HSHSP Ep 40 New Years UNresolutions

Homeschool moms and highschoolers:

Guilt gotcha every January? About 3 weeks in the New Years resolutions gone caput?

How about UNresolutions this year?

Unresolutions are ways to start fresh, do-over, try new things without the pressure of a resolutions you know you’ll break.

Mom say things like:

*”My kids will never be behind in math this year.”

*”My house will always be organized.”

Teens say things like:

*”I will always have a good attitude.”

*”I’ll get my research paper done in 2 weeks.”

UNrealistic resolutions don’t get results! Let’s try some UNresolutions!

What if you or a family you know has experienced: illness, divorce, financial or family loss, or other difficult situation?

While we believe that ALL teens are gifted by God in some way, some homeschool highschoolers are “gifted” in intelligence.

They are bright, academically-driven and have different needs than a more average academian.

These gifted teens need to be ready for a competitive college. They need to stretch themselves academically and strengthen their soft skills.

Barb’s daughters homeschooled all the way through highschool graduation and have gone on to powerful college degrees. You’ll get great tips from a mom who knows!
