"What a wonderful resource! This book could have saved me buckets of frustration had it been around when I began homeschooling. What a gift to any parent who doesn't feel they're up to the task of homeschooling. Instead of sharing yet more 'Super Mom' stories, Terrie addresses real concerns in a way that disarms the fear and boosts the confidence. It is like sharing a cup of tea with the successful, resourceful 'homeschooling friend' you always wished you had."
—Carol Barnier, author of "How To Get Your Child Off the Refrigerator and on to Learning" and "If I'm Diapering A Watermelon Then Where'd I Put the Baby?"
"Terrie's book is a great help for parents who doubt their ability to homeschool. She's right—you CAN do this! Even if you are perfectly ordinary parents with foibles, strengths and weaknesses."
