Is Homeschooling Really For Us? Review & Giveaway!

This question was posed by a frustrated homeschool mom on Facebook.

This booklet is the result of the response given by committed homeschool mom, Beth Cranford.

Her desire was to get past the mindset of "you are a failure if you don't continue to homeschool" and "it's a discipline issue" mentality that often comes up in comments during these types of discussions.

"I don’t want to brush past the struggles and tell a hurting mom that she just
needs to do better in some way. I want to help you deal with the difficulties you’re
experiencing, so that hopefully, you can continue to homeschool. But I also want
to give you permission to make the decision that is truly best for your children,
even if that means school. I hope you won’t make that decision lightly. Something
drew you to homeschooling. Don’t give it up without a fight."

Beth gives some very heart-searching, deep-thinking questions to ponder starting with: "Are you fully convinced through prayer and study, that God wants your family to homeschool."

Obviously, the answer to this question puts everything in perspective!

Among the suggestions, she also encourages the reader to meet with their husband to discuss issues (and gives some practical tips on how to make that meeting run smoothly), and taking a careful look at outsides activities and teaching methods.

Even if you aren't struggling with your homeschool, this booklet can be used to get a "clearer vision for your homeschool" and to "find a level of success to continue your journey."  In other words, a breath of encouragement to help press on for the prize!

You can keep up with Beth on her blog.
