Home Schooling: How To Motivate Your Child by second generation homeschool author, Sonya Chappell
About the Author
Sonya is one of the few second generation homeschooling families taught at home herself. She loved being homeschooled so much that when it came to having her own children the whole idea of sending them to school seemed completely unnatural. Her son William, is now going to Oxford University and her daughter Catherine, is still at home following an unschooling route as a talented artist. Sonya set up her website at homeschool-activities.com so she could give parents the confidence to see that homeschooling offers a wonderful opportunity for all children to achieve their full potential and keep learning fun.
Sonya also runs her own FREE online course which is emailed daily, takes 5-10 mins and is very thought provoking. I did it earlier this year and it is great for confidence boosting and supporting your decision to home educate. I definitely recommend doing this course, recommended to both new families and also those that have been home schooling for a while.
About the Book
Homeschool Secrets Of Success
This indispensable guide will prove to you that the biggest secret to a successful homeschool is motivation. Because when you choose how to homeschool, there is an elephant in the room. And that’s you. You are the parent. But now you are the teacher too. That is potentially an enormous problem on the motivation front.
Picture this: What happens when you end up in lots of battles with the kids? The kids aren’t interested. They don’t want to learn. You are tearing your hair out. This is their future …Can’t they realize that? What if they don’t get any exams or qualifications? They will have failed. And you will have failed too.
This guide shows you exactly what things you can do in your homeschool to get your kids happy and enthusiastic – and what not to do.
