By A. L. Hermitt on May 6, 2004
Format: Paperback
Written by the founders of Homeschool.com, "Homeschooling for Success" is the most up to date and complete informational book on homeschooling available. It was printed in 2002, and is filled with un-dated viewpoints and findings that I could really sink my teeth into.
The forward is written by Robert Kiyosaki, author of "Rich Dad, Poor Dad", who reveals that he was homeschooled by his school administrator father after he flunked out of school. This is the kind of information and reassurance I have been looking for. The book starts out with a real life example of what homeschooling can do for a person,as this man is now a famous and successful author and speaker, in spite of how the schools evaluated him.
The authors Rebecca Kochenderfer and Elizabeth Kanna have filled this book with all of the homeschooling resources known to man (also found on their website homeschool.com), as well as insight on learning styles and different kinds of intelligences to help a parent figure out which kind of homeschooling style, would best suite their child.
It gives advice on homeschooling at different age levels, as well as College and Un-college alternatives as well. Most importantly to me, it has a chapter called "Click Learning", which I felt was written especially for my family. My children have been using the computer since they were 18 months and I used it to help each child to read when the schools way merely frustrated them.
Finally the book ends with a chapter on "Why every Parent Should Consider Homeschooling". It was more based on emotional and religious reasons and thus fell short of giving me a good reason to homeschool as I am looking for academic excellence for my children in a loving environment.

This book presented a very nice and not too overwhelming overview of homeschooling. Chapters featured a little something for everyone-from those homeschooling little ones to those removing their older children from school to homeschool them. Full of helpful resources, this book is a good start for anyone considering homeschooling.

I have been homeschooling my 8 year old son for 3 years. I have gotten a lot of criticism from my Grandparents who were leaders in the public education system for their entire careers. It is already overwhelming feeling like your children's education is in your hands, but when you have that on top of negative comments it is just too much.

This book helps build confidence and quiets the negative thoughts running circles in your head. It gives great advice on different styles and takes you from the kindergarten stags through college. I read it in 2 days because I couldn't put it down. It is a definite must read for any homeschooling parent or a parent who is considering homeschooling.

Excellent book! We have been homeschooling for almost 20 years and our resource list could have been taken from this book. However, we are now into the college years and struggling on how to proceed. After following a non-traditional manner, are we just to step right into the traditional world of education? It just didn't make sense. Reading this book has opened up the mental block and provided us with many possible avenues to research and share with our children. I originally read on my Kindle, but have re-ordered a "hardcopy" so that we can pass around!
