I am not a homeschooling parent, but have been reading some about it, and looking forward to that time in parenting!
I read some about Susan Wise Bauer and enjoyed perusing her blog. I did come across a critical post on her curricula, but nevertheless look forward to gleaning much from her books "The Well Trained Mind" and "The Well-Educated Mind."
"I am concerned that her underlying philosophy of Scripture will influence how she writes about ancient history especially." - Rachel Miller
