    Disappointing

    I flipped through this book real quick. A large part of the reading is just individaul people telling their testimonies on how they feel and run their own homeschool. Most of this book is pretty much just plan common sense. I found a much more informative and useful book called Homeschool Your Child For Free. It has loads of resources that any parent would use even if they don't homeschool.

    a great resource.

    a great resource to use if you're contemplating unschooling. clears up many misconceptions and helps give you an idea of how other people make it work for them.
