Why I wrote the guide
If you’re reading this, it probably means you’re part of a growing movement of parents who have decided to take a different educational path through life with their children.
It also probably means you’re often having to ride out waves of doubt.
The road less travelled is always bumpier than the one everyone else is walking. Sometimes it can feel exciting and adventurous. Sometimes it can feel like hard work. Sometimes, it can feel almost impossible.
That’s where this little handbook comes in.
You might be feeling alone and unsupported, or like you’re doing the wrong thing by your child, or that you aren’t qualified to take on the challenge you’ve committed to…whatever it is, know that I’ve chosen the posts I have for this guide because they’re the ones I’ve needed the most in my own home education life journey.
My hope is that they’ll bring you the same kind of comfort they gave me as I wrote them.
