Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fairly offensive to anyone not sharing her fanatical Christian views  Feb 10, 2007
This book should have a warning on the cover which states "Most material in this book will offend non-Christians." The author used what could have been a wonderful resource for homeschooling families as a soapbox for her own fanatical religious views.

Because many families do homescool for religious reasons, I have come to expect a religious slant to most books on the subject. Most authors, however, are able to present the material so that their writing is able to relay useful information without infuriating the reader. If I wrote a secular homeschooling guide and ripped apart Christianity the way this author does to non-Christian thinking, I would probably have trouble getting it published and receive bags of Christian hate-mail if it were published.

This one is going out with the recycling as I wouldn't want to subject anyone else. I received no valuable information from this book.
Very disappointed  Jan 12, 2007
I found this book very disappointing. For one thing, the author suggests a creepy method of spanking children, including a chart on the wall of the "discipline" to be administered with a wooden spoon for various offenses. But hey, that's not punishment, maintains the author. If I can't keep my children's interest in the material without hitting them with a spoon, then there is a major problem with the instruction. I'm not going to resell or give this book away. I'm going to throw it out so it doesn't fall into the hands of someone who actually follows her advice.
Not what I was hoping for  Jun 4, 2006
I was looking for advice on how to teach several children while maintaining a clean home. Sadly, this book did not offer such advice. The author uses a live-in housekeeper which is out of our budget. The suggestions she does offer are very generic and not very useful. Not much time is devoted to the scheduling of multiple children. She offers some different schedules from other families, but doesn't really show how you would actually use them.

This book is openly 'Christian'. I am also, but I'm not sure which church she belongs to since many of her beliefs I disagree with. I found myself skipping large portions of the text because it didn't apply to my views or were slightly offensive.

As mentioned by another reviewer, this book is very dated. So many new products are on the market that you really can't use her recommendations. This wouldn't have bothered me if I had been able to cull several good ideas from the rest of the material, but I came away feeling like the book had not been worth my time.

I'm sure the author is a lovely woman and I appreciate her honesty about her life. Yes, homeschooling is great and crazy. I felt like she understood how most of us feel when we go to bed at night with dirty dishes and loads of unclean laundry after having yelled at the kids all day about needing to do their schoolwork. I just wish that she had given me more tools on how to 'overcome it all.' I'll keep looking!
Misleading, on the whole  May 23, 2006
A quote from page 126: "A good steak dinner laced with strychnine is farm more dangerous than a clearly marked bottle, especially if you are hungry."

Anyone hoping this book will help them understand homeschooling should know that it is a pro-spanking, fundamentalist Christian tome and not even clearly Biblical. "Pain does teach!" and "Spanking is not hitting" take it outside the field of homeschooling, and perhaps this site should re-categorize it.
My Inspiration  Mar 25, 2005
When I was a teen my mother attended church with Mrs. Shackleford. From her I first learned that it was possible to homeschool. Since that day it has always been my dream to homeschool.

My husband bought me this as a gift before we were married and I have enjoyed it ever since. I often loan it out to my friends who either homeschool or are thinking of homeschooling.

It is a little dated, as one reviewer pointed out, but so is Aristotle. In other words, it is still a worthy read. It offers some particularly helpful advice for those of us who struggle with being caught between the demands of home and the demands of teaching.

I suggest that every COUPLE who homeschools read this together. It's not just for moms since it gives great advice on how to be a homeschooling FAMILY.

And, just in case she ever reads this...thanks so much, Mrs. Shackleford, you showed me that this is a way of life that is not only possible but also enjoyable and fulfilling.
