Homeschooling Krishna's Children addresses a full range of relevant topics, including practical details on morning worship, diet, television, discipline, and social life. An extensive section on curriculum forms the core of the book. Learn how to:

• Help your children develop character and devotion
• Create and a curriculum based on Srimad-Bhagavatam
• Make life your children's classroom
• Start a homeschooling co-op in your community
• Navigate the college admissions process

A spiritual education does not have to compromise on academic achievement. This book provides you with the tools to give your children both.
