"Never judgmental and not without humor, the [Hardings] intersperse their story with strategies and advice...this fascinating read transcends the Christian homeschool market. Written in an engaging and relaxed style, the book tells how all 12 Hardings have accomplished much, and their account is inspirational and uplifting." (Library Journal)

"Motivated by their Christian faith and dissatisfaction with the lack of personal attention children receive in the classroom...the Hardings chose to homeschool their children -- all 10 of them. [T]he work ethic and family bonding are impressive, as are the children's career successes." (Publishers Weekly)

"Through home schooling, the Hardings were able to attain [their] goals and much more, as evidenced by the success of their children...the methods defined here could work for others willing to buck convention." (Kirkus)

"[T]he Hardings' story is very much one of putting love and family first. They are not pushing their children to overachieve -- they are helping them to find their own unique potential." (BookPage)

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Kitchener (Kip) Harding and Mona Lisa Montoya were high school sweethearts in San Jose, California. Kip asked Mona Lisa to the prom and proposed a few weeks later. After four kids, they decided to turn to homeschooling, and their success paved the way for their children to start college by the age of twelve and go on to great careers in medicine, engineering, architecture, and more. They have been interviewed on CNN, the Today show, and Fox and Friends; featured in The Daily Mail; and covered in several prominent magazines. They live in Montgomery, Alabama, with their ten children.

For Secular Homeschoolers Too 14. Mai 2014
Von shine - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is not a homeschooling how-to guide. This family reverse engineered the college admissions game and made their own efficient path to get there. They eschewed the standard government (public) school path, which would have involved common core standards, long school days of which 80% of the time is wasted, mind-numbing worksheets, and violence for something different.

There is no rule book or standards for homeschooling. People looking for such a thing are on a fools errand, and perhaps missing the point of homeschooling completely. The best homeschooling path involves the parents seeking out the best quality instructional materials and resources, and using them. If something doesn’t work, try something else, just as they explained in the book. One example: the Brainy Bunch used Editor in Chief, which for intellectual homeschoolers is one of those “gems”. Every homeschooler knows that for math, Saxon and Singapore are the best. There are other gems in every category, and have been reviewed in full on Cathy Duffy’s website. This book does not go there, and doesn’t need to because these resources are documented elsewhere.

Instead, the Hardings provide a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the method they iterated over the years to work for their own family. It’s enormously useful in that sense. Young homeschooling families can learn the pitfalls of trying to replicate “school”, what the challenges of homeschooling are, that working parents can homeschool too, and how to hack education so that real learning happens.

I can understand the reviewers who were digging for concrete, specific details about their routine and were disappointed. These details are there, but they exist sporadically, rather than a bulleted list or some other digestible format. Therefore, it’s important to read this book thoroughly. Take your time. Have the internet ready to look up resources.

For all of those who are outraged over their references to religion and becoming a stay-at-home mom, read the book as if you are studying someone else’s culture. Yes, it’s different from yours. Intelligent people don’t get offended. It’s not fair to judge the Hardings for their religious slant or views on feminism. They aren’t stealing; they aren’t hurting anyone. They are raising honest, smart kids who are adding value to our society. Think about it; these people aren’t the enemy.

Great Book, Inspirational Story 8. Mai 2014
Von An American Reader - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I was blown away by this book and the story it tells. The negative reviews seem to be reviewing the family's faith, rather than the book itself. I have four kids (number three is just finishing High School) and wish I had had this book years ago. Not everyone can home school their kids, but there are things in The Brainy Bunch that I will put to work right away.

Highly recommended.

All I can say is wow! 15. Mai 2014

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
We started homeschooling in January of this year for middle and high-school age daughters after GREAT disappointment in our particular public and private schools. This semester has been good for our daughters but also tough as we had to address their educational "holes" and some bad habits that were taught to them by educators, not kidding, I worked at their previous private school. I absolutely devoured this book in 3 days, highlights and all and will refer to it in the future. I had been praying for certain things to help our girls catch up and to like school and learning again, even if school is at home. While I may not agree 100% with everything they did for their children or some of the paths they have chosen, what I was looking for out of this book, I got. I would recommend this book be one of many that you read for different approaches, learning and teaching styles. What I thought homeschool should look like was not what works for my girls, now I know better. Thank you Harding Family for sharing your life with all of us. I appreciate you and your faith.

High on Reporting Results, Short on Method 20. Mai 2014
Von Ron Titus - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
When I saw this title and read its description, I knew I wanted to read it to see the process of how their homeschool worked. The book begins with Mona and Kip presenting multiple valid reasons why they decided to homeschool, introducing their children and talking about the results they have achieved. The results are impressive in regard to their children's achievements. However, I found this book to be more of a "look at the good job we are doing" rather than a book giving advice on the process of homeschooling. The advice Mona and Kip provide are helpful, but very vague. For more practical advice, you would want to consult The Well-trained mind: a guide to classical education at home by Jessie Wise and Susan Bauer or books of this type. Read to get inspired and then dig into the options that work for you!

Just exaclty what I needed to hear...EVERY ONE, PLEASE READ THIS BOOK! 29. Mai 2014
Von Angie Marie - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I am so thankful that the Universe led me to this book. I know I want to homeschool my kids, and my kids (ages 7 & 9) know as well. We tried it for a year and a half, and then went back into the great chaotic abyss (although all well-intentioned people) known as public school. Thank you Kip and Mona Lisa for having the courage and faith to bring us your experience in such an eloquently written way. I am not a Christian, I do not subscribe to any formal or organized religion. I have a sure relationship with Spirit, my/the Higher Power, and instill the same values and morals that Kip and Mona Lisa discuss in the book, in my children, all without labeling it as a religion. I say this to let others know that you don't have to be a member of a religion in order to raise this (the Hardings) type of quality individual. Also, I hope that no one's ego will become offended by all the Christian references, but embrace the underlying message of recognizing and fostering each child's full potential and creative bliss. I am looking forward to getting in touch with the Hardings and getting this homeschool ball rolling again~ the right way this time.
