Whether you’re just starting out or are already a seasoned homeschooler, discouragement hits us all at one point or another. We all doubt our decisions, worry about curriculum choices, and have moments of sheer panic. The inner voice asks, "What am I doing? This is crazy! I can't educate my children at home!" Or maybe that voice screams out in frustration, "I'm utterly spent. I can't take one more minute of confusing fractions, tedious read alouds, or messy science experiments!"Sometimes all we want is simply a proper dining room instead of a cluttered, homeschool disaster area where the table used to be.On the worst of days, we have all looked longingly at the flashing lights of a yellow bus and considered —for one brief moment —putting our kids on it.These negative feelings about homeschooling are the genesis of this book. Despite our very real feelings of wanting to quit, we, the bloggers of iHomeschool Network, have persisted in the path of educating at home. And we can tell you that it is worth pushing through the stress, exhaustion, and fear.This book addresses nearly every potential frustration point that a homeschool mom faces. We tackle the irritations that make you want to throw in the towel for good:**having toddlers and babies along for the ride**working from home while homeschooling**high school!**feeling under-appreciated**feeling inadequate as a teacher**having your own emotional meltdowns**handling things solo as a single mom or one whose husband is frequently away from home**raising a special needs child**dealing with a family crisis, job loss, or a move**being burned out**feeling the criticism of others, maybe even family members or your own husband**being totally unorganized with school record keeping**living in a messy, chaotic, loud house

Do you know a child who struggles to pay attention? To communicate with other children or adults? To manage their highly sensitive feelings? To show the “right” emotions? Do you worry that life is going to be hard for this child… forever? More children today are being diagnosed with developmental delays, anxiety disorders, and social emotional issues than ever before. And children today are facing more challenges than ever before—social, emotional, even spiritual challenges—yet society and our present educational system are still looking at our children through the lens of an old paradigm that honors intellectual gifts and physical talents, above all else.But what if nothing is wrong with our children? What if our children are simply more sensitive, intuitive, empathic, connected to their own inner worlds? What if our highly sensitive children are the greatest gift to our world, if only we would unwrap their gifts?Our children are not broken. Our children have a beautiful gift of resilience and empathy. If only we knew how to truly see them. Most of us (parents, educators, specialists), we focus on outside forces and circumstances. We so easily get wrapped up in seeing only a sensitive child, a learning disability, a sensory processing disorder, a social anxiety, or simply a tendency to be a bit different.No Child Left Unwrapped challenges us to look at our children differently than we ever have before. Our society is based on an old paradigm that is no longer serving our children and youth of today. It’s time for us to help our children discover their unique awesomeness because every child is born with beautiful gifts that are meant to be unwrapped and shared with the world.
