    A Case For Parenting The Dolphin (Not Tiger Mom) Way

    I just accomplished my childhood dream of becoming an author, but my mom won’t be able to read my book. She never went to school, so she can’t read. Because of this, she never hovered over my homework and didn’t even know I applied to medical school when I was 19. She didn’t read any parenting books or blogs either. My mom parented me (and my four siblings) simply with what she felt in her gut was right for her kids and family. Like most parents of her generation and those that came before her, my mom raised her children by looking and listening to her parental intuition. READ MORE

    How Much Time Does Homeschooling Take?

    When I first began to research homeschooling, one of the things I wanted to know more than anything else was how much of a time commitment I would have to make. I found it very difficult to get an answer to this question. Now that we’re beginning our fourth year of home schooling, I understand why.

    The truth is that how much time it takes to home school is different for every family. It’s likely different for every family each school year, maybe even each season. Because I know that others may find this post while doing the same search I did three years ago, the short answer you’re probably seeking is that it takes me about two hours per day, four days per week to home school two children.
