HSHSP Ep 58: Helping Teens in Crisis TimesHSHSP Ep 58: Helping Teens in Crisis Times

No matter what the crisis might be- an internal crisis for a teen, a death of a loved one, a friend with emotional troubles- these things hit teens hard!

Adolescents are at the age that tough times cause their brains to question or become afraid. Sometimes they get quiet, sometimes they get argumentative, but they all need a chance to be supported in loving ways.

Join Sabrina and Vicki for a heartfelt, candid chat about helping teens during a crisis. Sabrina shares from her informal status as a “go-to” mom for many teens. Vicki shares from her formal status as a mental health counselor. Together they have some encouragement for you and your teens if they are facing a crisis.

HSHSP Ep 57 Phys Ed for Homeschool HighschoolHSHSP Ep 57: Phys Ed for Homeschool Highschoolers

Some homeschool highschoolers are born for sports! They love soccer, swimming, baseball or karate. They love working out, jogging and dance. They are the teens who make logging their necessary physical education credits easy!

Then there are the teens who were NOT born for sports. They don’t like group sports, they trip over their feet. They jog like it is torturing them. These homeschool highschoolers have talents in other things. Unfortunately for them, they must earn phys ed credits for graduation.

How does a homeschool mom plan for highschool level phys ed? How do teens earn those mandatory phys ed credits?

Join Sabrina, Vicki and Marilyn for a happy, helpful and healthy chat about phys ed for homeschool highschoolers!

HSHSP Ep 55: What is a Master Portfolio?

HSHSP Ep 55 What is a Master Portfolio?HSHSP Ep 55: What is a Master Portfolio?

In our years helping homeschooling parents successfully document their teens’ highschool years, we regularly find ourselves suggesting: Keep a master portfolio!

Then we regularly get the question: What is a master portfolio?

Master portfolios help keep the most important work of your homeschool highschoolers safely documented in one place. This is good for:

  • Teens who may have a college interview and want to show off their awesome highschool work.
  • Teens who are not college bound, so do not plan to take a standardized test in highschool. Master portfolios help record their good work.
  • Families who like good record keeping.

What goes in a master portfolio? Join Sabrina, Vicki and Kym for a fun and useful chat about the what and how’s of master portfolios.

HSHSP Ep 54: Conquering Crunchtime Craziness

Conquering Crunchtime CrazinessHSHSP Ep 54: Conquering Crunchtime Craziness

Know any homeschool highschoolers who have a tough time managing their time?

  • Overbook themselves?
  • Over amuse themselves?
  • Forget what they are supposed to do until the night before co-op?

Many of us have watched our teens pull all-nighters before their research paper is due for their co-op class, or maybe their history project or lab report.

All-nighters tend to produce under performing teens the next day…also frayed tempers. It is called Crunchtime Craziness.

On the other hand you might know some homeschool moms who fall into the same trap of Crunchtime Craziness.

Want some tips to beat the Crunchtime Craziness?

Join Sabrina, Vicki and Kym for some practical, do-able tips from moms who done craziness and have found some better ways.

Some teens love EVERYTHING! That’s great, but it sure is difficult for them to narrow down career interests.

Sabrina, Vicki and Kym for decades have been coaching, mentoring and/or teaching homeschool highschoolers in the difficult but rewarding narrowing-down process.
