- Practical steps to keep your kids motivated and in love with learning
- How to make a homeschool schedule which works for all of you
- How to deal with the potential nightmare of homeschooling high school and the responsibility of motivating kids through exams

- With a homeschool son now going to Oxford University and a daughter following an unschooling route as a talented artist, the author argues that most parents misunderstand what makes young people motivated. This problem becomes particularly acute when it comes to homeschooling high school and the responsibility for getting your children through exams.

Learning to trust your child and accept what they say – even though you may not agree with it – is one of the homeschooling lessons which is hardest to put into practice. Uncovering the five common motivational mistakes made by parents, the book concludes by proving that the academic route is not the only path to homeschooling success.
- Drawing on inspiration from leading educationalists like John Holt, Ken Robinson, Charlotte Mason and Maria Montessori, you will find a wealth of practical help so that you can make homeschooling the best and most fulfilling thing you’ve ever done.
