You Make the (Book) Rules
In a world where book banning groups, government agencies, schools, and even curriculum companies impose their perspectives on what’s “good” or “bad” and which books are considered “clean” versus “dirty,” homeschooling stands as a beacon of autonomy.
In this talk, we will embark on a journey together to discover a step-by-step process for selecting the perfect books that align with your family’s unique needs, preferences, and educational philosophy. As a homeschooling parent, you have the final say in crafting a literary landscape that resonates with your values.
Get ready to break free from the one-size-fits-all approach and embrace the diversity of perspectives within the homeschooling community. By the end, you’ll feel empowered to make informed decisions that enrich your children’s education while celebrating the individuality of your family’s literary choices. Remember, in the world of homeschooling, everyone’s “book rules” are different, and that’s not just okay—it’s the beauty of the journey!
