Homeschooling is a daunting task and it can often feel that the whole world is looking at you.  So, if you're feeling a bit overwhelmed, - join the crowd!

The good news is that I can show you that what's wrong is often nothing to do with how you are teaching your child.

It's about how you feel about yourself.

You can see plenty of advice on here on problems like:

Chances are - you still feel full of worries and doubts!

Because at the heart of all your fears is the fear of failure.

What if I just can't do it?  What if I have to send my child back to school?

And the truth is however much practical homeschool help you get, what's really at the heart of everything is knowing that everything will be alright.

You CAN do this.

If only you could be sure of that, homeschooling would be so much more rewarding, peaceful and relaxing.

Courageous Homeschooling Handbook

The Courageous Homeschooling Handbook is full of reassurance because it is full of advice from parents who have those same fears.  They show you that they know how it feels but actually - everything is going to work out just fine.

And once you start tackling the problem at the heart of your fears you will discover the same for yourself.
