Refreshing Practical Approach to Homeschooling  Jul 14, 2008
When I read this book(in just a couple of days), I was both glad and sad at the same time! I was sad because I didn't have this kind of resource 20 years ago when I first started on the home schooling journey! I was glad because Diana's book is like a dear friend sitting down with you for a cup of coffee or tea and sharing the wisdom and experience of being with you in the trenches of home education. She is not someone who preaches from some ivory tower, but who has shared the agony and ecstasy of home schooling. This is a must read for new home educators as well as those who have experienced the "honeymoon is over" syndrome that happens to every family.
Especially helpful are the chapters about setting realistic expectations, dealing with comparing yourself and your children with others, and how to structure your school/schedule according to your style and your students' academic strengths and talents.
homeschooling "must read"  Jul 14, 2008
As I turned the last page of When Homeschooling Gets Tough I was left with two deep impressions. One: Every homeschooling parent should read this book. If you are just beginning the homeschooling journey, put all the books back on the shelf and walk out of the bookstore with this book only! Go home and set as your priority taking some peaceful, private time to read and really soak in what Diana has to tell you. Your homeschool will be much better for it. As a matter of fact, a great new tradition would be setting aside some time to re-read this book before making plans and purchases for each upcoming school year. If you are an experienced homeschooler, please purchase this book as a gift to yourself. The encouragement, advice, and self-reflection embedded in the pages will refresh you and will be an immeasurable help in staying on the path that is right for your family.

My second impression was: Diana! Why didn't you write this book thirteen years ago? I needed it desperately when homeschooling got tough! Very few books would I recommend for all homeschoolers without reservation. Don't deprive yourselves of this excellent, easy read that is drenched with humor, helpful tips, and wisdom.
Maybe a different title?  Feb 14, 2008
I purchased this book as I have reached that stage of the school year when homeschool feels tough. I found Diana Johnson's writing style to be clear and easy to read. The book is not too big, so I read through it within three evenings. However I was left disappointed. I feel this book should be called something like "Organizing Homeschool". There are many good ideas about choosing curriculum, time management and so forth, however there was very little about those really tough days when the children won't comply, everyone feels tired and has winter blues, and mom feels like she is barely hanging on and questions why she is homeschooling. A good book for organization but if you are really struggling you might want to look elsewhere.
