Time to Have "The Talk"

Time to Have "The Talk"
When children are young, we shield them from much of our "rated R" world.  But something happens that changes that.....  Your children grow up.  That's when we realize that we need to shelter young children, but discuss with teens. When your children enter their teen years, it's time to begin having "the talk" about social issues, morality, and integrity.  Allow them to see more of the world, and explain to them what you see in the...

Showing Respect to our Children

Showing Respect to our Children
A while ago, a segment of one of my newsletters was plagiarized. I consulted my in-house “lawyer in training” – my son Alex. Whenever I think of our discussion that day, it really warms my heart. On one Sunday, in our “ Love and Respec t” Sunday School class, I think I finally recognized why Alex’s assistance had been so important to me that day. He was defending me – which was showing that he loved...

Nutty Homeschool Parents?

Nutty Homeschool Parents?
After this year’s National Spelling Bee, someone asked me, “What kind of a crazy parent has their child spell nutty words all day?” The great kind of parent!

I have had the privilege of speaking to some parents of magnificently gifted teens. Geography Bee winners, Spelling Bee winners, nationally recognized students with outstanding accomplishments. Each...

Nervous about Homeschooling High School?

Nervous about Homeschooling High School?

Hi Lee, I'm responding to your request for high school graduate postings. When I began homeschooling Aaron in kindergarten, I wasn't sure I could teach the basics, let alone all the way through high school. I was nervous about teaching...

Interested in Movie Thor? Study Norse Mythology in Your Homeschool!
Kids love amazing things.  Unreal, incredible things.  Especially in movies, they LOVE superheros.  Spiderman.  The Incredibles. Batman.  And now Thor. The big news:  Kids love these things. The bad news: Hollywood. The good news:  It can encourage reading. If your child is old enough to see Thor, or if they aren't allowed but are interested, I have a suggestion.  Read books about mythology!

Gifted Education and 100% Homeschooled

Gifted Education and 100% Homeschooled
I was speaking to a mother with struggling learners.  She mentioned how I wouldn't understand because my children are gifted.  I disagree.  It was HARD to have gifted children.  Sleepless nights.  Some tears.  A huge struggle trying to find appropriate curriculum.  I had to find something that would be challenging but not overwhelming, but at the same time it had to be age-appropriate.  It was a huge struggle. Most of my products are geared toward junior...

Transition from Public School to Homeschool Takes Time
The transition from public or private school can take some time.  Even when parents and children are eager to homeschool, the change in attitude may not happen immediately.  In this letter from Kelly, she describes the gradual process in her home.  In a year and a half her son went from "the deadness of school" to sounding independent and happy.  Read what she has to say: Hi, Lee.

SAT Once, Twice, or Three Times Maybe?

SAT Once, Twice, or Three Times Maybe?
How many times should your student take the ACT or SAT?   I recommend once or twice in high school. Hey, Lee- I had a question about the SAT. My son, Evan, did very well on the PSAT this fall (he is a junior). Depending on how well he does on the SAT he could win a National Merit Scholarship. Anyway, we were wondering how often he should take the SAT. He is leaning towards taking it...
