Homeschooling Activities
To Make Learning Fun

With 50+ 4-5 star Amazon reviews for my Courageous Homeschooling Handbooks, I can show you homeschooling works and give you support and advice on how to do it with the help of the largest group of homeschooling families ever collected together.

For me, teaching my children at home was the natural choice because that's exactly what my parents did. My homeschool son graduated with cumma cum laude with a First Class degree from Oxford University and my daughter follows an unschooling route and is a talented artist.

O.K. – maybe that makes me a bit biased, but it also gives me the confidence to know that your kids will thrive without school.

The Courageous Homeschooling Handbook with 50+ 4-5 star Amazon reviews brings the largest group of families ever collected together to show how to homeschool successfully.

"Just what I needed to realise I’m not on my own in this journey!" "Soooooo reassuring!" "Grab this book and be inspired!" "Really helpful book."  "Unique question and answer book." "Fantastic information." "Super helpful." "Dynamite." ~Amazon 5 star reviews

Working out how to homeschool feels very daunting when your child's future is at stake.

  • Am I good enough?
  • How am I going to cope with all the subjects?
  • Will my child miss out by not going to school?
  • What about friends?

And then there's the practical problems like what method will you use? How much structure do you need? What about a timetable? Which curriculum is best? (and do you need one?)

There's also the fear that you'll fail your child, especially as most of us aren't qualified teachers. What you need is real-life help to know what works - and what doesn't. You'll find tried and tested ideas to help you homeschool reading, writing, and math as well as help with the particular challenges that come if your child has dyslexia, anxiety and autism.

Nonetheless, it all feels like a leap in the dark – and one where others are only too happy to pounce with critical remarks. Hanging round in the back of your mind will be worries about whether you can do this, what if you let your child down and whether they will get the qualifications they need.

Thankfully, the Courageous Homeschooling Handbooks bring together 4,000 families from my Courageous Homeschooling Facebook support group to offer reassurance, teaching advice and support.

Meanwhile, let's celebrate all that homeschooling offers.

What's clear is that teaching your child at home enables you to achieve the highest academic standards if that's your goal.

More importantly, you have the ability in your hands to sow the seeds for a happy, creative and fulfilled young person.
