Are You Afraid of the Worst-Case Scenario in Your Homeschool?

Are You Afraid of the Worst-Case Scenario in Your Homeschool?
Are You Afraid of the Worst-Case Scenario in Your Homeschool? Six months before I first started homeschooling, I was stricken with severe dizziness and the doctors did tests to see if I had a brain tumor or multiple sclerosis. As I lay on my spinning-yet-stationary couch, I wondered how I would be able to homeschool in my condition. But knowing the situation in the public school, I was aware that SICK OR NOT, I could still...

PSAT PANIC!!

PSAT PANIC!!
You are not the only one .  Some children are just perfectionists, nervous about tests.  Although no fault of their own, parents feel like they are the only one with a panicky teen. My son isn't feeling confident about taking the PSAT. My question is, does he have to take it? He has been having a hard time since the summer and because he's struggling emotionally, I am not sure it's a good idea for him...

Help! Homeschool High School!!

Help!  Homeschool High School!!
At times in life we are asked to do things which seem impossible.  You may feel like homeschooling high school is one of those things.  I promise that it's NOT impossible, and many homeschoolers have gone before you, but God's promise has a little more weight behind it. Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I...

How do you know you can homeschool high school?

How do you know you can homeschool high school?
God gave you the child you have.  He knew exactly who he was making, even before the child was born.  He knew each child's parents, before the parents were born.  Your child has been placed in your family for a reason; formed in your womb, delivered into your family, with all their days ordained and written down, before we even knew them! Psalm 139:13-16 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my...

God is the Go-To Guy

God is the Go-To Guy
Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you. "Oh No!  High school!  How will I ever figure out what to do, how to teach?  What should I plan on?  Which path do I choose?" Homeschooling parents often look at the teenage years with fear.  I know I felt that way myself.  Fear is a very human emotion - people have experienced...

Do Not Fear!

Do Not Fear!
I remember choosing curriculum, and how concerned I would be about the choices each year.  Was it a good curriculum?  Was it a necessary expense?  Was it the right choice for my children?  It seemed like the curriculum choices I worried about the *MOST* were often the things that were the most successful.  Oh the irony! Looking at the upcoming year can be intimidating even without curriculum choices weighing you down.  How can you get through...

"One Handful" Homeschool
Are you working too hard?  Are you trying to do too much in your homeschool?  Do you have enough margin?

The Downside of Wide Screen TVs

The Downside of Wide Screen TVs
When parents are REALLY anxious about high school, my favorite thing to do is get together.  It takes about three hours talking them "down from the ledge" and explain all the high school issues in one fun coffee klatch.  When I started getting calls from around the country, I took a huge step of faith, and recorded myself giving my 3 hour presentation.  That's how we ended up with the DVD " Preparing to Homeschool High...

High School - Think Early, Think Often!

High School - Think Early, Think Often!
Humans, by nature, tend to fear the unknown. This is particularly true for parents of young students when it comes to homeschooling high school. They will often think: "How could I possibly teach high school level subjects?" They also fear that their decision to homeschool high school will jeopardize their children's future, including college plans. Sometime parents will have themselves so convinced that homeschooling high school is an impossibility that by the time they reach middle...
