Both of us having home educated we know that, despite it being the most uplifting thing we ever did, it can also be challenging sometimes. Not necessarily the learning bit, but more those days when you start to wobble and doubt, when the force of the schooling institution and what millions of others are doing suddenly feels overwhelming, when you’re feeling a bit down, or when you forget your original intentions to provide something different for your children that focuses on their rounded development rather than results.
So we thought we’d publish a book to support those moments, to collate the words of encouragement and support I’ve written here and elsewhere over the years into one, immediately accessible, book so you’ve got it to hand for an instant fix. Hope it helps. I know how much I could have done with it at the time just to help me keep on track!
In celebration of its publication I’m hosting an event in Waterstones in Boston, Lincolnshire where I’ll be chatting about my work and answering any questions, so do come along if you’re in the area. It’s on Tuesday 5th July at 7pm. It would be lovely to meet you. And do please share this info around so those who need it, find it. Home educating can feel daunting at times; this is to support you!
