 I am coming more and more to the point where most of my kids are of the older variety and I am wondering if any of you moms have older children and what and how you teach them?  I am looking to see what other parents teach in school, how long they are in school.  Maybe find some new websites to utilize? 

 Thanks mom's.  :)

If you are talking about high school age, try Dual Enrollment,  which allows children to home school and receive college courses at the same time (I believe on campus or online) . 42 States offer it for free until the child turns 18.  Some of my friends have done this, and it worked out very well for their children..

One friend's son received his college degree early, and was the youngest person to be hired by NASA...his dream career.
