Are homeschool parents guilty of micro managing our teenagers or being helicopter parents?
Carol Topp shares a workshop she presented at the Great Homeschool Convention in Cincinnati last year in this episode of the Dollars and Sense Show titled, “Were Not Raising Children, We’re Raising Grown Ups.”
Carol discusses the dilemma in society today of sheltering our children too much and for too long so that they are ill equipped for adult life.
