mazakaal Posted January 30, 2012 Share Posted January 30, 2012 I've been trying to get my 13yo to talk to me about what he's interested in and what he'd like to learn in high school. I wanted to explain the general requirements for college admission (4yrs English and math, at least 3 years history and science, pe, electives, foreign language, etc) and give him some choice in what he'd want to learn to fill those requirements. Does he want to do earth science or biology next year? Do the materials in MFW look interesting to him? Would he like to take any of the vast array of courses from TPS? He didn't even want to sit down and discuss it, and when I finally got him next to me on the sofa with the laptop opened, he just said, "Yeah, that looks fine." Have you had a similar experience with your kids? There are so many different options out there, and one of the advantages of home education is the ability to let kids learn about things that are interesting to them, but he just doesn't care. :confused: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
