Reviews and Mentions:
Readers of Suki Wessling’s From School to Homeschool will appreciate her candor in telling her personal homeschooling story as the parent of two very different gifted children. Her advice to think about whether homeschooling is a good option for now is especially important for parents who come to home education reluctantly because school isn’t working for their children.
- Lisa Rivero, author of Creative Homeschooling for Gifted Children
Children don’t belong in a box—either a literal or figurative one. Suki Wessling’s superb new book will equip you to plot your gifted child’s escape, opening up an entirely new world for you and your family.
- David H. Albert, author of Dismantling the Inner School
Both as parents of gifted homeschoolers and as professionals who work with homeschooling families, we heartily recommend this outstanding book for anyone thinking about or involved in homeschooling a gifted child. Wessling raises all the right questions and answers them with practical advice that will help parents decide whether homeschooling is right for their family, as well as how to go about it.
