    better titled the succesful UNSCHOOLING family handbook

    This book is so clearly about unschooling that the title should most definitely be changed. They recommend NO formal instruction whatsoever until 8, 10 even 12 years of age! At the point that formal instruction does begin, they insist only very little drill or workbook work. This book is full of catalyst arguements and written in an extremely condescending fashion. Consider this quote ' When we send our very young children off to school...is there a more pervasive from of child abuse today?' Also, there is no room for discussion of what works and doesn't work. 'The best methods, as represented in this book, bring the best results'. How arrogant! Every child is different and has different responses to different curricula, how ridiculous to assume that the Moore's view of what works is THE best. Stewardship, discipleship and other statements of faith appear regularly. I'm glad that works for the Moore's, but not everyone homeschools for religious reasons and I do not appreciate their idea of religion being force fed me through the pages in this book.

    Well balanced book based on a common sense approach to homeschooling.

    A wonderful place to begin if you are new to homeschooling and want to teach your children at home. I was recommended this book by a business associate who has had great success in homeschooling her children. In essence, it's a book that gives practical advice and insight. It's a guide by which the authors have not only homeschooled their children with great results, but relate many different stories of families from all over who have followed their advice and have succeeded. You are your child's best teacher. It is up to you whether or not you will take that responsibility. The possibilities in this book are endless. When I was done with the book, I knew that without a doubt, I CAN teach my own children and I CAN be a successful teacher for them. I Can do this, and if you want to, so CAN YOU.

    Praise God for this wonderful guidebook!!

    This book is complete common sense backed by years and years of research and knowledge. Praise God for leading this couple to minister to other parents on how to properly raise up our children 'in the way that they should go'. Every child I know who has been raised this way, has flourished and blossomed.

    A Real Lifesaver

    I have homeschooled my children for the past ten years. Five years ago, when my health deteriorated, I was at the point of not knowing if I could continue. After reading this book I not only kept on, but school just kept getting better and better. I would recommend it to anyone who homeschools or is interested in homeschooling.

    weed through it

    This book has alot to offer a homeschooling family. But you will need to weed through all of the Moore's 'opinions'. I do think some of what they say is right on, but they can't expect everyone to just agree because they say so. Plus they can easily offend people in areas related to religion, child training, and house keeping skills. Read it and take the 'good stuff' from it.

    Wonderful book!

    I really like the Moore's philosophy of homeschooling. They recommend we take the pressure off the kids for early academic performance, while at the same time emphasizing human qualities of service and the work ethic. Also included is a section on the importance of household organization -- as a homeschooling parent, I know how vital that is!!
