Looking Backward: My Twenty-Five Years as a Homeschooling Mother
In 1975, armed with only a high school education, Joyce Swann made the decision to homeschool her children. Twenty-five years later all ten Swann children had received their master's degrees by age sixteen, and none had ever been enrolled in a traditional classroom.
In this must read for anyone considering homeschooling, Swann shares not only her teaching methods, tips, and advice, she also discusses the illnesses, financial difficulties, and lack of emotional support that made every day a challenge. Ultimately, however, it is her faith and God's grace that kept Swann going when the obstacles seemed insurmountable.
If you have ever considered teaching your children at home, this book is for you.
