This unique guide provides parents with the information they need to choose a welcoming school or daycare program and suggests steps they can take to advocate for their children. It also highlights the types of questions parents should ask about how their children are faring socially, emotionally, and academically, such as: What can I do to help my child make a smooth transition to a new school?

When a family commits to homeschooling the key thing to remember is that the parent is now the students' role model. This applies to attitude, behavior and organizational habits. It can be very frustrating for all involved when a five-room manhunt must be mounted first thing in the morning in order to locate a textbook or writing implement, therefore organization is key. Make sure teacher's manuals, textbooks, paper, pens and pencils all have their own place in order to avoid starting the day with a scavenger hunt. Remember, the more time spent organizing before the school year, the less time that will be taken away from schooling during the year. Dana Tebow's book helps to bring your homeschooling plan into perspective.
