 Homeschooling the teenager

As children start maturing into adults, parents feel insecure

about homeschooling. Many parents then discontinue the 

homeschooling process and happily hand over the reign to outside 

authorities. But is this really necessary? Is the strictly 

compartmentalized education provided in schools a better option?

If social concerns are worrying you, look for interest-oriented 

associations, clubs and societies. These offer a lot of support 

for leaders, opportunity for shared experience, and foster a sense 

of belonging. Make up your own group or share this responsibility 

with someone else. Home education support groups provide fantastic 

opportunities to meet your child's needs. This is the best way to 

develop intelligent, self-motivated, healthy and able young 


If the growing burden of some of the higher level Math or Science 

seems to be beyond you, enlist the help of someone who knows more. 

You can even barter your own services and thus save some money. 

With homeschooling becoming more and more popular, support groups 

will have innumerable resources that help you find the right 

teacher for your child. 

The underlying principle that guides homeschooling is this: any 

child has the innate capacity to grow, develop and achieve its 

full potential. All it needs is the right environment and all the 

right answers. Be there to provide these and think twice before 

you turn over this responsibility to a third party.
