One of the other reviewers complains that the authors are not really promoting "inspire not require" because if children in the "scholar" phase don't do a certain number of hours of study, you should have them do chores. The chores, however, are not a punishment. Children who are not in the "scholar" phase are expected to be contributing members of the household by doing age-appropriate chores. If they spend their days studying, however, they get a break on their household duties. So the chores aren't a punishment, one of the rewards from deep study is that you are freed from your normal responsibilities. Just like we give our spouses a break when a job or illness means there's less time available to help around the house.
I found it to be inspiring and helpful, but it is not a blue-print, it does not have a curriculum list and the expectation is that you, as the parent, will do a lot of heavy lifting to help your children get the education they deserve to become their best.
If you do read this and feel it's a good fit, come join us in the Facebook group! I am a newbie to all of this and have learned so much from the great men and women in there. Rachel is in there daily and gives great insight and direction. Where else can you talk directly with the creators of an education method? It's pretty awesome and part of her own education as an adult. That's another thing I love about this book and method. As parent, we need to be a big example in continuing our education and in doing good in the world. We need to be mentored and then mentor others to make the world a better place. It jives well with my philosophy that education is a life long persist and most everything I read either exactly described or expanded upon things I already believe about education (things I learned as a student and then an educator). Buy this book. You won't regret it!
