Homeschooling and Parenting Resources

Hi If you are new to my homeschool and Home education post, Pls read my first post here before proceeding below.

I have had quite a few requests to share my homeschooling resources from friends and this prompted me to include it in my blog. I hope this can help kickstart your homeschooling research as well. I have compiled a list of websites and parenting books for your reading pleasure (not pressure! ; P ). The below are just my personal researched resources and i do not gain anything from these recommendations.

Just a note – I have come to learn and accept the capacity God has apportioned to me and my unique family dynamics as a Yeow family. As we seek His will, i believe my role is to be a stay home mother and educate my children in His ways even after they enter Preschool. May the Lord bless and empower you in your home schooling or home education! Any other useful websites that can benefit others are more than welcome! Just add them to my comment section. If you need any reviews on the books, feel free to drop me a message.

  1. Awesome list! I’m gonna keep a lookout for those books! You know what, it was the book “For the children’s sake” that got me very drawn into homeschooling. Charlotte Mason methods are still my favourite.
