Title: Teach your own

Interesting nodding-head-in-agreement read, but practical-advice-based and very focussed on America before I was born, so not a whole heap of use really. But it’s nice to read books that have me nodding agreement all the way through. Except possibly for the “leaving your school-age child home alone all day regularly” which sits all wrong with me – but then, that was an emergency measure, so not a regular recommendation.

Not, I would say, an essential re-read.
