A Good Book
I am almost done reading For the Children's Sake and I highly recommend it! It is full of wonderful new ways to look at education. The ideas presented apply to any type of education...homeschool, public school, private school, or Christian school.
My favorite part was more about parenting than education. Chapter 3 is entitled "Authority and Freedom". It was exactly what I needed to hear right now. There are used copies on Amazon for 71 cents (plus 3.99 shipping) so head on over there and get this book! But, before you do, I will leave you with this quote:
"Within the family, the child is not a 'job,' he is a friend."
