Montessori at Home! does make homeschooling a breeze. It's very easy to follow. One can get started as soon as you get hold of the handbook. A lot of the materials to get you started can really be found in the house. And the kids, they love the activities. I do not find very much resistance. Both Marek and Markus enjoy the rice & water tubs... just a little too much. My challenge lies in taking control. Our homeschool is messier than the examples in the book. They need to train some more on right-away obedience. They do obey, but a lot of times, only when it's convenient to obey! M2 has to work on self-control. And M1 has to be a little less mischievous... which pushes my buttons sometimes. Gentle disciplining sure can be challenging. But over-all I'm less overwhelmed about our homeschooling. Montessori at Home! makes one step one day at a time easier.
