Hooray! Finally, after years of living only in my head, my very first e-book is complete and officially releases on Monday. It’s called Practical Homeschooling for Real-World Families and is chock full of my best tips for doable homeschooling (translate: ideas that won’t make mom nutty trying to do them).
I think every mom benefits when she has at least a little time for things she enjoys doing. But to find that time, we need to work smart at homeschooling–otherwise it can very easily take up the whole day. And that’s not good for parents or kids.
It can be tricky to find the right balance– the place where you’re getting enough school done to keep everyone moving forward, but not so obsessed with homeschool perfection that nobody’s happy. A huge goal of this book is to help you find that happy place for your family.
What’s in the book?
In Practical Homeschooling, I’ll talk you through selecting curriculum that works for you and share my favorites, including lots of ideas that don’t cost a penny. You’ll learn about homeschooling short-cuts, games for little ones, tips for teaching essay-writing, ways to encourage resistant learners, and even how to create a high school transcript. And along the way, you’ll hear more of my family’s homeschooling story.
What if my kids are in school?
This book also contains tips useful for non-homeschooling families. There are homework helps, ideas for choosing books to suit your kids’ reading level, and lots of tips easily applicable to summer enrichment.

P.S.– Here’s a special deal just for my readers.
Order this week and share about it on social media, and I will send you a sample transcript — just like the one I’ve prepared for my five kids who’ve already graduated. You can fill it in (and modify it) to use for your own children during the high school years. To get the freebie, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, put transcript in the subject line, and tell me where you shared about the book. I will get that sample headed your way!
