Overview

Discover the Rewards of Homeschooling Your Teen
·Create unlimited learning on a limited budget
·Discover teaching methods for teens with different learning styles
·Utilize the best resources and technology
·Prepare your teen for college, career, and adult life
The teen years can be the most exciting time in your child's life. He or she is becoming an independent young adult and beginning to make decisions for the future. Yet growing concern about the negative social pressures, safety, and efficiency of our traditional high schools has prompted many parents just like you to teach their teenagers at home. With Homeschooling: The Teen Years as your guide, you'll discover it's not as daunting a task as you've been led to believe. Using real-life stories from dozens of families, this book reveals the secrets of making homeschooling work for you and your teen. You'll discover how to:
·Work with your teen to create a unique, individual learning experience
·Make coursework interesting, challenging, and fun
·Allow your teen to discover the best vocational path, including selecting a college
·Know when your teen has "completed" high school
·And much more!
"Contains three of the most helpful sentences I've ever read on the question of homeschooling: 'Just start.' 'You will make mistakes.' 'No big deal.' What excellent advice! One of the most thoroughly helpful books I've read in years. If you're homeschooling a teenager you'll want—and need—this outstanding book!" — Helen Hegener, managing editor of Home Education Magazine
"Am I crazy? Homeschool my teen? But how do I do it, when should I do it, where do I find information, and is this really a good choice? If this sounds like you, stop shopping and start reading. This book provides insights and solutions to questions from A to Z. Highly recommended!" — Cindy Stanley, sponsor of the Homeschooling for Everyone Conferences
"Lots of practical tips, examples, and help. I loved the smorgasbord of ideas from other homeschooling parents of teens, showing the wide range of ways to learn and excel." — Judith Waite Allee, coauthor of Homeschooling on a Shoestring

    A 'Must Buy' if you plan on homeschooling teenagers!

    This book has it all. Great advice, wonderful resources, an easy read, and it answers all the questions you ever wanted to know about homeschooling your teens. I can't recommend it highly enough. This book is worth it's weight in gold. I will be referring to it for many years.
