*Perfect for when you're getting ready to start planning, but you want to make sure you have all the big picture stuff in place first.
Don't set yourself up for frustration by hanging onto unreasonable expectations or by not doing enough pre-planning legwork to feel solid about what you're doing.
Yet how do you know which perspectives are doable and which will lead to overwhelm?
*Or when you have the plan, but you need common-sense advice to help you work the plan.
There are all these details cropping up that you're having trouble figuring out, or the teen isn't cooperating like you thought they would, or you feel like all-day-every-day is just schoolwork and more schoolwork, stress and more stress, or frustration and more frustration.
Maybe this homeschool high school thing wasn't such a great idea after all?
WAIT. There is help.
What if you had the benefit of someone else's experience?
What if you could sit down with someone who has been there, done that, and ask them all the questions about what you're struggling with?
- About the teen who has a bad attitude and just wants to make friends.
- About how it seems like so much time is spent on school that you don't have the freedom that you thought you would.
- About your state homeschool law and what it means.
- About the looming reality of college, and how will your kid ever handle it?
- About those continuing feelings that you just aren't doing a good job…
