Home schooling should be an essential part of the survival attitude and lifestyle for your family. It’s a great way to encourage independent thought and inquiry.
There’s a helpful article from a back issue of “Backwoods Home Magazine” going all the way back to Issue #41 from September/October, 1996. But it’s still relevant because it gives a good overview of what home schooling is about. And it’s very encouraging.

experience, here are 10 good tips
for homeschooling your children
By Mary Jo Bratton
Are you considering homeschooling your children, but don’t know where to start? The following 10 tips will help answer some of your questions.
Read, read, read
But don’t read too many “This is the way to teach your child” books. You’ll end up confused and convinced that you can’t do it. Instead, read a few “how-to” books and lots of books on world history, philosophy, religion, biology, psychology, literature, and other topics. If you don’t know where to start, go to the library and look up all the children’s books on the subject in which you’re interested. The children’s books will give you an overview, with easy-to-understand explanations that provide a base for more advanced learning.
