For the Children's Sake

For the Children's Sake: Foundations of Education for Home and SchoolI first read For the Children's Sake by Susan Schaeffer Macaulay about 10 years ago. I recently picked it up again and am really enjoying going through it.

Regardless of the educational decisions your family has made, this book outlines the environment in which a child can flourish. I love the descriptions of rich literature and the results of exposing children to great books. It is so easy to underestimate our children!

Try checking your local library for this classic to put renewed purpose in your parenting.

  1. I've read that book before, it is a good one. I just started reading "For the Family's Sake". I'll let you know how it is.
