    Like reading a long blog post with boys of personal advice and information. Okay, but not really what I was looking for. Also, very religious.

    Just a list Now, I'm not sure what I was expecting, but I had the impression that this as book...a story or a conversation with headings and subheadings. I thought it had information about how you can fall into these traps or daily holdups. No, this was a super long list of things she enjoys it things she liked to focus on. So take it as you will, however, as a homeschooling mom 6 years in, I felt this book wasted my time.

    I'm not a big fan of list books or articles, but this one seemed interesting. There were some good ideas but many of them seemed contrived when just living joyfully with your family would do instead of creating family nights and such. Also, many of the "fixes" could have been avoided by not doing the thing that needed fixing. Still a good little book if you're a more school at home type.

    A quick worthwhile read. I have been homeschooling for a dozen years and still found gems here. Thank you to the author for taking the time to look back and make this list of things she wished she knew from day one.

    Would have loved more information about types of homeschooling methods she used. Concise is nice, but some items could have used a bit more elaboration.

    Very helpful! The basic concepts within this book cover every question I've been seeking answers on. From schedules and record-keeping to language arts and math, she covers all the finer points. I was especially grateful for her hints on the importance of and how to find time for myself outside of the home. I'm not religious, so I appreciated her sparse and respectful words of faith or non-faith based alternative resources.

    A Wonderfully Encouraging and Short Read for a dad who is thinking about homeschooling Thank you Traci for a peek into your 20 years of homeschooling. My wife and I are considering the homeschool path for our upcoming kindergartener. I appreciated your humor, honesty and grace. Thanks for writing!

    Concise, direct, relevant This is a quick read and good basic overview of excellent wisdom and advice from a homeschooling mom. Like a memoir of sorts. It is condensed into a very manageable format, cuts to the chase, and offers tons of additional information and ideas to explore further as you consider possibilities for your family. Definitely a reference I will appreciate, as I ask just starting to navigate this path.

    Mostly outstanding advice ... including a lot of things I wish I'd realized years ago. Most of her advice allies to all homeschooling families. About 10% is Christian only. That especially applies to her repeated recommendations too join HSLDA. Their lobbying goes FAR beyond home school issues _ lots of attacks on marriage equality, etc. If you're a liberal or secular home schooler, you almost certainly WON'T want to fund much of their agenda.

    Quick read This was a very quick read that I used to help get over a hump. It did have a few useful tips, on Erin particular is not throwing anything out even if they have graduated.

    This book is short but sweet. I've been homeschooling for 13 years and found this book to be insightful with lots of practical advice for those new to homeschooling and those who are veterans at it.
