Join Amy Dingmann, author, speaker, and homeschooling mom of two, as she takes you on her continued journey in The Homeschool Highway: Further Down the Road. Follow along as she drops her tire in a Pothole of Pride. Listen while she explains why you should Bypass the Drive-Thru (that one where you can have everything "your way".) Look on while she checks out the Caravan of Separate Cars and explores the good, bad, and ugly of homeschool co-ops. Join her in declining an invitation to the Homeschool Pity Party, and help scan the horizon to see if there is anyone out there besides Those Women Drivers. Consider her valid reason why the homeschoolers behind you might only hear Blah-Blah-Blah From the Front Seat. Wonder together with her about the struggles in the different stages of homeschooling, From Rear Facing Seats to Shoulder Belts. Turn down the radio and settle in for a healthy debate on the reasons some homeschoolers are Taking Shelter in the Ditch. Finally, pull off to a wayside rest for the night and discuss the wisdom that is found by Looking in the Rearview Mirror.
Goodbye worry, fear, doubt, and guilt.

I started homeschooling because my kids were smart, wiggly, and just plain not very compatible with a traditional classroom. However I still envisioned that they’d be able to do “traditional” schoolwork at home – using text books, work books, and similar methods that I’d used in my own schooling.
What I found was, those methods just don’t work for us! Smart and energetic kids have limited tolerance for repeating of information they already know, and catch on very quickly to new skills, making extensive practice unnecessary most of the time. In addition they were easily bored and frustrated, and basically didn’t learn much when I asked them to sit, read, and write answers on paper.
So, through necessity, I looked for new ways of giving them new skills and knowledge. In this guide you’ll read about what I’ve learned that worked, both in terms of methods and specific resources and curriculum. What you won’t see are the hundreds of dollars of curriculum products we purchased and then couldn’t use, because they just weren’t compatible with my kids learning styles. I hope that by sharing this, you’ll be able to avoid spending time and money on things that won’t work for your kids either!
