Publisher's Summary

Giving your child a quality education experience for a life of happiness and purpose is possible - and it only takes four hours a day or less! 

We want our kids to have the best education, but less-than-ideal school environments and concern about our kids' specific needs have parents uncertain about traditional schooling. A trusted homeschool expert with 25 years of experience homeschooling her own eight children, Durenda Wilson offers a better way and promises that you already have what it takes to give your child a healthy, successful future. 

In The Four-Hour School Day, she unpacks the lifelong advantages of home education, both for the health of your family and your child's future. With inspiring stories about parents just like you, she demystifies homeschooling and addresses common fears like, what if I'm not qualified, how can I homeschool as a single parent, and what if I don't have enough time? Packed with encouragement and practical advice, this resource equips you with all the information you need to create a sustainable homeschooling plan customized to your child's needs. 

Wilson will help you to:

  • Work with your child's interests and passions for an enjoyable learning experience
  • Cultivate independent learning in your child so you have more time and your child develops more curiosity
  • Navigate the different schooling stages your child will go through
  • Find an engaged community so that you can start this adventure with all the support you need

Explore the rich and wonderful world of homeschooling because it's not only more doable than you think, but far more beneficial than you can imagine.

Application questions are available in the audiobook companion PDF download. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Amazing Book

Loved the advice and content is very well done. Only thing I would comment about is that it becomes a bit too religious which might not be everyone's cup of tea

Peaceful homeschool

One of the things I love about this books is the gentle reminder that peace is a fruit of the spirit. She talks about unhurried homeschooling, but it looks so much like a fruit of the spirit that has blossomed in her school life. Such a great book, and very inspiring to have peace through our school day.

Excellent homeschooling perspective

This book is well worth the time. Durenda Wilson’s homeschooling perspective is inspired. Her memories of her struggles and successes have encouraged me to continue our family’s homeschooling journey. Durenda’s advice on how to handle homeschooling bumps in the road is so helpful. I Highly recommend this book.

Such an encouragement!

This book is both great at helping you envision what homeschooling in your home could look like as well as practical for answering some of the "nuts and bolts" questions of homeschooling. Great for new and veteran homeschool families.

Simple Ideas for an enriched Homeschool

I enjoyed the simple doable ideas given in this book . It was like sitting down to have coffee with a veteran homeschool mom and gleaning ideas.
The narrator was easy to listen to as well.
