Your Complete Guide to Successfully Homeschooling the 13- to 18- Year-Old
by Cafi Cohen
The teen years are when many homeschooling parents start to question or abandon their efforts. It's a precarious time, with challenging academics, pressing social issues, and the prospect of college looming. Parents can now breathe easy: this guide calms the teen-time jitters and even offers hope to those just turning to homeschooling now that their child is about to enter high school.

    This is the first time I have read an example, (your garden walkways story) that described the kind of 'insanity' my husband and I regularly go through!! I don't feel alone anymore!! I'm going to show it to him too! Thank you so much for sharing your story.

    I have recently joined your yahoo discussion group and also find your entire "leaping from the box" site to be a terrific resource!! Your site was my "bible" if you will when I relocated my family over a year ago. I do not know what I would have done if I had not had your advice and resources.

    Thank you sooooo much for your great website. We moved to Alabama in Oct 2007 and I probably would have lost my homeschooling mind without it!

    I just wanted to tell you thank you for your web site. Your site has given me so much information. I had no idea where to start before seeing your web site. I knew about HSLDA and a few other sites but I found my church school through your site. Your site is easy to navigate and the content easily understood. I give out your web site as often as I can. Your on my favorites now. Please continue the good work.

    Dear Karen,
    I found your site through a link on another site. I was so relieved by your article regarding kindergarten. My oldest will be 5 this summer. I was approached by an Indiana virtual charter school(govt funded). We began to fill out the paperwork,but felt uneasy & stopped the process. I have been doing a lot of research. At times I have been overwhelmed by all the products, learning styles, etc. As parents who want to give their children the best education possible your words are a breath of fresh air!

    Dear Karen,
    Thank you for sending along The Writing Well. I read it all; really enjoyed it and wanted to start writing my own stories!!

    May 11, 2003

    Karen, what a delight it was to read of your three mothers! The praise and gratitude expressed made me think of my several mothers, too, though I had only two. It is refreshing to reflect on your mothers' characteristics without a whisper of comparison -- without a word of who was best or worst or winner or loser. You remind me that we can appreciate the best from everyone without constant comparisons. That is refreshing: To love unashamedly the several major influences in your life. To appreciate each individual for her contribution without lessening the contribution of the others. Thank you.
