Educating the Whole Hearted Child
God did not forget to include "school" in his biblical design for raising children&mdash:home education is a natural expression of all that God intended for parents and their children. Clay and Sally Clarkson's Educating the WholeHearted Child is about rediscovering God's original design for the family. What you'll find in this book is a homeschooling model that makes sense. It's an approach that is based on sound biblical principles of nurture, discipleship, instruction, and learning. Newly revised and significantly expanded, Educating the WholeHearted Child is about much more than homeschooling; it is about life. Effective Christian homeschooling must begin with the sure foundation of a Christian home, and the Clarksons' uncomplicated, common-sense approach to life and learning will provide you with the tools you need to experience God's abundant blessings for your family.

The highest calling for a Christian is discipleship, and Educating the WholeHearted Child is setting parents on this course. -- David Quine "Cornerstone Curriculum"
Our customer reviews
This book contains a strategy for Christian home education which considers all aspects of raising a child within a hierarchical framework. The foundation of the framework is discipleship, and once that is in place adding the three 'r's, oral discussion skills, investigations, and finally discretionary studies. This book will not tell you what, how or when to teach, but does strongly support the Charlotte Mason whole book method without rubbishing other preferences. I found the comparisons between conventional schooling and home education particularly useful as they answer the top four questions we are plagued with: legality, resources, qualifications and socialisation.show moreby Beth Jones
