Homeschooling the Challenging Child by Christine Field
In this book, Christine Field discusses how to homeschool a challenging child. What is a challenging child? Essentially, she says that any child who demands special effort or dedication is a challenging child. I like that definition, because many of the children who are held up as examples of the success of homeschooling can be challenging.
There are several things that make this book valuable to homeschoolers. First, Christine Field dispels a lot of myths that seem so prevalent in the homeschooling community. Second, Field dispels the myth that you should not make use of the evaluation services provided by the public school system or the child psychology community. Most importantly, the author dispels the myth that learning disabilities are discipline problems.
