Hello.  I was wondering if there is any moms out there that are homeschooling older kids?    I have a ds that is 13 yr & we are doing  8th grade right now, but do plan on doing 9th grade with this homeschooling as well.    Thanks.

My daughter is going to be 17 and is a junior in HS.  She has been HS'd since 8th grade.  I was also homeschooled and graduated as a homeschooled kid, same with my two younger brothers.

Can you ladies tell me about your homeschooling?   What classes your doing & such.   I would love to get an idea.   Also would any of your kids like a homeschooled pen-pal..or sorts?   My son is 13 he will be 14 April 2nd.

My son is 14, and in the 8th grade. He's deciding now if he's planning on continuing home-schooling for 9th grade or not.

We are doing our schooling with the city school distric.   He is doing the same  as the reg schools around here.    I wish I can get him into extra stuff, but right now all he wants to do with his free time with play on the computer, with his DS & or gamecube.

We had that talk too.    We talked about him going to public or stay where we are now.    I told him about the pros & cons & told him I would give him a week to think about.    He came up with staying with homeschooling.    I have to say I was very happy to hear that.    I wish you guys the best of luck in deciding what is best for your son.

My family is currently trying to apply to home educate.  It's interesting to see the politics of the process come to light!  My son is 11 yrs old.  He'll be 12 in December.  He is currently in Jr High (Gr 7) and in a special education class that is, emotionally, just too much for him to handle as there is a lot of conflict amongst the students.  I would like to follow the Traditional Home Education style and get back to the basics with him.  Really, my goal is to give him a chance to enjoy learning.  I am surprised at the level of opposition I am getting from my best friends who seem to think grinding out work at a desk is the only way you can succeed in life.
