by Cynthia Carrier
We homeshooling Moms wear many hats. We often feel pressured to perform and wonder if we can truly do it all. Throw little ones into the mix, and our days can quickly become overwhelming. The Growing Homeschool can help!
As a homeschool Mom, you’ve probably asked yourself some of these questions:
- How do you homeschool older children and adequately nurture your little ones?
- Is it possible to keep a clean house, raise infants and toddlers, homeschool–and more?
- Can you successfully “do it all” and enjoy doing it?
Juggling home management, family, ministry, often work-at-home, and your children’s education is a challenge. When you add infants and toddlers into the mix, things can get downright hectic. The Growing Homeschool can help you not only survive, but thrive!
You will discover the difference between balance and integration, and how to leverage both for maximum effectiveness. Learn from an experienced, but in-the-trenches homeschool mom of eight how to prioritize, develop a workable routine, address the needs of different ages and stages of children, homeschool with greater ease, keep the little ones productively occupied during school time, and—most importantly—continually focus on the things that are of greatest value to God.
The Growing Homeschool is a must-have for any homeschooling mom who is trying to successfully promote academic learning for older children and manage the hustle-and-bustle associated with younger children. Buy it for yourself, or give it as a welcome gift for a homeschool mom of little ones.
View the Table of Contents, and see what Moms are saying about The Growing Homeschool!:
“This book spoke to me in four key areas: 1) what to do with the little ones and not feel like you are ignoring them for hours at a time (not that you really can but sometimes it feels like it), 2) ideas on how to nudge the older ones out of the proverbial academic nest, 3) the concept of integration versus balance–that has created a paradigm shift in my thinking about how I handle my life circumstances–and 4) examples of what it looks like to teach core values no matter the circumstance–even a little baby.”
(Stephanie Buckwalter; author, homeschool mom of five children, and owner of www.busyhomeschooler.com)
“[The Growing Homeschool] was a great book with a lot of sound advice and practical ideas. It was a great encouragement to me… . Even though I have been homeschooling for 17 years and have had many babies during those years, I have had very little support or friends to encourage me and or who have been where I am.”
(Patty H., homeschool mom of 12 children, KY)
“Throughout [ The Growing Homeschool] you will find advice on how to manage your time, a list of activities that toddlers and preschoolers can do while schooling your older children, establishing a routine, keeping spiritual development as the main focus of the homeschool, tips on chores and much more.
“The Growing Homeschool” is a helpful resource for any mom desiring to know how to better integrate her little ones into the homeschool, and to pursue more harmony to their days.”
