How Not to Homeschool (And What to Do Instead)


Homeschooling is now mainstream. Even a few years ago, educating children at home earned suspicion, revulsion, and worried phone calls to social services. Today, homeschooling is met with a nonchalant, "Oh yeah? We're doing that too."


Unfortunately, the new wave of homeschooling brings with it broken learning tools, outdated teaching methods, and a counterproductive vision for what education ought to be. As a result, many homeschooling families find themselves recreating the dysfunctional public school classroom at home, complete with mandatory academic studies, strict grading, and neglect of the child's true gifts and interests.


In Kids Don't Need School, veteran homeschool parents and community leaders Jonathan and Adriana Prescott lay out a radical new approach to home education that empowers children to love learning, build real-world skills, and take charge of their future-all before age twelve. Specifically, the book covers:


  • The untold history of tests and grades
  • What to do about discipline and punishment
  • How to strengthen the parent-child relationship
  • How the traditional classroom steals children's agency
  • What to teach your child at every stage of development
  • Intuitive ways to notice and nurture your child's latent skills
  • How to raise a competent, self-confident, well-adjusted child
  • How to know when to "back off" and let your child self-teach
  • Little-known resources to help your child master any subject quickly


Whether you're seriously considering home education for the first time or you've been doing this for a while, Kids Don't Need School will help you deepen your relationship with your child, build mutual respect in your household, and give your child the elite education they need to succeed in an uncertain world.
