Homeschool Mom Universal Translator (HMUT)

Homeschool Mom Universal Translator (HMUT)
Hi there, Mr. HomeScholar here... It has come to my attention that homeschool dads will sometimes struggle understanding their wives.  Lee asked me to help explain the homeschool mom perspective to the dads out there. As a public service, I wanted to share my Homeschool Mom Universal Translator with your husband.  Could you please pass this on to him?  Consider it my gift to you. You might want to print this out and keep it in...

Update: Children Grow Up and Leave Home

Update: Children Grow Up and Leave Home
People have been asking me for an update on my kids.  My boys are all grown up - they are men now and not boys anymore.  I could give you an update, but really, I want to give you more of a warning. Children grow up. They leave home. They stop leaving messes. The other day my kids came over.  I needed an excuse to make cookies, but I also made them dinner and we all watched a movie together....

New to All This!

New to All This!
I'll admit it.  Sometimes parents ask BIG questions on Facebook, and it's hard to answer in a short paragraph.  If you only had a few sentences, how would you answer this new homeschool mom? Posted on The HomeScholar Fan Page : My daughter has been in a Classical Christian school since Kindergarten. She is now going into 7th grade and we want to home school her. She is so sick and tired of filling in work...

Homeschool Moms & Dads: Reinvest in YOU! Join Me at the WHO Convention June 17-18, 2011

Homeschool Moms & Dads: Reinvest in YOU! Join Me at the WHO Convention June 17-18, 2011
It's time for another homeschool convention! The smell of curricula still brings back memories of homeschooling our two sons. The part of homeschool conventions that I enjoy most is seeing the faces of moms and dads as they reinvest in themselves. We need to remember that just as we invest in our children through their education so should we invest in our own knowledge as we homeschool the high school years. You'll find yourself refreshed and...

Nervous about Homeschooling High School?

Nervous about Homeschooling High School?
Not everyone feels confident about homeschooling.  Shannon was nervous when she started, but I'd say it ended up pretty well for her and her son, Aaron.  Read Shannon's story - I know it will encourage you! 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...

Preparing Homeschool Records & Transcripts Early
Mary graduated her son this year and was EXTREMELY successful as a homeschool parent.  Still, she confesses that the job would have been much easier and less exhausting had she done the work before senior year.  Here is Mary's story: Hi Lee!!! Haven't contacted you since my senior, Bryan, was accepted into the University of North Carolina School of the Arts in April!  The School of Filmmaking is a fairly exclusive program and I am so...

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...

January Homeschool Burnout

January Homeschool Burnout
January is a tough time for everyone.  I was chatting online with a mom who is facing some family challenges. Hi Lee, I remember the article or blog you had saying that January was a difficult month. With so much going on in my life I am amazed we have gotten anything done but I feel like we are doing the minimum if anything. It has gotten as boring as public school to them. The field...
