Homeschool High School: Driven Crazy by Drivers Ed!

Homeschool High School: Driven Crazy by Drivers Ed!
I remember when I was homeschooling high school.  Sometimes I'd get hung up on ONE small issue that would drive me completely BATTY!  I remember wishing for ANYONE to give me one clear, concise, yes-or-no answer.  One issue I seemed to stress about was driver education.  Wendy asked a question I asked myself years ago!



Hi Lee,
I'm putting together my first transcript and I've seen differing credits (.25/.50)/grades for Drivers Education on samples.  I have to be honest, I guess I hadn't thought of putting it on her transcript and I don't know, it feels like a gimme or fluff  to put it on there.   So I thought I would get your thoughts.  She did complete 24 hours of classroom instruction through a training school.  I signed an affidavit verifying that she drove 50 hours as required by law, but I didn't keep all the dates and minutes she drove before going for her driver's test and she passed her driver's test the first time. Your thoughts? Being driven crazy in Ohio ~ Wendy

Help! My Child Has No Interests!

Help! My Child Has No Interests!

"My child isn't interested in ANYTHING!!!" I hear parents complain that their child has no interests fairly often, especially from those with younger children. Hang in there! It's like children learning to ride a bicycle; they use training wheels for so long, that you think they'll never learn to ride on their own. Then suddenly - they're off! If you are in the "training wheels" stage, what can you do when your child doesn't seem interested in anything?
