From Best to Stressed
From Stressed to Best is one parent’s journey into homeschooling with a child who struggles with mental health. It discusses all homeschool methodologies but focuses specifically on self-led learning as a solution to reduce a child’s anxiety and depression around learning. This best-selling book has educational methods being used in an entire school district in Italy!
Very well written. This is a great book to read if you are thinking about homeschooling your child. Very easy read and it has tons of great resources for homeschoolers.
I really really enjoyed this book. While it’s harrowing in parts it conveys such an important message, that healing is possible, that it’s not too late to change Finding what works for your family through different methods mentioned in this book. The author offers a realistic approach to education that could revolutionize home school.
Great book on how to heal and help children with emotional issues learn. As a parent whose children were denied services and supports in the public school, I needed help repairing the damage and teaching them independence. This book will help you do just that.
The Self Schooling Planner helps parents who would like to facilitate self-led learning as a methodology for secular education. It helps the student focus not just on the academic growth they would like to achieve but also on personal goals as well, resulting in a more whole-person educational approach, where education and self-care are incorporated into one.
Before Mary was a homeschooling best-selling author, she was the owner of a well known gluten-free bakery in Connecticut. After she and her girls were diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2009, she had to dive into the world of gluten-free baking as she was known in the family as the baker of the goods.
After a decade of trial and error, she sat down armed with the knowledge and dedication of knowing what works and what doesn’t work with a copy of the “On Baking” textbook used at Johnson & Wales Culinary School. She reviewed all there was in the book, discussed her findings with one of the top professors there and wrote “Have Your Cake and Eat It, Too!” hoping others will not have to follow the long, and expensive, road to delicious gluten-free baked goods.
During her journey, she decided to recreate 19 culinary school recipes and worked with one of the top chef’s in the U.S. to convert all recipes at the back of the book.
This isn’t just a cookbook, it is science filled gastric delight! If you struggle with baking gluten-free, this book is for you!
