Helping them start to make decisions about what they want to learn in middle school as preparation for high school. My 8th grader designed her own science curriculum this year, combining her love of history with science so she would enjoy it more, and learn more. Hoping to guide them to doing more of this for a successful high school experience!
Lee you are right on target as usual! ;-)
I would have to say that character traits and work ethic are possibly even MORE important than the academics! If you can't trust your child to do what they need to do (and working toward becoming an independent adult) it's a struggle for the parent. Also, learning how to schedule and pace their work is also a biggie!

I have two teenagers and three more rising through the grades. I love your article. It is a great reminder to stay on point and perfect timing as we are gearing up to intensify our fall studies. Thanks!
My husband unexpectedly announced, "We need new cookware" and brought home the Circulon Premier Professional 13-piece Hard-anodized Cookware Set. It's been a great investment!

Anyone can take an AP test, even if they have not taken an AP course. The tests are really hard, really long, and the student needs to be prepared.
