Mary Griffith approaches the most common serious concerns about homeschooling in a light-hearted manner that goes a long way toward making the reader feel comfortable right away. Anyone who has been a new or prospective homeschooler knows how hard it is to feel comfortable in the first stages of investigating something as intimidating as taking on the education of one's children. The first few chapters deal with the initial questions on people's minds: Will it work for me? Will it work for my children? Does it work? As with the rest of the book, those decisions are left to the reader to decide from the practical information provided, and from observations made by homeschoolers enlisted to speak of their own experiences.
