I have ordered 2 books from Amazon.com to help me further explore the option of Homeschooling. I must say that you all's input on my previous 2 questions have really gotten me seriously considering doing it. Isn't it sad that I don't want anyone in my family to know that I am even considering it!? My SIL once said, "don't even think of homeschooling your kids, they turn out weird." Anyway,

here's what I've odered:

"So - Why Do You Homeschool?" by Mimi Davis

"Family Matters: Why Homeschooling Makes Sense"
David Guterson

Anyone familiar with either or have any other suggestions for me to read?

THANKS again!

I love "So You're Thinking About Homeschooling" by Lisa Whelchel and "Home Sweet HomeSchool" by Jan Maakestad. They're both quite inspiring and are easy reads! (something I always look for in a book!)

ETA: I'm laughing about the "Your kids will turn out weird" comment!! That is such a common thing for people to think about homeschooled kids! And, also, like PS kids all turn out perfectly normal?

Really....I only know of a few adults around me who were homeschooled...and I have to say my PS'd adult friends and family are stranger to me. But maybe that is because I am in the weird club?
