Your book, Homeschooling Your Struggling Learner, has been instrumental in our homeschool journey. A few years ago, I felt like a complete failure and that I had ruined my child. I was desperately browsing the internet and came across your book. It was the exact encouragement that I needed and continues to encourage me when things get tough.

Kathy Kuhl knows the dangers of discouragement and how easily it can set in. Because of her work with children and teens who don’t learn basic disciplines like writing and math easily, Kathy is perfectly equipped to show us and teach us how to interact with students in ways that lift the clouds of doubt and despair. Her insights about how to encourage all students are relevant and her ideas are realistic. She concisely includes important topics that will empower you to successfully encourage even those who no longer believe in themselves. Don’t give up! Read and apply these principles and you’ll be more encouraged, too.

In June 2016, we are giving the book a new cover to better match Encouraging Your Child, and to convey two great ways to stay sane: time alone, and time outdoors relaxing with family.
When you are in need of encouragement and all your friends are busy, a book can give you just what you need to keep going. Kathy Kuhl has written such a book.

Katherine Kuhl is a very gifted person and author. Her words totally resonated with me. Her ideas are practical, doable, and wise. She understands the delicate balance between trying to raise children, educate them, work outside the home, and also care for aging parents. She reminds us that we need to care for ourselves, too, which is mostly lost in the shuffle!
I read Staying Sane as you Homeschool in one sitting, and keep it handy nearby for reference.
~A homeschooling parent in Virginia.
As homeschool moms, we find doubt and frustration are our constant companions. The trouble is that you think you are the only one who struggles. Mrs. Kuhl reminds us that we are not alone as we question our sanity, wonder where our energy went and deal with our daily ups-and-downs.
