Most Helpful Customer Reviews
At first I was thrown by the heavy emphasis of Christian doctrine, but the author does a great job of describing how to balance homeschooling with a healthy family life.
I am a veteran home-schooler (18 years) and really wasn't too interested in reading yet another book on home education. When I picked up Christine Field's book, Help for the Harried Homeschooler, intending to give it a cursory once-over, I could not put it down! It's loaded with practical ideas made more interesting by using anecdotes from REAL people; and also contains excellent philosophical foundations that would help any home schooling family gain a sound footing. This is one of the best (of MANY) books I have read on the subject. It is definitely one I will recommend and loan to my homeschooling friends. I consider it a 'must have' in my library.
I got an advance copy of this book, and as a veteran homeschooler I found myself repeating 'Yes, yes' as I read. Mrs. Field has collected a wide range of experiences and combined them with her own to produce a very informative book. She comments on many other sources of information, making her book a very good place to start if you are exploring homeschooling. If you are already homeschooling and have reached burnout stage, this book is a 'must-buy.'
