You Can Homeschool High School and Still Sleep in Heavenly Peace

You Can Homeschool High School and Still Sleep in Heavenly Peace
Panic happens.  Filled with concerns, I would lay in bed and worry about curriculum choices, scheduling conflicts, record keeping problems, and teenage angst.  I'm fairly certain that I'm not alone in my stress about homeschooling high school.  I listen to enough parents when I'm consulting or online to know this is still an issue for parents.  Is this one of those things about "increasing our pain in childbirth?"  Does that pain extend into our child's young...

Rock-a-bye-Baby!
