I quit "teaching" literature in 5th grade and let my daughter pick books (from a list of classic literature) to read with no formal instruction. She enjoyed this approach and has been a voracious reader over the years. After reading Hamlet, she decided she enjoyed Shakespeare's tragedies and comedies and read several of them. At 16, she just took the Analyzing and Interpreting Literature CLEP exam and scored very well. She now has 6 English college credits! I am, however, struggling with teaching my children writing skills. Any help would be appreciated.

Awhile ago I wrote to ask your advice on different writing programs. I chose Write At Home this year, and it is the best academic decision I've made for a long time. It seemed expensive on paper, for 2 students for the full year option, but it figures out to maybe $10 a week. The feedback is great, the writing assignments are interesting, and my kids are thriving. Laura may want to check that out for her daughter.
