Each of the 18 lessons includes questions and homework assignments to help parents deeply explore the questions and topics discussed. Some of the topics explored include how to get started with home education, childhood development phases, learning styles, and developing a course of study. The lessons are best read in order as they build upon concepts and methods discussed in previous lessons.

Course Introduction

This course is designed to help parents grow in their confidence and know-how on home education. This is not only for parents who have already made the decision to homeschool, but for parents who are considering homeschooling and those who have just started. Even those who view themselves as longtime homeschoolers can benefit by this course as they seek to improve.

Most of the information shared was gained from personal research and experience in homeschooling my own children from birth, more than a decade ago.

Every lesson has been designed to provide enough food for thought for some time, and every lesson has homework for the mom to maximize the learning experience.
