Item Description...
Combining personal reminiscences with practical techniques and advice, an illuminating, firsthand study of homeschooling and its applications shows how it works from infancy through college, discussing such topics as the economics of home-learning, how a parent can really handle a child's full education, and other strategies and concerns. 20,000 first printing.

Publishers Description
This intimate, eminently practical memoir of a successful homeschooled family of six children illuminates todayA's most exciting choice in education, and shows how it works from cradle to college.

What is it that homeschoolers do that the public schools canA't or wonA't? There are at least as many answers as there are studies. But nothing can capture the homeschooling experience in all its richness like the story of a real family that homeschools its children in middleclass America.

Homeschooling: A FamilyA's Journey is the perfect book for those millions of Americans who may know someone who homeschools, who may have read about it, thought about it, and wondered whether homeschooling is right for them. Sharing the concerns of committed parents everywhere, authors Gregory and Martine Millman are consistently practical, informed, caring, and no-nonsense in their approach. They pay special attention to homeschooling and college, the economics of home-learning, and how a parent can really handle a childA's full education.

Homeschooling opens a window on an exciting, important way of educationA-and, even more, a way of lifeA-that can make all the difference in your familyA's world.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great book, great perspective!  Nov 7, 2008
I just finished this book and it was very informational, easy to read and very encouraging. It tells the story of how someone who intended on using the public/private school setting was guided into the world of home schooling. Gregory and Martine Millman do a great job looking back over the journey and conveying it with humbleness and honesty. I highly recommend the book to anyone who wants to learn about home schooling, or who needs some encouragement. I borrowed this from the library, but will be adding it to my home library very soon!
"Our educational goal is to equip our children for the free pursuit of truth through virtue."  Sep 18, 2008
"This," HOMESCHOOLING: A FAMILY'S JOURNEY continues, "is a goal that schools do not and cannot share." So, Gregory and Martine Millman made the decision to teach their six children themselves. These two admitted contrarians believe in the parents making "a perpetual self-gift" of love to their children; they gave (and continue to give) their offspring the commitment of time and attention required to make daily family life itself education. Improvisational teaching moments can come from watching tree surgeons cut branches in the front yard, or from cooking a Burmese meal and reciting Kipling's "Mandalay" at the table, or from traveling to Pompeii to see archeologists continue to excavate the site. A one-income family by choice, the Millmans aren't fixated on conventional "success" -- they say "We have chosen to be free and to educate our children in freedom." Their convictions are grounded in living economically and in the moment. They believe example leaves the most enduring impression on young minds, and they strive to be worthy role models. The Millman parents demonstrate ingenuity and wisdom in the way they teach. They also make prudent use of outside facilities and organizations to extend and enrich their children's social skills and sense of responsibility.

HOMESCHOOLING is the Millman's warm and conversational passing on of their hard-won experience. They provide a loose, common sense guidebook, offering others who may have begun, or wish to begin, this adventure solid advice and ideas, including a chapter on applying to colleges.

Like good teachers, the Millmans tend to review and repeat material throughout the text, and although the book's structure easily absorbs and even practically necessitates the repetition, it can lead to a bit of reader impatience. But that is a very minor drawback. Overall, HOMESCHOOLING is highly recommended, not only to those who might be considering this educational path for their own children, but to the general reader. It was a joy to learn about this down-to-earth, industrious, principled family. 4.5 stars.
~~**~~about much more than homeschooling~~**~~  Sep 1, 2008
This book is about homeschooling, but more than this, it is about life. It is about reflecting on life and critically thinking about how we are moving, as individuals and as families, through it. It is profound, it is funny, and it is difficult to put down- I was up until 3 AM finishing it.
Beautifully written, insightful and inspiring. If you are a homeschooler, or contemplating homeschooling, read this book. If you are not thinking about homeschooling, read this book. It is phenomenal.
