Senior High Home Schooling: Help - My Child is Smarter than Me!

Senior High Home Schooling: Help - my child is smarter than me!

Yikes! My child is a genius and smarter than me! It's a scary thought, isn't it? But remember to stop and congratulate yourself and your child - be proud of the great job that you've done so far. A great resource for your 'genious' is to tap into the online home schooling resources. There are curriculums that can be purchased and completed online. Some will provide textbooks as well as standard home schooling products. Another option is to take classes that can be held in a virtual classroom, students can use a web cam to participate or they can simply use lecture based courses online. The online options for your student are endless. For starters, just do a Google search for 'home school high school' and see all the information that comes up. Also, many cities have parent co-ops to help share resources. Check with your local library to see where and when your local home schooling group meets. Sharing books and resources with other parents is an excellent, low cost option.

Should you stop home schooling and consider public or private school instead? Many parents feel that during the high school years, education at home is too difficult and find it hard to challenge their child. They consider sending their child to public high school. But, this can be a difficult and troublesome transition for your 'brainy' teenager. The environment in a public high school can be anything but stimulating to an advanced student or even inviting to a child who has been home schooled up until now. A private school may be better, but still may not tailor their curiculum to the advanced student not to mention the expense of high tuition. There are still the problems with your child being 'the new kid' at school. New friends, new teachers, new expectations are all anxiety producing for your child.

What other options are there? If you feel over-whelmed about home schooling your senior high school student and don't want to consider public or private high school - what else can you do? Consider your network of fellow parents who home school. What are you best at? What are their strengths? There may be a way to trade skills with other parents. A parent who has skills and interests in high school educating may be willing to teach your child along with their child in trade for you teaching one of their children who is younger. The double bonus here is added socialization for both high school students.

College Post Secondary Option Another resource for your 'advanced' high school student is the post secondary option at your local college or junior college. This has great advantages for both you and your child. Your child won't be branded as 'the new kid' - everyone at college is new. Many times you aren't required to pay college tuition for the classes that your child takes. Your child receives high school credit and enjoys the socialization and mental stimulation that advanced classes can bring. It's a great option for both of you!
