experience.

    I found this book immensely helpful

    This was recommended to me by friend who is home schooling her toddler, not by design but because he initiated it. She is now finding that John Holt's beliefs are not a load of molly coddling rubbish, which was her view when she first read this, before having her child. She is finding that her just 3 yr old is dictating the direction in which he wants to go and is now reading; not because she set out to teach him but because she has answered his questions whenever he wants. This involves some days no interest at all and other days hours of endless query and explanation. She offered to lend me this book because of the trouble I was having with my six year old 1st grader,due to his complete lack of interest in anything to do with school and all the associated excuses complaints etcregarding completing class work and homework. This book described him and explained his behavior to a T. Short of taking him out of school, I now need to read more of his books to address how to tackle my son's style of learning within a school setting if that is possible. But I now recognise that he doesn't have a serious problem or learning disability.
