Where to begin and how to continue. . . Homeschooling 101 will help potential and current homeschooling parents caught between a proverbial rock (the expectations of the world when it comes to education) and a hard place (honoring God through the raising and teaching of their children). Veteran homeschool couple Mark and Christine Field write from experience about why homeschooling is best for children and how to make the process a complete success at every step. Chapters include discussions on the uniqueness of each child, practical advice on teaching children of different ages at the same time, the centrality of the Bible in the education process, and approaches to teaching various subjects, and much more.
