Is your child getting lost in the system, becoming bored, losing his or her natural eagerness to learn? If so, it may be time to take charge of your child’s education—by doing it yourself. The Well-Trained Mind will instruct you, step by step, on how to give your child an academically rigorous, comprehensive education from preschool through high school—one that will train him or her to read, to think, to understand, to be well-rounded and curious about learning. Veteran home educators Susan Wise Bauer and Jessie Wise outline the classical pattern of education called the trivium, which organizes learning around the maturing capacity of the child’s mind and comprises three stages: the elementary school “grammar stage,” when the building blocks of information are absorbed through memorization and rules; the middle school “logic stage,” in which the student begins to think more analytically; and the high-school “rhetoric stage,” where the student learns to write and speak with force and originality. Using this theory as your model, you’ll be able to instruct your child—whether full-time or as a supplement to classroom education—in all levels of reading, writing, history, geography, mathematics, science, foreign languages, rhetoric, logic, art, and music, regardless of your own aptitude in those subjects. Thousands of parents and teachers have already used the detailed book lists and methods described in The Well-Trained Mind to create a truly superior education for the children in their care. This extensively revised fourth edition contains completely updated curricula and book lists, links to an entirely new set of online resources, new material on teaching children with learning challenges, cutting-edge math and sciences recommendations, answers to common questions about home education, and advice on practical matters such as standardized testing, working with your local school board, designing a high-school program, preparing transcripts, and applying to colleges. You do have control over what and how your child learns. The Well-Trained Mind will give you the tools you’ll need to teach your child with confidence and success.

Consider Our Genes Our Foods Our Choice your handheld audit of Food and Nutrition 101, a course that distills current research on the effects of food nutrients on gene expression and health by upkeep of your second genome and second brain-the enteric nervous system. It gives the power of knowledge: how foods and right lifestyle make and shape our body, mind, and behavior. The book provides extraordinary wealth of information on basic nutrients that feed our genes, that help us control diet and reduce weight, and that preserve our health and postpone senescence and death. This book is a great tale of symbiotic human beings whose existence depends on oxygen they breathe, the water they drink, the foods they eat, and the bacteria they have in their gut. In truth humans are creatures of sun, thriving under its energy and its gift of oxygen through plant life. The bacteria come from raw or fermented foods they eat. Its main lesson: human beings must supplement their daily gene expression and methylation diet with a lifestyle rich in exercise, meditation, yoga, sleep, belief, and planned social interactivity. They should protect and preserve their second brain-the enteric nervous system and the second genome-the bacteria in their gut.
