Homeschooling a Middle Schooler
Homeschooling your young adolescent carries with it some of the challenges of puberty but it also is a time period where some fruits of earlier work can be harvested. Here are a few points to consider in homeschooling your 12-14 year old.
Independence – Take advantage of your child's growing need for independence and for self-expression by having her work on independent projects. Provide an assignment book or planner for her that lists independent requirements for schoolwork. Ask her to do some of her own research to complete these assignments. With guidance, she can use the Internet as an effective research tool.
