Let's face it, parents can't be experts in every subject. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. Why not use a program that is all laid out for you and is taught by people that either have a passion for that subject or are gifted at teaching that subject? There are quite a few homeschool DVDs out there. Sometimes it's hard to know the good ones from the bad. I've written a page on my site that breaks down the DVDs by subject and list the ones that I would use for my children. Although I wouldn't recommend using DVDs for every subject, using DVDs for several subjects can sure help both the student and the parent. I hope you find this list helpful.
