Reviews - What do customers think about Homeschooling the Challenging Child: A Practical Guide?
Christian Perspective Pervasive Throughout Apr 20, 2006
I would not have bought this book if I knew that Christine Field is so incredibly religious. I specifically looked around the internet to find out if the book was written from a Christian perspective, couldn't find a word mentioning God or Christianity, and I thought I was buying a book written objectively. Boy am I sorry I'm stuck trudging through the God this and God that sections to get to anything worth reading. This might be a great book for someone who leans on God for inspiration. It's not the book for me, and I probably won't have the stomach to finish it.

Wish I could give this book 10 stars !!! Mar 8, 2005
I am a homeschooling mom to a bipolar child. While the author homeschools her ADHD child, I still found the information useful. Includes a nice overview of learning disablities with a checklist of symptoms for each. There are also well-organized chapters on discpline, different learning styles, and up-to-date resources in the back of the book. One of my favorite quotes from the book is regarding discpline, "We don't have to make our children feel bad to make them act good."
