Teen Boys Who Hate School – MBFLP 178

teen boys who hate school

 

Long ago, we noticed a revolving door at the eighth grade – parents who homeschooled their children from the beginning putting their kids into the school system, and public school parents pulling their kids out of the very same pipeline. Maybe the problem isn’t the school, but the student! This episode we talk about early teens who get restless and uncooperative about schoolwork, and some strategies to help everyone get through this struggle!

HSHSP Ep 66: Preparing Middle Schoolers for High School

 

This week on HSHSP Ep 66: Preparing Middle Schoolers for High School.

HSHSP Ep 66: Preparing Middle Schoolers for High School What life and study skills do middle schoolers need in preparing for highschool?

Preparing Middle Schoolers for High School

Are you preparing middle schoolers for high school? Are they ready for the rigors of high-school level studies? Feeling stressed about it?

Never fear! HSHSP is here to help. With years of homeschooling middle school AND high school we have discovered a few REALLY helpful tips!

Some parents get SO stressed out about the high school years. They fearfully ask themselves: Can our tween do high-school level academics? Should we make our tween jump ahead to high-school level textbooks?

You know what we tell those parents? WHEN your tween is a teen and is IN high school, they will be developmentally ready for high school academics. While some middle schoolers are advanced academically, most are not. Why push an average-level tween to do super difficult academics? That’s a recipe for burnout!

Rather than push your middle schooler before they are ready for high-school academics, think about this:

One of the surprising things we’ve learned is that high schoolers need life skills and study skills that are a bit more complex than they needed in middle school. If they begin working on those during middle school, they won’t need to play catch up while they are trying to keep up with their academics.

THAT’S important stuff middle schoolers can do to prepare for high school.

Join Sabrina and Marilyn for an important episode on life skills and study skills that middle schoolers need when preparing for high school!

Homeschooling Multiple Ages – HIRL Episode 108

HIRL-Episode-108

How does a homeschooling parent possibly educate older kids while at the same time juggling preschoolers, toddlers, and babies? Is it even realistic to think we could do a good job while spinning so many homeschool plates?

On this episode of Homeschooling in Real Life, Fletch and Kendra talk about how they’ve managed to homeschool 8 kids, how to structure a day so that schooling actually gets done, and how mom can survive and thrive during the demanding years of homeschooling multiple ages.
