Reviews for From Stressed to Best
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.
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.
