Do you want to really enjoy your child? Do you want him or her to have the best possible teacher and go to the best possible school?

According to Raymond and Dorothy Moore, that teacher is you, the parent, and that school can be your home. They have prepared this influential book to show how, by using the everyday resources and experiences of your own home environment, you can truly enjoy your child and give him or her a wholesome, first-class education that neither stifles creativity nor hampers character development.

The Moores believe that many education problems—as well as potentially severe damage to family moral and spiritual values—can arise from too much formal school too soon. In Home-Grown Kids they present well-documented evidence for these conclusions, and they urge parents to consider the option of home teaching, especially in the early years. At the same time, they know that many parents must rely on child care and education outside the home, and instead of guilt trips they offer practical suggestions for supplementing a formal school program. Included is a wealth of valuable information on topics such as:

  • stages of development
  • the failing child
  • mixed maturities
  • work experiences
  • dyslexia
  • music lessons
  • non-graded schools
  • slow learners
  • TV threats and temptations
  • reading readiness
  • emotionally disturbed children
  • boredom and hyperactivity
  • scheduling and discipline
  • home schooling and the law
  • plus much more!
