I’m not trying to scare you.  Actually, I guess I am trying to scare you. 

Just try to imagine recreating the last 8 or 9 years of homeschool completely from memory — that’s the kind of horror you’ll face at the end of your child’s high school years if you haven’t bothered to track and measure.  

Which really, really stinks for your student, since you may underestimate something crucial...

Everyone knows homeschooling is personal. It's our business. With few restrictions, we get to choose what we do. And that's the way we like it. On the

"Recently, I wrote about real life high schooling.  I spared no details when talking about how much work it takes and how many boo boos we parents sometimes make along the way.  I wrote that article so you’d know what high schooling really looks like from the inside.  I wrote it because I hate it when homeschoolers are handed some phony tale of hearts and rainbows by some “expert” out to sell an e-book.

Today, I’m going to tell you the part about how high schooling is really fun.  I’m going to tell you how much I have loved doing it.  And I’m going to make sure you understand what an overwhelming privilege it is to get to prepare your very own kids for life."

No matter how hard high schooling may seem at times (or how many mistakes you think you may have made) THIS is the only stuff that really counts when it's over.

You know what, friends? Some #homeschool  days are really, really hard. No use sugar-coating it...it's true.  Today, I'm GUEST POSTING at Vibrant Homeschooling, where I'm sharing a particularly tough day, and what it taught me about my kids, our homeschool -- and most importantly, myself.   #vibranthomeschooling   #hardtimes   #nevergiveup   #QSH  
Even the worst homeschool days and most difficult parenting challenges have valuable lessons to teach. Find out why.

Ever catch yourself comparing your kids to somebody else’s kids? Ever compare your homeschool to someone else’s homeschool?

I’m guessing we’ve all done this a little.  I think it’s because we’re looking for reassurance and a sense of belonging. As parents, we like knowing we’re on the right track.  We find comfort knowing we’re not so totally different that we should be worrying about it.  Am I right?

But, sometimes, comparisons can go too far.  Maybe you know people who make it a habit of comparing themselves to others?

Maybe — that person is you...

If you have a high schooler, and you're not walking around with one of these comprehensive binders at all times (well, maybe not ALL times), you seriously need to get yourself in gear and create one!  

As in, TODAY.  

No joke, this is my #1 high school tip for all homeschool families, I don't care your style or your child's goals during/after high school.

These babies have saved my life so many times, and made my teens look great so many times, for many years.  In fact, recently, I've been carting some of these around in my vehicle as some of my kiddos plan their next adventures.  

Do it quick!  If you want help figuring out what to put inside, let me know.

A common objection to home education is the notion that ordinary parents can't possibly be smart enough, experienced enough or know all the subjects enough to homeschool.  

Ridiculous.  And a HUGE MISUNDERSTANDING of how the process really works!  

Who among us is good at everything?  Does not being expert at every aspect of life prevent us from going from leading successful lives anway?

In this post, I debunk the notion of parents need to know absolutely everything.  I certain don't.  Yet I raised successful, college-ready kids.

History may have been MY weakest subject, but it turns out to be one of my kids' strongest.

Read how that happened...

I'll be honest with you. History isn't one of my strong points. Actually, any study requiring the piecing together of events and examining how they're
