Book Description

Well-known Catholic homeschooling father John Clark amuses and inspires with his observations on homeschooling and family life, from the joys of teaching to the sorrows of throwing out an entire box of spilled cereal. This is a great read for the homeschooling dad--and also for the homeschooling mom, either to read herself, or to give to her husband.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read for All Catholic Fathers December 2, 2011
Fatherhood is under-rated. And homeschooling fathers are very under-rated. John Clark's latest release, "Who's Got You?" is a nice pick-me-up book for all Catholic fathers out there, homeschooling or otherwise. Sometimes we lose track of the importance of our interactions with our children and our wives. Sometimes we get too caught up in our daily "outside the home" work, and forget about the things that really matter: our family. Clark's book helps bring all the many aspects of our lives down to earth, and shows the importance of all the various activities we do, as fathers, such as taking out the trash, driving errands, putting kids to bed, helping with homework, giving encouragement, coaching or teaching the children, and simply being there when our wives need us most. Once you pick it up, it will be hard to put it down. Written in an easy flowing manner, the book is often humorous at times, and always stays on topic, with a great punchline at the end of each chapter. It's a great read for every Catholic father!

5.0 out of 5 stars Faith, Family, Parenting... and fun to read! November 30, 2011
This is really a great read for parents of all ages. Who's got you? is a group of anecdotal short stories covering every topic that today's modern parent encounters. Although the book is specifically geared toward Catholic parents, there is not a parent out there that will not relate to stories ranging from hilarious to tragic. Clark will make you laugh and cry, but in the end, you'll come out a better person once you know "Who's got YOU?"

The book offers a view into the homeschooling life rarely seen in today's rushed society. As a homeschooling father it is great to see that my little family totaling six is not alone. Thank you John for sharing your path with all of us. Peace be with you and your family.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's believable! November 27, 2012
By Thigby
I'm not just writing this review because I've known the author and his family for more than 20 years and he keeps nagging me to do so. No. I meant to write this review right after I finish reading the book.
It was surprisingly good! And I told him that. I read it thinking, "Hah! I know this family pretty well. I wonder if he's going to make up stuff? Or make it seem like they have the perfect family, etc." But no, he didn't. And maybe that's what makes this book so good. It's like, wow, I can totally relate. I have experiences like that too. Maybe I shouldn't freak out and think that I'm permanently scaring my kids for life by homeschooling them, etc.
Well done, John. If you write another book I will probably ask Lisa to give me a free copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who's Got You May 5, 2012

I found this book earlier this Spring. My initial impression was relief, -- it's a short book and I wasn't sure if I would have the wherewithal to tackle something longer. Also, I'm not a home-schooler, and I didn't know if I'd be interested. In a spare minute, I sat down and began. Immediately, it made me laugh. (GREAT!!) I was hooked! The book is easy to read not only because of the humor, but also because it is broken down into easily digestible segments. Mr. Clark writes about family life with his wife and 9 children. Simple and straightforward. Although not "fancy" or philosophical, Mr. Clark's manner of writing expresses deep insights through the funny stories he tells. His family is obviously the love of his life, and Mr. Clark lets you know, without hitting you over the head with it, that the tie that binds is his strong Catholic faith.
Truly an entertaining and inspiring book.
