Homeschooling Only One
The one and only book that fits this particular niche in the world of homeschooling parents:
At last—a resource especially for parents of only one child. Conner’s book is part memoir, part guide, and best of all – entirely wisdom. Learn how she homeschooled her son (now an adult) from kindergarten on, transitioned from structured teaching to a more relaxed approach, selected curriculum appropriate for her family, and dealt with the unique challenges of teaching one child in an educational community trending toward large families.
Maybe you have never had more than one child; or maybe all the others have moved on into adulthood and there is only one left at home. Or, you may be new to homeschooling and you are exploring the option to teach your firstborn. Whatever the circumstances, this book will encourage you.
“As an only child myself, I know how lonely it can be growing up without siblings. Donna shows that homeschooling is the best way to teach your child, while making it abundantly clear that in this setting, your child will have no problem being ‘socialized.'”

About the Author
Donna Conner and her husband Glenn live in Texas. Their son was homeschooled from 1995 to 2008. Donna, in their 8th year of homeschooling, was invited by a friend to co-moderate a homeschooling-one fellowship at a book fair. Donna was invigorated that first year (2003)–two workshops in two days with standing room only both days. Energized, she declared she could/should write a book! And then did. Homeschooling Only One came to be virtually the only book available focused on this subgroup of the homeschooling community.
