Self Improvement ~ Gift Yourself

I've been to the library quite a bit lately.
I recently checked out a book called
 "The Ultimate Book of Homeschooling Ideas"
500 fun and creative learning activities.
I actually decided on it because the author,
 Linda Dobson, is one of my all time favorite writers
when it comes to home education.
Linda Dobson is a homeschool advocate and successfully homeschooled her 3 children.
She is the author of several books and lives in New York.
The book begins discussing the difference between school mind
 and education mind.
Two very different learning processes.

"Time (freedom and opportunity) + Purpose (intrinsic motivation and interest)
+ Focus On What Is Being Achieved (love and support) = Education

Effort as opposed to a grade (the journey as opposed to the destination)
becomes valuable in it's own right.
Self Improvement!"

Love this book... It's a must read for anyone.
A resource I will consider again and again!
