You worry that you're 'doing it wrong' and that, as a result, your child won't get into college, won't have good social skills, or will be disadvantaged in life as an adult
You homeschool because you know 'one size fits all' isn't the best way for children to learn, but you feel frustrated that so much homeschooling material is essentially fill-in-the-blank worksheets and rote learning. You desperately want your child to love learning, but every day is a struggle to get any work completed. It feels like pulling teeth.
You’re laboring under what we call the “tyranny of school.” Somehow, the power of school is so strong that it reaches into the home! Despite our best efforts to escape it, the programming of mainstream school has many parents replicating the exact conditions that caused them to keep their children out of school in the first place.
You believe you have to be an expert in every subject and skill, somehow becoming a French, math, science, language arts, and PE teacher all in one! The truth is that with the right combination of enrichment activities and learning experiences, your child can learn from the experts — and you don’t have to be an expert in everything.
You haven’t co-created learning with your child, so they feel like school is being imposed on them, even at home.

- Becoming a self-aware learner, so you gain the tools for you to help your child become aware of their learning – and your child becomes an independent and self-directed learner
- What did you learn today? You and your child can answer this question with confidence and clarity by following the documenting process.
- Different ways of documenting, so you and your child can capture all the wonderful learning while building a portfolio to see personal success.

Homeschooling can be difficult and overwhelming. Going against the grain in general can be the harder choice. Rocco and Tania have a solid foundation and a supportive structure that can help many parents navigate an, often confusing, educational path with their children. It's perfect to have two parents with deep knowledge of education - both formal and informal - meaningfully teaching other families how to homeschool.Dr. Carol Nash
"Choosing to take control of my children’s education was both exciting and daunting. Do I know enough? Am I patient enough? Am I enough? Big questions and worries that can make anyone decide to stick with the mainstream. The early years of unschooling felt manageable but as we've transitioned into the teen years Rocco has been able to provide insight and support around self-directed learning from his extensive experience and research. He has an ability to assure you to trust the process (and the kids!), to look deeper at the learning happening and to see the bigger picture. Being able to reach out to another alternative thinker has been both grounding and reaffirming."Kristina House
