Haskins really makes you feel relaxed about your decision and lets you know that there is no mold to a homeschool family. Homeschooling can be done many different ways. She addresses all the main homeschool arguments like: socialization, relationships, and extracurricular activities. She also has very helpful advice for academics and gives you a chart to fill out to see what kind of learning technique might work best for your family.

As a homeschooling mother of three I found her book to be very enlightening, helpful and funny. She has some great ideas and covers all her bases as to what kinds of things you might come across as you homeschool.

I highly recommend this book for those who think they might want to homeschool. It’s a small book with a lot of information and will answer some of the most basic questions and get you on the right road to whatever works best for your family.
