"All I want is a college prep DVD program that can reach out and shake them and pour the info into their brain."~ Olga (Traveling Missionary)

We did a little math, a little writing, a little independent unit study of some sort. No, I'm not crazy – hear me out. A balanced summer makes
Every once in a while, I'll run across a parent that says "My child is struggling with a gaming addiction" or other tech-related addiction. Often, these parents will say, "She's very bright, but cannot apply herself because of this issue" or "his behavior has changed so much since he's been using excessive tech." Technology addiction is real. Have you read
When your child has taken homeschool AND public school classes, it's best to create a homeschool transcript that is a summary of ALL educational experiences.
As I explain in my book, Setting the Records Straight you want to be the clearing house, so that the sum of all your child's education is in your single homeschool transcript document. Here are… Read More
