Editorial Reviews


Robyn Dolan's neat, smart, direct book, The Working Parent'sGuide To Homeschooling, is precisely what it claims.  A fine resource for a family that suddenlyfinds itself homeschooling, for any one of a number of reasons (that shediscusses in her book). 
Ms. Dolan has taken a two-pronged approach to helping thenovice homeschooler get successfully started.1) She has used her own experiences, as well as other homeschoolfamilies that she's familiar with, to paint a compelling picture of the joysand the difficulties of homeschooling.This is a rather up-close, intimate look at the trials and mechanics ofan activity that millions of families in the U.S.alone are moving rapidly toward, or already engaged in.  The up-close-and-personal touch makes theinformation more real, and more approachable than other such books havedone.  2) An information and resourceapproach.  She provides a fair amount oflisted resources for curriculum, homeschooling information (different fromstate to state), as well as ideas the newer homeschooling family can use to getgoing. 
The Working Parent's Guide To Homeschooling provides enoughideas and information, and emotional support (don't underestimate the need fora new homeschooling family taking a great, big gulp at the daunting task beforethem) to set a "newbie" family on the road to homeschoolsuccess.  It's a valuable addition to thegrowing library of information and resources supporting a burgeoning homeschoolmovement.

From the Author

This homeschooling adventure started when my 3 children began coming home with stacks of homework. We would sit down at the kitchen table right after school, take a break for dinner, then struggle to finish up homework that seemed never to have been explained to them during class. Finally, I would fall into my old lazy boy rocker with my first grader and his reading assignment. The next thing I knew, he was waking me up with a despairing "MOM". It didn't take long for me to decide that if I had to be the teacher anyway, I might as well bring them home.
I purchased a pricey curriculum. I gave each child their textbooks and assignments, sat them around the kitchen table and waited for the joy of learning to begin. What I got were blank stares.
Then I met Kate and her 5 energetic homeschoolers. What was their secret? What was I doing wrong? 
With Kate's helpful guidance, we set about the wonderful adventure of exploring literature, history, math and science. Our curriculum no longer cost a fortune. The children could do most of their work on their own, and I had plenty of time to build my business and work a part time job. I felt more balanced than I had in years. Most important of all, my children were learning, and they knew it.
