I will show you workable, personalized, and powerful education options that build on your children’s strengths in Starting to Homeschool with Pat Farenga, a series of videos, reading materials, and online support. I will share my 34-plus years of fieldwork, advocacy (I published Growing Without Schooling magazine from 1986 to 2001), and personal experience (we homeschooled our three daughters) to help you and your children learn in their own ways. Over the course of six, one-hour presentations I describe a flexible, vibrant, and social way to learn at home and in your community. John Holt’s ideas and work imbue my efforts with a nonsectarian, practical approach to living and learning with children.
