Detailed information on Managers of Their Homes
As we finished writing Managers of Their Homes and started editing, we began asking ourselves a question: "Just because scheduling and the principles in this book have worked so well for us and our close friends over the years, how do we know they'll REALLY work for everyone else?" To answer that question, we decided to ask several families (whom we had never met before) to put the book to the test. Teri was on a homeschool e-mail loop for MOMYs (Mothers of Many Young Siblings) and she figured it would be the perfect place to ask for volunteers. What we weren't expecting was the overwhelming response to her inquiry - 24 families asked to be allowed to test the book and kit. We were amazed at the positive feedback these families sent as they used the book. In fact, many of their suggestions, hints, tips, and encouraging notes are listed in the margins of the book. Not only that, but Chapter 16 "Questions and Answers" was also born during that time. Many of the families sample schedules were also listed in the Appendix.
