The moment a mom decides to homeschool, fear inevitably follows. What if I choose the wrong curriculum? What about the gaps in education? How do I schedule everything? What about socialization? What will others think? These and other fears can make us feel uncertain about our decision and steal our peace. Silvia has been listening and talking to homeschool moms for over twenty years and has discovered that like her, they too have struggled with certain fears that have often paralyzed them and made them second guess themselves again and again. In this book, Silvia uncovers the nine top fears homeschool moms face and how to overcome them so that they can enjoy the journey and experience success.

Declare Your Homeschool Independence "Keep life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness at the center of your homeschool! " Learn why "old-fashioned" homeschooling is still your best bet for growing passionate learners! Homeschool independently and take your life back! Instead of a "one-size-fits-all" assembly-line education, choose the freedome to teach your children at their pace and consistent with your values.

In this book, you will learn: how to identify and eliminate sources of educational dependence, how to regain your peace of mind, andhow to rekindle your children's love of learning. Be a fearless leader! Declare your independence from the public system and rigid classroom structure, so your child's education can be a perfect fit. Here's Why You Need This Book: Homeschooling doesn't end with declaring your independence - it's the beginning of your homeschool life and responsibilities.

Minimize delegation, and resist enrolling, registering, or enlisting in a program. The homeschool lifestyle is at home, shaping and molding your children in your day-to-day interactions. If you aren't home, it becomes more difficult to embrace the lifestyle of learning that enables homeschooling to be more fruitful.

All across the country, in traditional public, public charter, and private schools, entrepreneurial educators are experimenting with the school day and school week. Hybrid Homeschools have students attend traditional classes in a brick-and-mortar school for some part of the week and homeschool for the rest of the week. Some do two days at home and three days at school, others the inverse, and still others split between four days at home or school and one day at the other. This book dives deep into hybrid homeschooling. It describes the history of hybrid homeschooling, the different types of hybrid homeschools operating around the country, and the policies that can both promote and thwart it. At the heart of the book are the stories of hybrid homeschoolers themselves. Based on numerous in-depth interviews, the book tells the story of hybrid homeschooling from both the family and educator perspective.

Find out why homeschooling may be the best choice and discover how to do it in the way that best fits you and your family. I wrote Homeschooling: Why and How because overwhelmed parents kept calling and emailing me with the same questions even though they had read other books and done on-line research. There is so much information everywhere that it can be daunting, and difficult to know where to start. The basics get lost in the chaos of too much information. Homeschooling: Why and How is unique in addressing homeschooling hows and whys in a simple, easy to understand manner. Here are a few of the comments readers have made: ....I read your book and it was the best, most down to earth, easy to follow book on homeschooling I have read." It's amazing what loving and wise words can do. My confidence soared.... I received my book yesterday! I wanted to read all night... I'm enjoying it because 1. It is easy to read & 2. It's encouraging. This book has helped re-ignite a spark of excitement and a sense of confidence that I have made the right decision with my children. Thank you once again for writing such an amazing, eye opening book. Reading your information helped me to realize that my child and I can succeed. .... your book has given me a boost of energy. Gail, I wanted to tell you it did NOT take me this long to read your book; it's just that reading your book was so momentous that it created a beautiful shift in our family. It was a great opportunity for me to read yet another homeschooling book (my seventh), and yours was so powerful and accessible that it seemed to be the catalyst for change...(my daughter) is excited too. She thinks it is extremely "cool" that she can do math in her pajamas. Homeschooling: Why and How is endorsed by teachers, special education specialists, mothers, and children, and most notably, John Taylor Gatto New York State Teacher of the year, three-time Manhattan Teacher of the Year. author of Dumbing Us Down, The Underground History of American Education, Weapons of Mass Instruction, and more. This refreshingly approachable, well-documented homeschooling resource will: *Give you confidence that you can do an excellent job of meeting the educational needs of your child, whether that need is for extra help, extra challenge or a chance to pursue a passion not offered in schools. *Dispel the myth that homeschooled children miss out on positive socialization. *Give you real life stories and examples of the many ways families educate their children and the benefits for their children and their families. *Provide you with many resources and examples of various approaches. Even if you decide not to homeschool your child you can use these to enrich your children's educational experiences outside of the classroom. *Share enough facts about the successes of homeschooled children to convince even the most doubting friend or family member. http: // https: //
