This time of year always brings about the feelings of awe and thankfulness for the freedoms that we hold dear in this country. Franklin D. Roosevelt listed these Four Freedoms: Freedom of Speech and Expression, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom from Fear .
Homeschool families know these freedoms very well. We express our freedoms by exerting our right to home educate our children. Yet, there are still those things that lurk around the corner as our young children become teens. Today, I'd like to talk to you about the fourth freedom - Freedom from Fear... The fear of high school transcripts!
* Without spending a thin dime on accreditation
* Without using inflexible programs that hamstring your homeschool
* Without beating the joy of learning right out of your child
* And without intimidation by pompous professional educators who insist they know better than you what's right for your family!
As a special bonus, the first 15 who to take advantage of the special offer made during the webinar will receive a printed copy of my book, The Easy Truth About Transcripts, FREE!

I look forward to seeing you on Thursday!
Just finished your webinar "Celebrate Homeschool Freedom." You asked for us to fill out a survey at the end, but the webinar ended abruptly. So, I don't know how to find the survey. At any rate, the webinar was very helpful to me. Your seminars at the OCEAN Network conference were also very encouraging. We're homeschooling our daughters next year, though they've been in public and private schools. Though we've home schooled our little boys, it's quite a change to home educate our 8th grade and High School Senior daughters.
I especially appreciated your recommendation regarding Pre Algebra in High School. My daughter took it her freshman year, but the private school teacher told me it could NOT be counted as a high school math credit. She told me our daughter would need to take 2 maths this year to make up for that. It is very liberating to realize our daughter does not HAVE to do that, since it would be extraordinarily difficult for her. Thank you so much for the information! God bless!

Games for high school students can make learning more fun. Learning through games requires a careful balance of structure and fun (so the kids don't go crazy) and an amount of teen independence (so the mom doesn't go crazy.) Good thing for you, you're reading this just prior to the holidays! A great pre-holiday shopping guide for the teens in your
It can happen overnight. One day your child is pleasant, cooperative, and enthusiastic about learning; the next day, they aren't. This can happen with girls or boys; sometimes it happens at a certain age. Don't feel as if you've done something wrong, because it's common. Motivation of teens, or lack thereof, can be difficult.
You might identify the problem when your
FAFSA stands for "Free Application for Federal Student Aid." It's a form you fill out, much like the 1040 tax forms. Like the tax forms, these are also super-fun and well-written government prose. The US Department of Education requires the FAFSA to receive any government money for college. They mean "free" because it doesn't cost money to apply for the
