Best nonfiction book? What’s in it?
Before the Internet, there was The Home School Source Book, a collection of cool homeschooling ideas and resources.
A few quotes that I like from the congenial husband and wife authors:
“We have never used any form of punishment with our children, and they have never given us an ‘discipline’ problems that couldn’t be resolved with discussion.”
“Our kids always know that we expect only good behavior from them—not because of bribes or threats, but because we know they have no natural desire to break or lie or cheat or steal.”
The authors also note that when it comes to homeschooling, they try not to teach their kids as such, but instead to “spur on” learning, which is welcomed by the kids. They offer appropriate and specific praise rather than flattery.
