Homeschooling for the Rest of Us by Sonya Haskins

Book Review - Homeschooling for the Rest of Us by Sonya Haskins

Publisher - Bethany House

Pages - 176

Official Description from Bethany House:

Wonder how others do it all?
Not sure you're cut out for homeschooling?
"It's time to break a myth: Homeschooling families aren't perfect. In fact, real-life families like yours can be--and are--successful homeschoolers! That's the life message of Sonya Haskins, who is dedicated to helping everyday families meet the challenges of home education and enjoy its countless benefits." 

My Thoughts:

Sonya Haskins lives in Tennessee with her husband and five children. She has also been a foster parent for many years. She is a homeschooling consultant and shares lot of fun and helpful infomation on her website,

Her latest book, Homeschooling for the Rest of Us, is Christian-based and refreshing! If you are tired of reading about homeschoolers making it to Harvard and want to know how normal families homeschool, then you'll love this book as much as I do! Here's some of what you'll find inside:

1. Pressure and Perfection.
2. Routines and Schedules. (Her lists include a variety of possible family scenarios.)
3. Homeschooling on a Budget.
4. Following your own Path.
5. Living in a (Very) messy house.

Sampling of key points she covers:

1. How to evaluate discouraging comments from others.
2.  Information about co-ops.
3. Evaluating different options in education.
4. Making children responsible for their own learning. 

I've read a variety of books about homeschooling, but this one is my favorite.
