Why You Shouldn't be Afraid of High School


You can homeschool high school and I can prove it from scripture!  So don't be afraid!

What’s the most common problem for homeschool parents facing the high school years?  Fear—being afraid that you’ll somehow fail your student, or ruin their future, or not be able to provide what they need to succeed.  Confidence In homeschooling is something we often take for granted during our children’s younger years, but when kids reach 9th grade, all of the sudden parents become scared. But wait!  You’re actually assured in Scripture that you don’t need to be afraid!

Why Not to Be Afraid? 

#1  The love for your child is going to ensure success. Psalm 139:13-16 is the verse that we usually talk about in terms of pro life. Your child was given to you and your family.  Whether you gave birth to that child or not, that child is yours; that child was put into your family. You are the perfect person, and you have what it takes, so you have what you need.

#2  The second scripture is Philippians 4:13, which says “you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.” It doesn’t say that you are capable of all things except homeschool, and it doesn’t say that you’re capable of all things except Calculus. It says that you can do all things, through Christ.

#3  The third scripture is 1 Peter 4:8, which says “above all, love each other deeply because love covers a multitude of sins.” Even though our child has been given to us and even though we’re capable of everything, we still are sinful people who make mistakes. When you know that the love for your child is going to cover any missteps that occur, you’re releasing yourself from being a perfect homeschool parent.  Being perfect is not going to happen, so just be the loving parent that you are.  When missteps occur in your homeschool, this will cover.

Lee,
Thank you for this timely dose of truth and encouragement! I read it with tears running down my cheeks. I can't describe the fear I've felt as high school looms on the horizon. I've homeschooled my children from birth, but my daughter is finishing 8th grade now. For months, I've been busy researching other options and praying for direction, but I'm coming more and more to realize that we need to walk in faith, not fear. Thank you for your wonderful service to us homeschoolers. Your wisdom and guidance are a grace-filled calming influence and help! Thank you!

And in this weak economy, there's another fear: no provision for the future (except maybe the child's fraction of the grocery and utility budgets). Matthew 6:33 and numerous other Scriptures address this, as does Lee's wonderful scholarship-finding service :-)
