Books Tell Stories Reviews: Cheers for "Staying Motivated and Preventing Burnout" Chapter

Homeschooling More Than One ChildWhether you are new to homeschooling or a veteran homeschooler, this book would be one for your bookshelf. This book focuses on the challenges of homeschooling two or more children. Carren Joye, author of A Stay-at-Home Mom's Complete Guide to Playgroups, guides you through homeschooling more than one with everything from picking the right curriculum, schedules, support groups and much more. There are 14 chapters of endless information and resources, giving you the tools as a homeschooling parent to effectively teach your brood.


I have personally been homeschooling 4 for the past 6 years, and only wish I would have had this book as a resource for those beginning years. Maybe it would have saved me a little heartache and stress. Even after 6 years of homeschooling I found this book informative and helpful and plan to put several ideas to use with my own family. One of my favorite chapters was chapter 13 "staying motivated and preventing burnout "; great ideas for making learning fun and sharing special one on one time with each child. This book not only helps families homeschooling more than one child, but it is a great resource for organizing household chores, discipline, cutting expenses, and socialization opportunities.


Overall, a great book to have if you homeschool tiny tots or young adults.
